This is my "baby" sign straight from Martha Stewart's website. She actually had it say "Bebe" but I thought it would be cute this way. Also, side note here, we did not know the baby girl's name at this point or I would have made it say her name. I used floral wire to shape the letters. Then I wrapped the floral wire with floral tape. I added some pink flowers throughout the letters and hung with brown ribbon.
A great trick for a pink and brown baby shower is to find pink food (strawberry wafers, strawberry marshmallows, etc.) and dip them in chocolate. You have instant pink and brown party food.
Of course I had to print off a menu and frame it. Very easy to do, but gives that finishing touch. Behind the menu I have strawberry marshmallows dipped in chocolate and white eatable pearls. Then I used clear treat bags to wrap each marshmallow and topped it off with a cute brown ribbon. Those were placed in a small mason jar and finished off with a "baby" and pink ribbon.
The left drink holder is sweet tea (a must, always!) and the right drink holder is cherry limeade. So easy to make! I used two 2 litter bottles of diet sprite. You can use regular sprite but I just always use diet to cut down on the calories. You will see why in a moment. Then I bought a jar of Maraschino cherries which is basically the cocktail cherry. I poured all the liquid from the jar into the sprite and stirred. The diet sprite hopefully made up for all the cherry flavoring which is full of sugar. Then I sliced some limes and floated them on top.
