The Perfect Collection for Your Little Minnie Mouse

While I was writing my previous blog about my niece’s Minnie Mouse themed first birthday party, I spent a lot of time researching Minnie Mouse options for all of you in case you wanted to do something similar.

During my research, I happened upon a beautiful new collection called the Minnie Mouse Coral Flowers Gear Collection. And I’ll tell you what: If I had a baby girl, this is DEFINITELY what I would want for her! Check it out!

There's a New Sheriff in Town: Our Cowboy Baby Shower

It is quite possible that event planning may be my second calling. But considering how elaborate some events can get, I mostly keep it to my own personal celebrations–like birthdays, and as in this case, my baby shower.

I truly enjoy putting together all the details that take can take a celebration from a party to a themed event. In searching on Pinterest one night, I came across the most precious photo of a sweet newborn baby boy in the cutest little knitted cowboy boots and hat. That was all it took for me to be smitten with all things cowboy for my handsome baby boy to come. I created a pin board to draw inspiration for a cowboy themed baby shower with western touches.

Many pins sparked ideas, and I also had a few of my own. I did various DIY projects and had the help of friends and family to set up my space as I had been envisioning over the past few months.

Party planning is great for that last trimester nesting phase. I found party planning to be a very soothing process, and the end result was a beautiful cowboy-themed shower with lots of love and details.

A Circus Baby Shower

When I saw a shot from this circus baby shower designed and thrown by Brianna Webb of Collected, I immediately wanted to see all the details.

And it didn’t disappoint! Every piece of the party is darling, from the invitations down to the table decorations.

Brianna said, “I’ve been itching to throw a baby shower, so when my sister announced she was pregnant, I was thrilled.  I wanted this to be a bright and fun celebration for her, so I thought a circus shower would fit the bill. As a designer, I wanted to have some fun with all the paper pieces, so I created a full circus suite, including large black and white posters.”
