I hosted a baby shower for my sister-in-law who was expecting a little girl who she planned to name Dalia. I decided make the theme based on the Dahlia flower. My first inspiration was this precious bib I found on esty.
On etsy again, I found invitations that also incorporated the dahlia theme and picked up the colors from the bib.
My sister-in-law is allergic to many flowers so I had to minimize the use of fresh flowers. I made these flower arrangements to line-up on the fireplace mantel. I took these vases with pink, turquoise, and lime green mosaic glass and cut artificial bear grass for each one. Since dahlias were not in season at the time of this shower, I found large spider mums and had my florist paint each one in a vibrant pink.
Favors were chocolates from a local candy store put in a simple white box and tied with lime green or turquoise ribbon and various shades of pink tissue paper flower.
Joanne from Brendina Designs made this beautiful diaper cake.
A display of cupcakes with pink dahlia toppers was part of the dessert display.
