What Will It Bee? Baby Shower

baby showerMeet Jacky: Our Senior Online Marketing Manager! Jacky graciously allowed us to take a peek inside her super-adorable baby shower and told us a little bit about the process:

Tell us about your shower outfit! What did you love most about it?

I’m very petite, so I wanted to wear something fitted that showed off my baby bump. I loved this Laundry by Shelli Segal Dress right away because it was comfortable and stylish, which is very important to me at this point in my pregnancy. To add in a pop of color, I paired the dress with a bright statement necklace. I made sure to wear a maternity shaper underneath, which helped to give me a smooth, sleek look and also helped to relieve some back pain I’ve been experiencing.

How did you decide on your location and theme? Who helped to plan the shower?

The town I live in is very rich in history, so I really wanted to take advantage of that. The shower was held at a charming, old hotel that was built in the 1700’s with beautiful antique features. Since my husband and I are keeping the gender of the baby a secret, the theme was “What Will it Bee?” My family coordinated everything around the theme from the honey jar favors to the bee hive shaped cake. My mother-in-law even baked all the sweet treats that also fit into the theme. It was truly perfect!

What was the most memorable gift you received?

We received a lot of amazing and thoughtful gifts. One of the gifts that stood out to me is from my mother-in-law. She crocheted a replica of an alphabet picture that my husband had in his room as a baby; that was very special to me. Passing on these traditions are very important in building our family together.

Look Who’s Laughing!

What better sound exists than a baby’s laugh? Add two of them laughing together and it’s another level of adorable! YouTube user, It’s Judy’s Life, shared this heartwarming video of her daughter interacting with another baby friend. We can’t help but smile at these two and we know you will too!

Game On! Personalize Your Reveal

Sick of the same old gender reveal party ideas? You’re in luck! Miss Party Mom has some clever and crafty ways to spruce up the big reveal.

Share the fun!

Provide a fun game for guests to partake in. Let your friends and family come up with name suggestions for a boy or a girl and place their votes into a jar. This can also serve as a great keepsake item to display in the baby’s nursery.

Cast Your Vote!

Allow guests to vote on the baby’s gender, and then tally it up! Pick a fun prize to award the winning team.

The Big Reveal!

We absolutely love this idea: Have your party store put confetti into a matte, dark colored balloon. When it comes time to reveal, simply pop!

From Us to You..

Happy 4th of July from the birth place of independence and our home office, Philadelphia!
