Rock-A-Bye Baby Shower: Baby Brixton

My bestie is having a baby!!!  YUP!! A real life, rosy cheeked, soft skinned baby boy!! You might remember she's the photographer that's done all my Christmas card pictures {here and here} and my maternity session {here} Well, now she's having her own baby and I am SO excited.  She's due in less than a month.  Ironically, it's almost exactly one year to the day that I gave birth to my son.  Thus, it's a given that our little guys will be best friends, just like their mommies!

When we started planning Jennifer's shower she kept saying, "I don't want a theme!  I don't want anything too "baby" in the shower! I want it to be a cool shower."  But being the "party-passionate" girl that I am, I knew immediately that having no theme is just plain IMPOSSIBLE.  Even if you have a color scheme, the theme is still the colors.....and eventually, you end up adding some baby elements to make it just the right amount of "baby" for the mom-to-be.  In Jennifer's case, she quickly realized she loved the Rock & Roll themed baby shower idea.  It was cool, hip and not at all your typical baby shower theme.  she must have had a crazy pregnancy dream with teddy bears, sheep and bunnies taunting her, which scared her straight out of anything remotely baby-looking. The colors she wanted were red, gray, black and white; perfect Rock & Roll colors!  After that, we "rolled" with it and everything fell into place....

  7. Any tutorial available on the record cupcake stands? We are planning our baby shower for the spring and have already picked out names based on our favorite musicians. This would be perfect for the themed shower!

  8. Love the black and red theme. Tasteful but rockin'! Just went to a similar themed friend's shower and they gave out ROCKABET picture books to each family attending. Cute baby gift too! http://www.amazon.com/Rockabet-Classic-Kelly-Polark/dp/0988846209/ref=sr_1_1_twi_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1423954680&sr=8-1&keywords=rockabet

  9. They decided not to find out the sex of their baby, so we wanted to have a gender neutral theme for the shower. I had noticed that the mom-to-be had favorited many owl-related baby and nursery items on Etsy so that seemed like it would be the perfect theme! bestshowerheads
