I am loving this WESTERN TURQUOISE BABY SHOWER submitted by Miranda Konieczny of Whimsical Printables. The brown and aqua colors made everything so darling!Miranda said- “I was super excited when my friend Dara agreed to let me throw her a baby shower! She was really excited when I told her that I wanted to do a western themed shower and incorporate turquoise!! So I gathered up my party gals and went to town on it all. The wonderful welcome wreath came from the very talented Natalie of the The Knock-Knock Factory. She knew exactly what I wanted and captured it so well! My friend and fellow hostess, Brandi, tea stained onesies for me and I put these cute iron on’s on them! I really loved being able to hang them with the rope. I also love making diaper cakes and this one was really fun. As was setting up the tables! The “Make A Wish” station was a real hit as well. I couldn’t believe I found a horseshoe tree either! Each guest was able to write a small note for the baby and hang from the tree. The adorable cookies were made by Dandy Delights. She always makes the most perfect cookies for me! Lynlee from Lynlee’s Petite Cakes always makes my fondant toppers for me and I am blown away each time by her creativity! I decided to try out the chocolate covered Oreos I hear everyone raving about and omg, they are SOOOO good! Sweet Temptations did an amazing job on them too. Each guest got to go home with a small berry basket with a package of sunflower seeds. They also had lots to carry from the dessert table. The winners of the games each received a mason jar filled with the ingredients for “cowboy cookies”, made using a very easy and wonderful idea that I found via Bakerella.com. I was super excited to see the look on my friends face when she walked in and was even more happy that everyone enjoyed the event.” Vendors and Credits: Fondant- Lynlee’s Petite Cakes Wreath- The Knock-Knock Factory Chocolate Covered Oreos- Sweet Temptations Cookies- Dandy Delights Cake Pops- My Cake Pop Shop Berry Baskets- Pick Fair Photography- Amy Craft Photography Chalkboard Labels for jars- Embellishing Life Paper Straws- Isakay Boutique Setup, Invitation & Printables- Whimsical Printables Items used in this party that are available in Kara’s Party Ideas Shop: Berry Baskets Brown Pillow Boxes Striped Paper Straws Jumbo Polka Dot Balloons Jute Twine Clear Cello Bags Brown Paper Krinkled Shred The above berry baskets are available to purchase here.

SUCH a cute theme! I love the vintage astronaut space figures that Joanna found at a Flea Market. The red, white & blue color scheme couldn’t be more perfect, too. Who would have thought that combining cowboys and astronauts would be so darling!
