baby shower :: pink . love . valentine's

I helped throw a baby shower for my sister in law who is pregnant with her first baby girl. The shower was a week before valentine's day, so we couldn't resist doing a heart themed shower for baby Harper. I wish I had a better picture of the table cloth my mother in law made. It had a scalloped edge with red ric-rac...seriously darling.
my mother in law made this darling bouquets out of cupcake liners, using these initial mugs to spell out harper. how cute are the heart straws found here on etsy, placed in little milk bottles (which are actually frappuccino bottles with the labels taken off and cleaned out)
we did a breakfast shower with stratta, cinammon rolls, bagels & cream cheese, juice, fruit, and an array of milk (chocolate, strawberry, regular)
I made these little garlands which are great because I can re-use them every year to decorate for valentine's day. I ordered the felt balls from a great shop on etsy that has every color you could ever want. The heart garland I made by hand cutting felt into heart shapes, and then stitching them together with embroidery thread. It was a little time consuming, by very simple.
of course i also made corresponding water bottle labels and we had a cute party favor for all the guests as they left
little heart shaped cookie cutters in a clear box, wrapped in bakers twine with a little "i love harper" tag

Valentines themed baby shower! Wow, that’s such a cool idea to celebrate a new life. Thanks a lot for this chic idea and I would love to use this for my sister’s baby shower. Thinking to host a grand party so please share some suggestions for the spacious venues in Houston for this event.
