The Frosted Petticoat

Food & drinks with a dash of whimsy!

The Farmer’s Baby

February 17, 2012
Spring is just around the corner and with it comes flowers, sunshine, and… BABIES!  Yup, it’s baby season my friends and that can only mean one thing – baby showers!!!  Woohoo!  So, let’s kick off the season right with a shower design request from one of our Frosted Moms-to-Be:

Dear FP,
I love everything that represents middle-America and want my baby shower to be farm/rustic themed.  However, when I tell everyone this they automatically assume I want it to be a farm-animal party.  I don’t want my party to be a Old McDonald cliche, but I’m in a design rutt and don’t know where to go with it.  Any suggestions?

Well Betsy, if you ask me the possibilites are endless!  But in order to narrow down the design choices, we say out with the animals and in with all things pastel & shabby chic:

Mixing multi-colored pastels with complimentary floral textures will give the party that overall “Home Sweet Farm” feel.  Also adding good old American staples like bundt cake and blueberry pie pops will be sure to leave the sheep in the pasture & the yums in your guests’ tummies!
