Shake, Rattle and Roll Baby Shower by Jenny from Bloom Designs Online

Jenny Raulli for Bloom Designs Online was so excited
 and honored to plan and host a baby shower for my sister, Nicole, who is
 having her first baby. As told by the lovely Jenny:  Nicole came up with the theme of the party, Shake,
 Rattle and Roll and I created the images to fit each of the words in the
 theme- a bottle, rattle and carriage. I tried to use the shake, rattle and
 roll idea in all parts of the party. We settled on an icy blue, silver and
white color scheme. Since Nicole is the writer of a fashion blog, I wanted
the shower to be feminine, sophisticated and modern just like her fashion
tastes.  See below for more details

DECORATIONS Lots of 36 inch white balloons tied with silver and
blue tassels, which I made out of ribbons and a metallic fringe door
curtain found at Party City, framed the yard. Under the welcome sign was a
bench with shake, rattle and roll pillows made by our mom. This is where
the guest posed for pictures with the Nicole. The shower was set to be
outside but real showers made lots of last minute adjustments necessary.
DRINKS We used Nicole’s changing table to create the “bottles” station
 station where guests could pick from a variety of sparkling waters, Ready
make to Pop Soda, champagne and lemonade. Wine glasses had mini charms tied on
with bakers twine. Rock candy sticks with mini pacifiers that had been
 spray-painted silver complimented the champagne glasses and all water
bottles and soda bottle were personalized. A Bottle Bucket was also filled
with additional drinks. 
LUNCH The cravings table was filled with all
 of Nicole’s favorite things. Guest dined on baby sandwiches, brussel
sprout, roasted beet, couscous and dried berries or cornucopia salads,
fresh fruit and a veggie frittata.
SWEET TREATS For the dessert table, I
enlarged the images from the invitation and mounted them in silver frames.
The centerpiece was a banana cake, the mommy-to-be’s favorite, decorated
in a chevron pattern to match the printables. Of course, we had shakes,
 rattles (cake pops) and rolls (cupcakes which were gluten free for some
 guests). For the shake bottles, I used my Cameo Silhouette machine to cut
 vinyl decals. Other sweet treats included shake, rattle and roll sugar
 cookies custom made by Lizy B. Bakes, white chocolate mousse in mini baby
food jars and boy oh boy chocolate bars. We also had a candy station with
blue and white gumballs layered in a chevron pattern (inspired by Paiges
of Style), sixlets, taffy, yogurt pretzels, blue and white star
marshmallows, and sour patch kids (the mommy to be’s favorite) in mini
bitty bags sealed with mini clothespins. Guests were given midnight
feeding boxes to fill with treats. 
ACTIVITIES As the guests arrived, they
were asked to sign a baby book for the baby. They also added a suggestion
for the parents to be to the name wreath. At each place setting was a card
asking the guest to “rattle of some advice for the mommy and baby to
 be.  

FAVORS Friends took home boxes of mini chocolate kisses with shake,
rattle and roll stickers on the bottom and tags thanking them for rolling
 by. The printables were all created in the soft icy blue, white and silver
color scheme with chevron and mini dots patterns. All party printables
including invitation, banner, food labels, activity signs, water bottles
 and more are available in my store
