My Sisters Colorful Mexican Inspired Baby Shower!

5th May 2014

My sisters baby shower was inspired by her love for our traditional festive Mexican parties. From the beginning she told me she wanted to make sure she opened her gifts on a traditional baby shower chair, you know those old school wicker ones that are dressed to the nines in tulle, ribbons, and bows? I knew where her mind was going but I had to make sure it was all done in good taste of course!

While I didn’t quite use the standard “fiesta” decorations found in party supply stores, I made sure we kept it authentically true to our culture. We used bright and colorful handmade decorations you’ll easily find in Tijuana. Handmade tissue paper flowers, papel picado banners, fringe piñatas, talavera piggy banks, these were all beautiful decorations we used to dress up the tables and room. We modge podged and gold glittered empty Modelo beer bottle (thanks to the boys at our family parties) and used them as vases for the handmade tissue paper flowers we crafted. We also took mini donkey piñatas and spray painted them gold and embellished them with tissue paper flowers and a pink bow!

Our most favorite part of the shower was the bright and colorful dessert table! (my absolute FAVORITE dessert table yet!) It was quite the stunner! It was filled with so many amazing details, desserts, and Mexican candy that I gave it it’s own blog post. Check it out here.

The amazingly beautiful floral backdrop was handmade by Tania Fisher of Tania Fisher Design, who also designed the baby shower invitations and printables.

I loved seeing my sister so happy at her baby shower. She looked especially beautiful wearing the colorful fabric floral crown she wore at her maternity shoot and rocking her cute exposed belly, just gorgeous!
