A Rustic Onesie Themed Baby Shower (that’s twice as nice)
Get inspired by this rustic onesie themed baby shower! Featuring simple decorating ideas, a personalized onesie station and a delicious party menu. Perfect for those special moms to be!
At the end of July I was honored to host a baby shower for my sweet cousin, who is expecting twin boys! Yes, that’s right, twin boys! We have a number of twins in my family, but it was still such a surprise when she told us her big news.
I’m so excited for her and her husband and cannot wait to meet the little ones when they arrive in a few short months.
When I first started to plan her shower, I knew I wanted to do something that was inspired by what she loves and her interests.
I found myself quickly gravitating towards greens and browns, and decided to run with a rustic/organic decor. Right up her alley. I was pretty happy with what I came up with and I think my cousin was as well.
I used quite a bit of burlap and twine for the decorations, to give it that rustic feel. The invitations that we picked out featured onesies along a clothesline, so I carried that as well throughout the space.
For favors, we found onesie birdseed ornaments. If you know my cousin and her husband, then I can’t begin to tell you how perfect these were.
Instead of any shower games, we had a station to create personalized onesies. These turned out great and were much easier to do than I thought.
Instead of playing music in the background, I had Father of the Bride II playing quietly on the TV. I personally love this movie and it was nice to have it on while the mom-to-be was opening all her presents.
Now, the food. The shower was during lunch but I still wanted to have something substantial for everyone to eat. I also tried to pick items that I could prepare ahead of time, to decrease any stress the day of the event.
Sparkling lemonade and limeade
On a final note, thank you to my cousin and aunt for letting me be such a big part of this special time. I had an absolute blast planning your shower and love you both.
