What is better than all things girly,
all things pink,
all things ruffles and sweet rose print?
Maybe a French country styled baby shower?
I’d have to say the only thing better than all of that is finally having a little girl in our family.
This evening I wanted to share just a few photos from my sister-in-laws baby shower.
This is the shower that I mentioned I would be styling and decorating in Sneak Peeks of Upcoming Posts.
In that post, I shared a few inspirational photos that we had saved in our group Pin Board, Baby Shower For Girls.
To my surprise, within minutes of publishing that post,
my sister-in-law messaged me saying that she loved the pictures and that style was perfect.
Of course I was thrilled that she liked the French Country style.
After all, it is one of my favorite styles to work with.
But knowing my sister-in-laws tastes, I opted to use a few touches of bolder pinks mixed in with the soft and pale pink roses.
She isn’t much of a pastels kind of gal.
Corals, bold pinks, and patterns are usually her go-to colors.
The one thing that she and I have in common is that we both like country and rustic styles.
At first I questioned what it was that she liked about the inspiration photos since they were extremely pale pink and white.
After studying them, I knew the answer….
it was the birds and rustic branches that she liked.
Even though she says she isn’t a girly-girl, I beg to differ….
I think my sister-in-law is really an undercover French Country Style enthusiast and she hasn’t realized it quite yet. Ha, ha.
In another post, I will share more details about the styling along with close up photos.
Although, I have to admit, I hand shot all the photos because I was on a time crunch.
That aren’t as sharp as I would have liked them to be.
I was also amped up on quite a bit of coffee since I had gone to bed at 3 a.m and was up again at 7 a.m.
This was a pattern for several days prior to the day of the baby shower.
Anyway, part 2 with all the details is headed your way.
Here’s some behind the scenes action shots featuring my mother working on all the food.
