A Colorful Vintage Baby Shower

If you follow me on instagram @zahra_sandberg, you know that I hosted a baby shower for my dear friend Renee recently at my house – with lots of help from friends, especially Melissa, Amanda, and Carolyn. 

Renee is also one half of My Menuista, the Marketing and Design company that I hired to do my blog design! It helped a ton to have the creative brain behind My Menuista, Amanda, collaborating with me to design baby shower invites, banners, and coordinating labels for games for the shower. 

 Here are just a few of the pictures from the party! Details on food and games below. Enjoy!

Make your own onesie that the baby will actually wear by buying cute iron-on decals 
We framed prints with the names of the game matching the invites – will have to remember to reuse in the future!
I seriously spared these girls by posting this ‘before’ the game picture! You are welcome ladies!
Adam is in cake pop heaven right now 
And I was left with these gorgeous flowers all to myself, lucky me! 
We had cake pops by Pops by Kristina which were amazing. The lunch menu consisted of Cheesy Italian (turkey) bacon pieBaked Macaroni and Cheese Cupcakes, Bruschetta chicken wraps, Smoked salmon and capers crackers, hummus and pita chips, and fruit. 

I found some great ideas from this website for baby shower games. We had so much fun, hope you enjoyed the recap!

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
