There are constantly new fun baby products coming out that sometimes when registering or looking for a gift for a baby shower, it can be super overwhelming. Having a 16 month old I found myself thrust back into the baby world and made so many new discoveries. With that in mind I created the ultimate baby shower gift guide for you together with Baby Cubby. They have all of my most favorite baby items, so I put them together for you here in a handy guide. Most of these are products I use daily and are sure to be the perfect gifts. From the ONLY bottle my baby would accept, to the absolutely softest jammies ever. The little ruffle on them makes them pjs AND an outfit, perfect for when you are on the go and want baby to nap or sleep. A pair of Freshly Picked moccasins are the best gift, and they turn into an heirloom which I love. Now the Dockatot is something I never got but oh how I obsessed over it. It’s the king of getting your baby to sleep, and I love the play yard attachment for play and sleep. Seriously this would be the ultimate gift. Don’t forget mama, an ultra soft cozy blanket and a fabulous necklace that baby can chew on when teething, are great gifts. I love my chewbead necklace. Happy shopping friends!
As my due date approaches (less than 2 weeks) I have to remind myself to have patience. This little one will arrive when he or she is ready. In the meantime I have other distractions like my baby shower being featured on Camille Styles yesterday!! So excited about it. Check out all the details here. The photo below is from my shower, by the amazing Andrea Patricia Photography.
I have these daydreams of having a party inspired by things like The Black Apple and a magical fairy land. I love this vibe for a shower or birthday party! There are endless possibilities for details.
Emily and I attended a dear friends baby shower yesterday and the place settings were just too darling!! Happy Weekend my friends.
I adore finding the very best baby shower or new baby gift. Here are a few of my favorites as of late.
This Honest Company baby arrival set has all the essentials and arrives in a wooden box made from sustainable paulownia wood!
Pink Fox mary janes from Seed Heritage are too cute.
Aden and Anais swaddles are my favorite and this New Beginnings gift set is a great selection.
Bamboo clothes are my favorite for newborns as they are so super soft. This Kickee Pants romper is great.
Of course something I could not have lived without with Piper was my Beaba baby food maker. This new and approved double version is like a dream!
I am a big fan of having some sort of activity or craft at a party. Here are a few of my favorite ideas. These can be used for bachelorette parties, showers, birthdays, or just because.
1. DIY Terrariums! | create a Terrarium bar, all set up with all the fixings. Give simple instructions and let the guests do the rest.
2. Flower Friendship bracelets | have guests dip dye their ribbons and adorn their wristlets with pretty flowers, real or faux.
3. Make your own Craft Brew | I have always wanted to try making my own beer, so what fun would it be to do it with a big group drinking all the while!
4. Sugar Scrub Bar | create a bar filled with the sugar scrub base and then different mix-ins to allow guests to customize their own sugar scrub.
5. DIY Herb Gardens | I love the idea of allowing guests to pick their seeds & plant tiny herb gardens.
A super fun custom baby shower invitation we did recently. Loving the watercolor chevron and the fun fonts.
So excited to be bringing you a behind the scenes look at Emily’s Baby’s shower. One of the best parts of the day was the Loose Leaf Tea Bar. This was a bar overflowing with all different types of teas. Guests were invited to create their own custom tea blend in an adorable animal topped jar. The jars were sourced from Specialty Bottles (a great resource), and then painted & topped with toy animals. I found the tea in bulk from San Francisco Herb Co and they had great prices on the tea strainers in bulk as well. One thing I think guests really enjoyed were the signs next to each tea variety. Each tea was labeled with it’s flavor profile and drinking characteristics!
We used Emily’s mother’s vintage tea pots as vessels for the teas. This was so perfect and gorgeous, but if you don’t have access to these, simple large glass bowls would be pretty as well.
Now here is your list in order to create your own tea bar. This would be so darling for a bridal shower, birthday party, or ladies luncheon.
