Celebrating Birthdays with Garlands and Paper Chains + 15% off all baby + kids at Minted

Even though there's a month left of summer vacation, I'm still struggling with a work routine and getting my to-do list completed each day. Hence why this post is one day late. But, I'm ok with that because I've been having fun playing with my girls outside in the morning as the weather has been wonderful lately. We're taking advantage of it while we can.

{The Bachelor} Jason + Molly Mesnick's Baby Shower

Today we are delighted to share with you a special Baby Shower given in honor of The Bachelor - Season 13 couple Jason and Molly Mesnick. Since they are keeping the baby's gender a surprise, a color palette of green, yellow, grey and white was used, along with the Animals Born Free party decor collection from Minted. Jenny Keller from Jenny Cookies created a delicious dessert table complete with cake, cupcakes, sugar cookies, cake pops and more - all while incorporating the event colors into the icing and shaping the cookies into animals to match the party theme. With Minted’s matching table confetti, Jenny made a paper bunting to hang across the vintage windows of the dessert table and a matching "mini" one for the top of the cake. I simply love how everything came together to create a sweet event that would also be perfect for a gender reveal party.

Isn't she gorgeous? Molly picked this perfect Tibi dress on sale at Shop It To Me.

For fancy favors, attendees received a pretty Hanky Panky panty box from True & Co.

Guests received a to-go box of Jenny Cookies, that included cake pops, cupcakes and cookies. Each guest also made their own candy bag to take home as a special treat.
