When I found out my good friend Emily Hewett from A Well Dressed Home was expecting twins AND that she was having a boy and girl, I knew I had to do something extra special for her shower. It ended up that I not only had the privilege of designing all of the paper goods, but was also one of the hostesses and held the shower at my house too! It truly was a fun day filled with beautiful details and lovely people.
I wanted the invitation to really set the stage for our “Perfect Pair” theme, which was inspired by the lil’ twins themselves. A palette of dusty pink, grey and turquoise and the modern houndstooth pattern continued through to the signage and other paper goods for the event.
And as before any special occasion, I made a trip to LaurieAnna’s Vintage Home in Canton and selected a handful of beautiful dishes and decorative accessories to use at the shower. LOVE.
Congratulations Emily and thank you to the other hostesses for all of your help! Enjoy!
Over 75 baby booties! Grey with brown buttons for the boy and pale pink with a pink bow and button for the lil’ girl.
The invitation was boxed and wrapped with a turquoise ribbon and 2 tags
Each invitation was lined with grey striped tissue paper and included a pair of houndstooth baby booties!
Corresponding wrap around address labels to match. Super chic.
Our main table was filled with all sorts of pretties- the invitation, pairs of baby booties of course, oversized
tissue paper flowers and mercury glassware of all shapes and sizes.
Mercury glass hourglasses from LaurieAnna’s Vintage Home were the perfect touch.
When we added a ribbon and turned them on their side, they looked like rattles!
Pretty candy for guests of course!
To go candy bags with houndstooth tags matching the invitations. Pink and grey striped straws were used for the lemon
water and peach sangria which were served in small mason jars!
Vintage porcelain baby booties decorated the tables throughout and brought the theme to life.
Fruit cups galore! The galvanized tray from LaurieAnna’s was the perfect serving piece for these yummies!
The flowers arrangements consisted of blush roses, blue hydrangeas, cream roses and grey dusty miller leaves.
The cake was made by The Cake Stand in Mckinney, Texas. They did an
amazing job of creating a design to match the invitation.
The food served was an assortment of Emily’s most craved bits and bites during her pregnancy.

We asked guests to bring a children’s book instead of a card to the shower. Such a cute idea!!
Wishing trees tags filled with words of wisdom and well wishes for the new parents.
A great keepsake for the baby book.
