Croquet & Mocktails Baby Shower

Last weekend I hosted a croquet and mocktails baby shower for my co-worker Ashley and her husband Brad. Baby George is due July 20th and I am so excited to meet him! Ashley likes all things vintage and wanted to do a couples shower without "silly" baby shower games.
Guests were greeted at the door with a “welcome” banner in a grapevine wreath.
Outside I hung paper lantern balloons. I used cupcake wrappers as the balloon basket and baker’s twine for the strings. I think they came out great – vintage and simple.
I made three mocktail recipe cards with how-to instructions. Raspberry Lemonade Spritzer, Italian Soda Bar, and Nojitos (the virgin mojito and oh so delicious!).
Since Ashley didn’t want any baby shower games, I decided that an old fashioned game of croquet was in order.
Ashley and Brad had fun relaxing in the yard and opening all the adorable gifts for Baby George! 
Guests were given a paper pinwheel {Ashley made them for the shower} as a thank you favor. They were so cute and festive!
It was a nice, relaxing day for all. Congrats Ashley and Brad on the soon-to-be arrival of Baby George!
