All Pigs Are Beautiful Baby Shower

All Pigs Are Beautiful Baby Shower

There are little pigs and big pigs,
pigs with long snouts and pigs with short snouts,
pigs with ears that stand up and pigs with ears that flop down.
But all pigs are beautiful.

This weekend I had the pleasure of throwing a baby shower for my future nephew! We traveled 10 hours to get there the day after New England got hit with 24 inches of snow! Luckily the roads were plowed and ready for us and we made it there safely. The shower was so much fun.
Highlights of the shower:
  • We asked guests to bring a book for the parents-to-be rather than a card. We included a matching bookplate in the invitation for guests to sign and place inside their book.
  • Cake pops from Terri's Treasures were a huge hit!
  • Favors were pig shaped gingerbread cookies tied with twine and matching thank you tag.
  • A family of metal pig silhouettes greeted guests outside as they arrived (forgot to take a picture!)
  • Food included soups, salad, chicken salad, croissants, and homemade country fair bread.
  • We set up a children's table with personalized place mats and poppers. Inside the popper party favors were farm animal stamps to take home.
  • Mason jar drinking glasses and paper straws
  • Mason jars wrapped with fabric used as candle holders
  • Onesie bunting hanging in front of the gift opening area
  • homemade apple pie
  • twine fabric garlands
