So my dear friend is having a baby and I wanted to throw her a small shower. She liked the idea of a raspberry pink and aqua for colors. I was so happy because every store I went to had raspberry pink and aqua everywhere. Must be in season right now or something. I thought it would be neat to give the shower a “shower” theme. I did pom poms with raindrops coming down onto pink parasols.  I purchased the quilted mason jars and paired them with striped paper straws. We did a fun craft at the party where we decorated onesies for the mommy to be and baby. My friend said she was going to string them up on a clothes line with clothes pins in the nursery. Super cute. I absolutely LOVE throwing any kind of party. It was nice because I got to focus only on the decor while my friend’s family did the food. So I didn’t get overwhelmed at all. It was such a great team effort and so fun to throw a party for my sweet friend.
