arrows and bows baby showerPeople often ask me the secret to making high maintenance showers less maintenance. I usually tell them, “Find great help.” And then they laugh. But I’m not kidding.

arrows and bow baby showerY’all, this arrows and bows shower for my sweet friend Katie and her Little Miss Mae was amazing. The food was, I’m not kidding, perhaps the best baby shower menu ever (Creme Brulee Croissant French Toast? I mean, seriously?). The hot drink buffet (tons of tea, herbs, honey, and hot coffee with tea, sugar and syrups too) was bustling the whole time, and the hopes people shared for Miss Mae were beyond sweet.

THEME

BRUNCH MENU

I can’t take credit for a single thing (well, the sugar cookies), but I can say that every thing I tried was delicious!

HOT DRINK STATION

DECOR

Arrow garlands made for a great graphic, all hanging in a row. Monogrammed mugs of flowers dotted every single surface- lovely! And framed lyrics from all sorts of baby songs added to the pretty.
