{MILKaholic} Baby Shower

Using an array of patterns like swiss dots and cow print, plus a basic black and white palette accented with pops of bright lime green, this non-traditional and oh-so-modern baby shower came to life!


Every detail was perfect… from the clean, modern style to the amazing mini desserts (made by the hostess herself!), the super cute cheese flower sandwich pops, the delicious assortment of brownies and cow pats, all of the paper details… and let’s not forget about the gorgeous hanging flower pomanders. This has got to be one of my favourite baby showers yet!


PARTY DETAILS, as told byKim


’MILKaholic’ seems fitting for a Baby Shower considering how much time a newborn spends eating! That meant baby bottles, milk and cow print.  Yes, cow print!  The colour scheme was black and white with pops of lime green.  Polka-dots and cow print patterns were used throughout to add a fresh and modern feel.


The invitation set the tone for the party decor.  Fun and modern yet baby themed was the intent. The MILKaholic baby bottle became a logo that was used throughout the party.  


I wanted to keep the decor more modern and less traditional ‘baby’. To create a unique backdrop for the dessert table, I made hanging paper garlands using some of the customised party circles, milk bottles and labels from Dindindies. I also positioned 3 shepherd crooks and hung gorgeous flower pomanders to just add that finishing touch. Milk bottle BABY bunting was hung in the front of the table.  Mini jars were filled with cheese cake and labelled with some of the cow print party circles. The bottles were positioned along the front of the table in row for additional decoration.  


I wanted to provide an array of miniature desserts and nibbles so that guests could sample several different items.  Delicious chocolate cupcakes with marshmallow frosting were the centre of attention with the personalised MILKaholic cupcake wrappers in co-ordinating colours. Little chocolate brownies and chocolate ‘cow pats’ were amoungst the yummy-ness.  I also made adorable little cheese flower sandwich pops that I displayed in a glass jar filled with lime green crystals and keeping with the colour palette, I made some cucumber sandwiches as well.


Guests were given a small lime green or black box filled with chocolates to take home. The chocolates were sealed with patterned customised labels, placed in the box and wrapped with co-ordinating ribbon.
