Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower

My little sister is due with her first baby in October so this past weekend my cousin and I threw her very first baby shower. My sister is very classic so I knew early on I wanted the theme to be the same, classic and sweet. I landed on the theme Twinkle Twinkle Little Star for a few reasons, but it also reminded me of the many years the two of us shared a room growing up. We had cloud bed spreads, which we thought were the most amazing thing ever and we had those glow in the dark stars on our ceiling which we just loved as well. 
To plan a party, you obviously  need a theme, then comes the invitations. I LOVED these Twinkle Twinkle Little star baby shower invitations from Basic Invite. Basic Invite has a wide variety of invitations (and more) to choose from. I was so excited they had invitations to fit the theme of the baby shower. In fact, they had a whole page of Twinkle Twinkle Little star baby shower invitations, making my job easy.
I didn't want to go overboard with the star theme, but it was a fun and easy element to play with since as a Mom of two little ones I didn't have time to go crazy with the decorations. I made a star banner to hang on the fireplace, made some star "wands" to put in mason jars filled with Baby's breath, found a free printable and put it in a frame and let Sam's club do the cake. We also played a guess the Nursery Rhyme game and I found a Wishes for Baby on Etsy for each guest to fill out. I am going to make this into a book to give my sister.
The menu was not themed unless the theme was YUM. But I did use a star cookie cutter to make some of the fruit into stars because I just couldn't help myself.

It was so fun to be able to celebrate my sister and her new baby and to finally get some bump pictures together! Looking forward to seeing her again in less than a month for her next shower!

If you are looking for a place to order invitations, here are a few things I loved about Basic Invites:
-I loved the original invitation, but wanted to change the color palette to make the invitation more of a light blue verses a navy blue. Once you select a design it is easy to change the color of EACH element on the card. I loved this feature! 
-They will also send you custom samples if you want to check out the paper quality or actual design. -Lastly, I loved the foil element. I think a little sparkle adds a lot of interest to an invitation...especially when stars are involved. :)

Basic Invites also offers other items including professional business cards and if you are already thinking about photo cards! Right now they are offering 15% off with the code: 15FF51

*I did receive the invitations in exchange for my honest review, however all opinions are my own.

I love a good themed event - and this is such a cute idea for a baby shower! I wouldn't be able to help myself on the star cookie cutter either :)
