Little Guy in a Tie Surprise Baby Shower

This weekend I held a surprise shower for my dear friend Corey. She and her husband Duncan have two very sweet little girls and are now welcoming there first little boy Brady. I had heard that she thought since she already had two children that maybe she shouldn't have a shower. I knew how to fix that quickly! It would have to be a surprise and a good one! After speaking with her husband and getting him to conspire with me the party was on. We had to have the party at a restaurant because the mommy to be goes to brunch every Sunday with her family and it was the perfect plan to pull off the surprise. So off to Mimi's Cafe we went! I choose a theme of Little Guy in a Tie and just ran with the color scheme. There were bow tie and neck tie cookies as well as baby onsie cookies with a tie on them as favors. I put little mustaches in the flower arrangements and even made several ribbon topiaries for the sweets table. We had a wonderful time and Corey was truly surprised. It was such a great day and we all can't wait to meet baby Brady!!

  1. Very cute decorations!

    I'm thinking about hosting a baby shower with a bow-tie theme. I have some questions.....

    How did the bow tie required thing turn out? Where guests into it and think it was cute or did they hesitate to participate?


  2. Happy to know about this baby shower party. Couple of months ago, took help of internet and booked one of the exquisite San Francisco event venues. Arranged my best friend’s baby shower party and it is an unforgettable one as enjoyed a lot there.
