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. 

Onesie decorations and burlap favor bags.

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.
