A Spring Baby Shower

This past weekend my sister threw my husband and I a couples baby shower. Hosted on the rooftop of our apartment building, we were blessed with perfect weather, 360 degree views of Manhattan, and the most fantastic group of friends. Although that's all we needed to have a good time, I do know there were a lot of details that were carefully thought about. Here's a list of a few key elements and inspiration images...

#1: A Color Story

It's important to pick a color theme for any party. For us, yellow was the color of the day, cheery and gender neutral!

#2: Pretty Spring Flower Arrangements

White hydrangeas in blue and white china look fresh and are cost effective.

Blue and white china is a great alternative to your typical glass vase. You probably have a few around the house so use what you've got!

#3: White Shade Umbrellas

It can get hot on a city roof deck so white tables with matching umbrellas keep guests cool and make the space look extra inviting.

#4: Great Food

Finger food in "baby size" are easy to eat and you can skip the silverware. We had mini brioche
sandwiches, and a must at any baby shower - cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery.

#5: The Baby Bump

It wouldn't be a baby shower without one!

Me and my bump - boy or girl?!
