Celebrating the Mom-to-bee

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Have you heard the buzz?  Spring is just around the corner, which means now is the perfect time to start planning your spring baby shower!  One of my favorite spring shower invitations has to be the mom-to-bee baby shower invitation here to the left!  It’s chic, stylish, modern and oh-so-appropriate for a spring shower.  And if you’re unsure as to the gender of the baby it’s even more appropriate!

This Doc Milo invitation features a subtle tan gingham background and a haute mommy-to- be in a black dress with a yellow ribbon and a large party hat.  She stands in her heels next to a yellow and grey baby crib filled with shower gifts, all below a buzzing bumble bee and the words “mom-to-bee”.  It’s the perfect way to set the scene for your spring baby shower, (but don’t worry, we won’t expect the mommy-to-be to show up in heels like this sassy mom – unless she wants to)!  The invitation even has a matching thank you note to complete the set, and to create a great gift for the mommy-to-be after her shower, so that she can send thank you notes for all of her gifts.

Looking for a little inspiration for your buzzing ba-bee shower?  Take a few ideas from our collage below, and create a fully coordinated baby shower around honey and the baby-to-bee – two of life’s most sweetest things!  Create your party scene with hues of yellow and light grey – two of the most popular baby shower colors currently!  Offer your guests some bee hive chocolate cupcakes or cake pops and arrange them in fun honeycomb style patterns throughout your buffet table.  Decorate the room with buzzing bees, paper puff bee hives, baby onesies and a tall diaper cake for the baby-to-bee.  Present the mom-to-bee with hand knit bee themed booties to add to her baby bee nursery.
