More Peach...and Pink!

As promised, today's inspiration is more of my favorite color palette! You could call the late summer wedding inspiration coral, so today we have peach and pink! This first inspiration board is definitely for a baby girl shower, but a little off the beaten path. I like to call it a Peaches and Cream shower.

Great details:

These super easy to make poms courtesy of the original party diva, Martha Stewart.

And how about this Peach Cake from Betty Crocker?

Details: peach and pink ranunculus, peaches and cream sign, peach cake, baby in pretty wrap, paper poms, hand-crafted invitation, peach jam, peach maternity top, rose teacup votive.

Other things you could include:
- a dessert table dedicated to peaches and cream! peach cobbler and ice cream, peach buds candy or peach rings, cream puffs, peach lemonade, etc.
- lace details on invitations, favors, or decor
- matching party decor from Plates and Napkins
- baskets of flowers in peach and cream. If you like the idea of paper poms, you continue that theme inexpensively with paper flowers! An easy tutorial for pretty peonies can be found here - love her blog name!

If you just love the idea of a traditional pink baby shower, why not run with it? That's exactly the idea behind this girly pink party.

Details here: Pink balloons and flower arrangements, sweet pink buffet, pink floral pennant bunting (very easy to make! maybe I'll include a post about creating these fabulous decorations), pink invitation - complete with baby's first picture!, pink lemonade in mason jar glasses, assorted gifts, pink Gerbera daisies, pink polka dot plates, strawberry freeze dessert (
I have a great recipe! - contact me for more info), baby bottle candle favors, girly cupcakes, and pink diaper cake.

Because so much inspiration was drawn from this Pretty in Pink Shower featured on the fabulous
Hostess with the Mostess, I will share details soon!
