{Gender Neutral} Raindrop Baby Shower...with FREE printables

It's about that time, friends.
When all those invites for wedding showers & baby showers are flooding in :)

And since I'm all about all things baby right now I thought it was the perfect time to pull out a post I have been saving for a while.
It's the perfect spring/summer theme and it worked out great for us since it could stay gender neutral and our sweet friend wasn't finding out what she was having. 

But it would be incredibly cute amped up with blues or pinks if you want to make it go either way too. 

{All links to free prints throughout the post will be at the end of the post!!}

First off, what's a party without cute invitations? 

I made some cute yellow & blue raindrop themed invites to send out for the shower.
It would be super cute with pink font in it if you're wanting to make it more girly too. 

All links to the free printables will be at the end of this post, including these super cute blank invites!!!

For our shower, we added a comment in the invite to bring a book rather than a card so it could help add to her baby book collection. So fun! 
But if you'd rather not have that, there will be an Option A for just a regular invite. 

To welcome guests into the shower, I hung a white frame with another raindrop printable framed inside it.
I love keeping empty frames on hand to use at parties!!

The table was all glammed out in blues, yellows & whites and lots of yummy food!!

I made cute tissue poms & raindrop shapes from cardstock and hung them above the table for our 'clouds'. 

And a scrap fabric garland and a raindrop printable banner hung over the window above the table. 

I used bright yellow utensils and fun glass & white containers to hold everything. 
For a quick personalized bit of color, wrap colored ribbon around jars or bowls. 

I love my striped chalkboard sign I made forever ago and used chipboard letters to trace around to add 'Drip Drop Delights' to it to signify the food table.

And of course, I pulled out my DIY wooden cupcake towers for yet another fun party! 
I love these things and use them all. the. time.

I found cute white ruffled cupcake liners at Michaels and made my own cupcake toppers with prints I made. 
(Don't worry, those free printables are at the end of the post too!!) 

One of my favorite things was coming up with fun names for the food :) 
I love cute food labels if you couldn't tell from my superhero party

I designed and printed out fun food labels after trying to come up with some 'raindrop-themed' food. 
It was a group effort, guys :) 
But we finally came up with some good ones!

For some healthy choices, we used broccoli & carrots as 'chilly treats'. 
Iced sugar cookies became 'sugar puddles'
Small sandwiches were 'cloud bites' 
and fruit salad became 'rainbow tidbits'. 
We also made yummy lemonade and named it 'sippin' sunshine'. 

And of course we had the cupcakes and some yellow lemon heads on the table too.

And all the girls...

I love how everything turned out!!
Sweet & simple and ready to celebrate a sweet new baby :) 

Now onto the other awesome part....

You know you were dying for them!!!

W  E  L  C  O  M  
(don't forget to print two e's and two b's!)
Just print the letters on cardstock, cut out and then use a hole punch or hot glue to attach to twine, ribbon,etc. 

Printable Cupcake Toppers
{click links below to download}

Print one or both designs.
My printer automatically allows me to print multiple photos a sheet and I choose the wallet size and make sure the 'fit to page' box in unchecked. These make the perfect sized squares for the toppers.
If your printer doesn't automatically print multiple per page, insert the image into microsoft word and copy/paste the image until a page is filled. You can also drag the picture to size it however big you want. Then print :) 

After printed, cut the squares out and then adhere to lollipop/candy sticks with hot glue. 
I get mine at Hobby Lobby in the party section.

Printable Invitations

I typically print invites as 5x7's on cardstock. 
Print, cut with a straight-edge and then round the corners with a corner rounder punch. 
Throw them in a blank white envelope (I get 100 packs of these at Office Depot) and add washi tape in a fun a color or just doodle the name on front :)
