Classic Fairy Tale baby shower

Linsey and I threw a baby shower for our friends Emily & Charles today. We started out with a generic "pink and green" theme - then Linsey suggested a "fairy tale" theme, so we ran with it. Emily loves classic toys and vintage-y things so we skipped over the girly fairy princess stuff and stuck with the classics.

The Brother's Grimm were the main source of inspiration (Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Hansel & Gretel, Frog Prince....) with a few others mixed in. We tried to keep it simple and cheap... (I mean inexpensive... not that Emily isn't worth a million bucks cause she is - but all 3 of us are yard-sale-bargain-shoppers so we were all on the same page here haha)

Anyway - enough chatter - here are a few of the pics. (waiting on a few more from Charles)

  3. Hi Pam! My name is Carolyn and I have a blog "Get Wiser Women" I invite you to read. I'm Christian and want my blog to offer pearls of wisdom I glean from all over the place, The Bible, wise people around the world. My focus is trying to wisely navigate through life's issues, not always serious ones either. I love this fairy tale shower. Very clever and lovely. Thank you for sharing it. Carolyn

  4. So sweet. Just took a lot of your ideas for my daughter's Storyland birthday party.
