This past weekend, I had the pleasure of hosting a baby shower brunch for my best friend April, with the help of some of her family and friends. April has a 3 year old son and is expecting her first girl(!). She has no idea what fun and sweetness that is in store for her with a little girl! I couldn’t be more excited for her to get to experience both [gender] worlds.
April has never been a big fan of pink. She told me a couple months ago, when we were talking about the baby’s nursery, that she did not want anything pink in her nursery. So I thought uh-oh, that means I should probably avoid pink at her shower! I was a little stumped at first because I’ve never planned a baby shower for a little girl with ZERO pink. I brainstormed for a bit and ended up deciding on a “You are my sunshine” theme because I could incorporate lots of yellow and white, plus the baby will be born in the summer time so it seemed perfect!
While scouring Pinterest for ideas, I didn’t really like what I was coming across in the “You are my sunshine” category. It all seemed more like a child’s birthday party, not a pretty, elegant baby shower. What I was picturing in my mind was much different than what I was seeing on Pinterest, so I decided to go a different “sunshine” route and use lemons, white accents, yellow and green flowers, and galvanized metal stands and vases.

I always enjoy stepping outside of my “party comfort zone” to tackle something new. So thanks, April for hating the color pink!(?) I cannot wait to meet sweet baby Eden!
