You can find inspiration almost anywhere. My inspiration for this baby shower came from a quote that I saw on a card - "Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart." - Winnie-the-Pooh. I filed that little nugget away in the "Let's use that at some point for a party" part of my brain. And when my friend found out she was pregnant I knew I had my shot.
It was a simple baby shower - but aren't those the best kind? Since she was having a boy, I knew the colors of my living room would already serve as an appropriate background. I purchased a set of Classic Pooh characters from eBay and set off making the centerpieces with inexpensive baskets and silk flowers. I also purchased a couple of bee hive shaped honey jars from a discount store and placed those around. I wanted the shower to have masculine colors but with a feminine touch for the mommy.
The party favors were labeled with a tag that read "The _______________ household is growing by two feet" and had a picture of little baby feet on it.
