By now you’ve probably heard the news that my husband and I are expecting our first child in September. Over the weekend, our baby girl received yet another fabulous welcome via a couple’s baby shower. A few weeks ago, I shared the pink and brown ladybug shower that my family hosted down in Houston. This time my husband was included and we celebrated with our friends here in Central Illinois. Two baby showers! I know, we’re very lucky and honestly a little spoiled! Check out this modern couple’s shower in black and white with purple accents, hosted by our good friends Ted & Meredith.
Pops of purple created the perfect contrast to the black and white polka dots. I love the idea of using a hurricane vase and filling it with diapers to create a centerpiece. Such a modern twist on the traditional diaper cake. We played “Guess That Baby Food” and guests went home with an adorable and unique favor – hand soap labeled with our baby’s due date. Meredith also sent me home with matching note cards, keeping my thank you cards in theme.
We could not thank Ted and Meredith enough for hosting such a lovely shower. It was a wonderful way to celebrate with friends and welcome our little girl!
