Sweet Pea Shower

Well the Sweet Pea shower was a success!  This theme was a lot of fun to work with and pretty easy too.  This shower was done on a budget and in a short amount of time but I think it turned out pretty well. The mom-to-be loved it, and that is most important :)  

The mom-to-be does not know the sex of the baby but said she loved the color green.  I wanted to go with a bright green instead of a muted green and I really found a lot more decorations in the brighter green to my delight.

Here is the dessert table with the "pea" filled baby bottle favors (everyone loved).  The petit fours have peas in a pod on them.  I found the Baby Love green bag at Hallmark and fell in love with it.  It went so well with the colors.  I used it to give the mom-to-be a few items to take home. The coordinating paper ware is from Hostess Jo.

I also used the bottles as part of the table decorations.

One of the centerpieces.  I used real peas!  The outer vase is larger than the center one.  I inserted the flowers in the smaller one then into the larger one and filled with peas.

The cute circle paper is actually a gift bag I cut into squares.  I thought it was really fun and colorful.

I also scattered green glass gems on the table that I brought from home.

The ladies munched on mini bbq sandwiches and 7 layer salad with peas.

These are the candles I used on the food table.  White unscented candles surrounded by peas!

Even the 7 layer salad fit into the decor!

Hope this gives you inspiration for your next Sweet Pea shower!  This theme works great with twins or triplets too.

I love to eat green peas and also know how to make a variety of different dishes with it.

Competitive advantage is the secret of the innovation, which now than in any time in history.
Creativity is necessary for innovation, we should advocate creativity, then turn it into a creative, and this will lead to the successful innovation competition.


i love the peas in the flower vases and candle holders! Brilliant! Your styrofoam and felt pea pod makes me think of a Halloween costume I made many years ago. My husband and I were peas and carrots and I used styrofoam too! You are sooo clever for cutting the gift bag for your table centerpieces.

I want to throw a pea in the pod shower now!


Great work. So cute. Green is my fav color!

Mary @ Giving Up on Perfect

I love this idea!! SO. CUTE. And now all I can think is, "Who do I know having a baby, and how can I work myself into the shower planning committee?" :)


Yes those are Lemon Lime Jelly Bellies!

Kendall @ Entertaining Life

I love the green and orange play! But I have outlawed paper plates, cups, and napkins in favor of melamine and bamboo for outdoors, better for the planet and after multiple uses less expensive.
