A Firefly Baby Shower

We threw a shower for my college friend Jan a couple of weeks ago. She's having a baby girl. Jan definitely wouldn't call herself a "girly" girl. She's outdoorsy, athletic and tons of fun . . . we wanted to reflect that in the shower. We knew we wanted to use a little bit of pink, but without too many frills.

We decided to do a "firefly" theme and it was super cute. Everyone had a good time and it was great to catch up with old friends.

Here's a version of the invitation (available in the shop):


Here were the favors:

And take a look at this genius idea for fruit pizzas . . . it's so easy to serve them when each individual sugar cookie is topped with frosting and fruit. They were incredible. I may or may not have had 4.

Food items for the baby shower are one of the most important features of the baby shower. When guests arrive at a baby shower they are expecting food that includes desserts, appetizers and finger food for baby shower.
