Showered With LOVE – In Chicago

May 01, 2016

I can’t believe both baby showers are over.  We received so many beautiful gifts from all of our loved ones.  It’s been such a fun pregnancy… who needs a cocktail on this high!  I might after giving birth, yes.  Here are the photos from my baby shower I shared with my then pregnant sister, Lauren who just had her precious baby boy.

The details here are all DIY ideas.  My sisters and cousins put together this stunning space right in my cousins home.  They rented the gold chiavari chairs, but crafted the rest.  Enjoy scrolling through this bohemian themed day!  xX, Gina

Painted on chalkboard wall.  Find a friend who does calligraphy or has bomb writing.  Or if you’re interested in the work you see I can refer you via email. (she handled all of my wedding signs and envelopes too!)

My little sister made this big dreamcatcher, which is everything!  I’m planning to hang it in my nursery.  A hula hoop and ribbon was all it took.


The cutest favors and my favorite, succulents.  Spray painted gold planters complete the look.

Stunning.  Invest in charger plates and you’ll always add to your table.  Florals are a must and you don’t have to spend on a florist.  My sisters did these blooms themselves with pops of desert feel succulents. Yep, you can find succulents in non-desert places.

Tee pee and fur chairs from Hobby Lobby!  Added greenery makes it so dreamy…

Books instead of cards are always a good idea to have on your invitation.
