Friday Favorites- For the Love of Pink!

I have pink on the brain. I swore I would not be obsessed with pink once I found out that we were having a girl...but seriously after 6 years of blue, stripes, green, and more blue....a girl gives in! :)

I joined Pinterest and let me tell ya, that place is inspiration OVERLOAD!
I have been collecting images of ideas for the girl's baby shower.
I'm currently working on custom invitations for a party and that got me thinking of parties, which lead to baby shower planning and Noah's first birthday. Anyway, here are my favorite ideas so far:
Hello beautiful invites. I love the fact that these "save the dates" have fabric on them. I definitely will be making my invites, and will keep a very small guest list. Since it is our third baby and all....but she is the first girl on Albert's side and that makes it special! I still don't have a name...but that monogram idea is fabulous!
I loved having a candy buffet at Noah's baby shower and it was a HIT! So, I'm totally going to do it again! I also think using lace around the jars is sooo cute!

When I first saw these cupcakes my jaw dropped. How beautiful and creative! I wish I could do this. Here is the site it came from.
I think I'll test this idea before I actually convince my sister, she should bake these. lol Rosa my love.....your niece would call you her favorite once she sees that YOU made her these! lol

These rose napkins are simply delightful! They look tricky, but gorgeous!!
I think I want some fresh flower centerpieces. I think pinwheels will make them look super cute!
But then I saw this beautiful table centerpiece. ummm speechless!

I know, I'll be using lots of pink and the shower will have a vintage feel to it. I must get started on some of these beautiful ideas. Once month 7 comes around, I may have no energy.
Have you seen any more girl baby shower ideas? Please share!! If you have a Pinterest, let me know!
Also, one more thing, I need baby girl names...send me ideas. I told Albert that I loved the name "Mila" since my wonderful friend Amber suggested it, and he said, "what about Lope"? heheh funny man. I guess he's not that fond of the name.
I'll check in this weekend with some more scrapbook pages. I have attempted more. Thank you for all your kind words. :)
xoxo Veronica

Pinks My Ink said...

My blog is called Pinksmyink, my email address is pinksmyink. There is nothing better than pink! My 2 beautiful daughters can testify to that, you will enjoy all the pinky goodness of your little girl!

Oh....thanks ladies. I can not wait to start the pink-fest! :)

Amber Risher said...

I adore all of your gorgeous shower ideas!!! I wish I was there to help you plan! I got crazy shopping for two girls in Noah's class the other day! Girl stuff is so much more fun. - am sad that Albert didn't like my name :( you did tell me he was more traditional, though. I will keep hunting girly ideas and names for you, though

Candy Buffet said...

The ultimate way to set your wedding, birthday or company occasion apart is with a candy buffet. A candy buffet is both unique and delicious- it involves a touch of attractive magic and will have your guests talking about it for years to come.

♥ Love! ♥ I remember seeing that monogram & shower a couple years ago. So cute.

I LOVE that vintage-y pink one with the pinwheels and the letter 'E'. If we are having a girl, my number one pick is Emery, or Emersyn, something that I can call her "Emmie" for a nickname.

We also love the name Sawyer, but it's too close to Saylor for me.
