My next winning party feature goes to this

Rustic Glam Baby Shower
submitted by Katie Grace Design!
How beautiful!
I adore the ‘Hot Cocoa’ Bar!
In Katie’s words…This shower was so fun to put together because it was for one of my dearest friends. She is having “Baby Shepherd” in a few weeks and we wanted to do everything we could to honor this new mama! I styled this shower to look glamorous but I wanted it to have rusticity to bring some “Boyish” charm into the mix. Aubrey loves gold, bronze and brown so I wanted everything to look like something she would want to take home and put right in her nursery or in her house. I think we pulled it off because she showed up with an outfit that matched the shower PERFECTLY! Believe me when I say I know this girl very well!

To start off we did a fabulous “HOT COCOA” bar with every topping you could imagine; Peppermints, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, whip cream, heath chips, peppermint syrup, raspberry syrup, caramel syrup and of course marshmallows!”


“Aubrey collects crosses so my gift to her was a custom cross made by Gibson Gals Creations and they did a fabulous job! I told her the colors of her nursery and they took it and ran with it.”


“Dessert Bar…. Feather boas from Save on Crafts and lace fabric from a flea market. I loved how the backdrop turned out.”Photobucket

“Gold tree candle holder filled with bronze, red velvet cake balls. They were scrumptious! The candle holder is from T.J. Maxx. (These were supposed to be Bedazzled Bon Bons but with our crazy winter storm here they were stuck in Florida! One of our local bakeries, Rick’s Bakery came to the rescue last minute.)”Photobucket

“This was one of my favorite parts.. I had been brainstorming like CRAZY trying to come up with something ORIGINAL for a baby shower activity. I bought these paper mache boxes and had my friend Emily work her magic on these plain boxes. They turned out cuter than I imagined! Everyone wrote little notes to Baby Shepherd on the building blocks and one day they will be a great toy for the baby and also they can be used as cute nursery decor!”Photobucket
“Party Favors… Glass mugs from the Dollar tree filled with a scrumptious recipe for Hot Chocolate and a wooden spoon dipped in chocolate. (Spoons from Garnish with some added glam and bedazzle!) The tag reads, ‘May every sip bring you joy and remind you to pray for the Smith little boy’.”Photobucket
Thanks for your submission, Katie!
Amazing job.
Congratulations on being the winning party feature today!

    There were so many things I liked about this party feature! The colors, for one thing. I am such a sucker for anything rustic or brown. I use Kraft paper a lot for that reason – because it's brown! LOL Very nice party idea! – Karen

    WOW! What an absolutely gorgeous event. It looks amazing!!!

    A woman named Kellie follows your blog. I am guessing you don't know her story. On Feb. 17th she was teaching kindergarten when she got the worst call of her life. Her 4 month old baby died in the care of the babysitter. Kellie is a wonderful woman who needs our help! If you could see her blog and feel inspired, it would be amazing if you could do a post about the auction they are doing on this coming Monday, the 28th. They are trying to raise enough money to (in the future) have another child and be able to stay at home with them full-time. Kellie and James didn't deserve what happened to them. Could you please help out a wonderful family in need by posting the link to the auction on your site? Thank you.

    I have been on your site most of the morning looking for 1st birthday party ideas.
    I saw a hot coco bar idea, and thought that’d be perfect for my baby boy born on Christmas Eve. I stumbled on the goldish hot coco bar, for “Baby Shepherd.” That just confirmed our theme because my baby’s name is Shepherd. I just had to stop and comment about that!
    How neat! Love this site… thanks!
