Claribel's "Little Man" Baby Shower

A couple weeks ago I had the honor of helping Rose with her sister's baby shower. I have know both Rose and Claribel for over 25 years. Needless to say they are both more than friends they are my sisters  too.
Choosing a theme for "Mrs. Little" was a no brainer once we were told that The Littles were expecting a little handsome.  Of course it had to be a "Little Man" baby shower. Rose picked the colors of yellow, gray, and blue. I absolutely loved her choice and had a great time working with both the colors and the theme.

Because the baby shower was held at nice quaint restaurant we decided to keep the dessert table small but sweet. 
J At Your Service made this ADORABLE banner! It could not be more perfect....right?!
These beautiful candy apples and "Little Man" cookies were made by the talented Roni of Roni Sugar Creations. Aren't they just gorgeous?! 
The table also included "It's a Boy" gum cigars, yummy rice crispy treats and cute stache chocolates made by Samantha from Sweets by Sam. Added tini ties to the rice crispy treats and everywhere else I could...hehe! 
We hung a tini little man clothesline from the sweets table.
I created a special faux chalkboard to welcome the "Little" one to the world. I used color chalk on the print to give it some color, this is a great budget friendly way to add color to your prints.
Found the cutest little bow tie and mustache earrings to give to all the guests as favors. Created a matching earring holder that read "It's the LITTLE things that make life BIG". The ladies loved them!
I also made all the guest little ties that they could wear. I found a great tutorial on how to make them here
The guests were asked to write some useful advice for the parents to be. The advise was pinned on the little man mannequin. Awesome advise table sign from Three Little Monkeys Studio. Gretchen was so sweet, she changed the colors to match the shower.
Made props for some photo fun.
Chair banner for the "Little Mama"
Guests tables were set with gray runners, flowers, and "LITTLE baby, big BLESSING"table signs.
Each place setting included the menu, mustache rings,  embellished straws (bow tie, mustache, or glasses) and this brilliant "Name The Stache" game also made by Three Little Monkeys Studio.
The ladies loved the adorable straws because not only were they fun to drink out of but they also doubled as props. J At Your Service made the fancy bow tie and mustache straws.  I found the glasses at Michaels and my hubby spray painted them gray for me. Because he is cool like that. 
 We enjoyed Rose's lovely cupcakes as we played games.
Our sweet friends Denise and Annabelle helped us with the games. Which included "What size is the mommy's tummy" "Baby Scrabble" and "Guess how many in the baby bottle". 
And of course the "Little Mama" opened all her wonderful and beautiful gifts.
It was such a sweet day. Claribel was surrounded by her closest friends and family. Everyone made it extra special for her. They showed her and her little man lots and lots of love.  We all can't wait to meet the new "Little" bundle of joy!

Congratulations my sweet amiga. We cannot even express how happy we are for you and Nate.  May God bless your "Little Man" with happiness and love always.


P.S. Thank you soooo much to all the vendors. You are all beyond sweet and utterly talented.
