To make sure the mom-to-be’s baby arrived in high style, we planned a gathering that was filled with pink, pink, and more pink!

Simple tulle blossoms filled with faux peony petals hung from ribbons creating a blossomy, soft backdrop.

A bright and cheerful cardstock banner monogramed with the baby’s name in stick-on letters was fashioned with rickrack trim and rose-colored ribbon. The blossoms and banner went straight to the baby’s nursery for chic decor!

Blooming carnation topiary balls were set on cake plates. They are easy to make, budget friendly and perfect as a DIY to use at any event.

A bright and whimsical wagon design by Amanda Schlumberger was the theme throughout the party and featured printed stickers adorning the jars of candy and the punch. Given the mom-to-be’s sweet tooth, we thought a candy bar would be so much fun! Here, clear glass vessels collected over the years were used to hold the candies. Wagon-adorned stickers with ribbons made perfect labels.

The sweets were by far so pretty and so delicious! Exquisite petal cupcakes were ordered from Georgetown Cupcake. When planning a party for a crowd, you can’t do it all, so go to the experts!

The gorgeous pink ruffle cake was made by my friend and baker extraordinaire, Annie O’Connor. The filling was a raspberry crème and was delicious!

“Porter Punch,” named after the baby Porter, was a huge hit. The pink-toned libation (made with rose Champagne, St. Germain liqueur, sparkling pink lemonade and passion fruit nectar) was light and refreshing. Set on a bed of pink tulle with a backdrop of pink blooming branches, it made for a festive bar! For the non-imbibers and little people at the party, sparkling pink lemonade served in a drink dispenser, with a side of pretty striped straws, gave these mocktails a sweet finish.

The main gift was a pink “Porter wagon” and it made a big impression when I wheeled it out! Porter’s nameplate painted with some whimsical pink roses — and finished with pink ribbon — was an easy DIY that added a long-lasting personal touch.
