Blue and Chocolate Brown Baby Shower

Our inspiration for this Swanky blue and chocolate brown baby shower theme all started with Swanky Chicks very own Chocolate and Blue Mommy to Be baby shower invitation. Color is often all the inspiration you need to put together a wonderful shower theme.

We designed our table with blue, brown and baby boy in mind! We hung the tissue paper Pom-Pom's that were featured in an August DIY Wednesday over the table to add color and interest. Our centerpiece consisted of a very simple yet elegant arrangment of cream colored candles and glass vases.

I had the hardest time finding placemats and napkins in the right shades of blue and brown so I improvised. The placemats were laminated scrapbook paper, and I found paper napkins that were the right color. We dressed them just as we would cloth napkins, wrapped in a piece of ribbon and secured with a diaper pin.
All of the guests were favored with these adorable personalized lip balm baby shower favors. They were arranged in simple silver mint julip cups that added an extra touch of sophistication. We loved that we could choose our mommy-to-be's hair and skin color, as well as the label color to coordinate perfectly with our blue and chocolate brown theme.

The adorable personalized lip balms weren't the only favor guests took home. These wonderful little baby carriage shaped favor boxes created a great display and were filled with candies for everyone to take home. I love a favor that can pull double duty.

We added one more personalized little touch to bring it all together. The Chocolate and Brown Mommy-to-Be invitations have coordinating water bottle wrappers! We put out a couple dozen mini bottled waters on our food table for guests to grab either as a refreshment at the shower or a great little take home. Get creative, and have fun. We created a very traditional table setting and centerpiece but threw unexpected little baby decorations, to create a sophisticated and swanky baby shower.
