Baby Shower Inspiration: Garden Tea Party

A friend has kindly asked me if I would decorate her mid-June baby shower with the simple idea of a garden tea party. And without getting too girly, considering she’s having a boy, or too “baby themed” …here is a little inspiration for the mama-to-be.

…it will be interesting {to me} to see how my inspiration pans out …sometimes unconventional and probably less literal in ways. We’ll see 😉

    I ♥ it, Maegan!
    Since she’s having a boy maybe go w/ a majority color theme the color of the cupcakes. What is that… a Tiffany blue? Luv that color.
    You’re so creative & I’m sure everything is going to turn out beautifully.

    baby food jars with garden roses?
    amazing! garden roses are my absolute favorite! i just wish they weren’t so dang expensive. but that’s what makes them so great.

    cupcakes, they’re ok, i just haven’t been able to eat a whole one in months. it’s crazy.

    I love the idea of baby food jars with roses in them! But that means you have to find baby food jars – oooh – does Delilah eat from those jars??
    I also love the lemonade with garden garnish!!! And – the cucumber sandwiches….That little white dish with the flowers is cute too!
    I need to find a punch bowl like that one! Love it!
    oooh – that picture made me think of stargazer lilies! Those are my fav!

    Thanks for posting!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with! AND THANK YOU FOR DOING IT. I love you for it!

    Love this. I too am in the midst of planning a shower for my sister who is having a boy. We are having it at an herb garden education center and will be learning all about herbs while celebrating. Thanks for the great ideas!

    The baby food jar idea is great! But where can you get empty jars from? That’s a brilliant theme, I’m sure it will be beautiful.
