This past weekend, we had our baby shower, a Disney’s Up themed shower! I’ve been dreaming of it for a while and couldn’t have pulled it off without the help of my family and close friends who helped host. Here are some of the details.
I have been envisioning a vintage travel themed Up party. Since Andrew and I both love to travel, it would be the perfect theme for our baby shower. Andrew is very adventurous when he travels. Me? Let’s just say I’m the Carl in the relationship.
I put my inspiration together in this Pin Board. We rented vintage furniture and created our menu around what Carl and Ellie would have ate: meatloaf, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, green bean salad, and macaroni and cheese. The desserts consisted of banana pudding, lemon meringue tarts, and old fashioned cookies and cakes. We had popcorn giveaways that said, “she’s about to pop!” and I bought a replica of the adventure book from the movie and used it for the guestbook. We also set up a photobooth area with fun props. Lastly, I hired a balloon artist that not only made balloon animals but created monkey hats, flame throwers, and even a full-sized goose outfit that one can step into! It was amazing!
On to our next “little” adventure!
