My Baby Shower Inspiration

YAY! I can't believe it's almost that time to have a baby shower. Since I'm living in London for the year my shower is not a surprise and Ive helped out where I can.  Most of you know by now that Im having a baby boy and Alki and I have decided to name him Nikola aka Niko after my father since Alki's first son is already named after his father- Andrew.
Im very into the whole "baby" theme. I love all baby colors, baby blues, creams, lambs, bears etc. To me, you dont have the baby stage forever, and from what I hear it goes rather quickly, so I want him to be baby before he is anything else.
I was very specific about how I wanted my baby shower invites, so I did some research and found this lady who makes all different kinds of invites, thank you cards and so on, all by hand. I sent her an email with my idea and for $20.00 she made my custom sample. I didnt love the first so I wrote her back with some changes and she made them without hesitation and together we came up with my dream baby shower invite.

My custom Diaper inspired baby shower invitation with a crown on the front and Niko's name printed on it.
" A Little Prince is on the way!"

My invites were custom made by - HandMade By Odette LLC at .
Odette makes truly AMAZING invitations, I will forever use her for special events. The quality is amazing and her company is such a gem!! Check out her blog and view all her different invites and all the things she has made.
My invites came in matching blue envelopes and Odette printed all of my guests addressed with the same ink color and font as my name from inside the invitation. It was important for me that everything matched and Odette nailed that completely.

For my shower my mom decided for my centerpieces she wanted us to make diaper cakes.  She went to Costco and bought a huge box of real diapers and then we went to Michaels craft store and bought fake flowers and all kinds of different ribbon. While I was in NY visiting my family and friends, my mom and I spent one afternoon making our cakes. I decided I wanted mine to be a rubber duck diaper cake while my mom chose to do more floral cakes. This was such a  fun project to do together and gave us the crafty, creative fix we both needed.

Baby Shower Inspiration:
Obviously in Boy colors. But I love this diaper cake.

I Love the crown on top of this diaper cake.

When I'm back in London Ill take pictures of Niko's nursery as it gets closer to being done and do a post on where everything is from.
