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.
My pea in a pod creation. I used felt and spray painted styrofoam balls.
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.
