Baby Shower Planning... I WANNA DO IT!

Just like's in me to give!

I was a Wedding Planner for 8 years of my 27 years of existence and when it comes to parties I must get in there and plan if not steal the entire show and plan it myself. Call it too much creativ-ness in this wee little brain or a control issue - either which status I'll gladly take!

While coming close to Sofia's arrival I am starting to give a great deal of thought to the Shower. From the Guest List, to the Invites, to the Food and of course the Theme.... Very untraditional I have decided that I will plan my Baby Shower - it will be hosted at Nana's House however in regards to what is happening when and where - that will be all me! I enjoy so much in planning parties that the thought of letting go of planning the FIRST PARTY for my Baby Girl just about throws me into a coma. 

Most will think that I will go ahead and do an Alice in Wonderland style Event as Tea, AIW and Me really go hand in hand {as you can see here for my Un-Birthday last year} however to me, been there, done that! I won't go as far as eliminating the sipping of Tea, as this would just be silly - but I will go with a different theme that includes the hot beverage we have all grown to love. Thanks to "the hostess with the mostess" I have taken inspiration from their Farmhouse Brunch and made it more of an Enchanted Forest Tea Party Brunch.

With taking inspiration from all the food they have served at the Event I will be serving French Toast stuffed with Cream Cheese, Yogurt & Granola Bar, Bacon Stewers, Scones with Jam & Cream, Fresh Fruit, Apple Juice, Orange Juice, Champagne, Milk and of course TEA. 

Next on the list to plan will be Stationary {which is my absolute favorite part} and any games that we will play and of course the favors. "Oh the planning my Baby Shower"...I know this goes against any rule in the book - but you know what, I've never lived by any rules to date, why start now? I urge women out there to do something out of the box, don't follow the rules or traditions what you heart tells you to! Tell me? Any women out there plan their own Baby Shower?
