This past weekend I had the opportunity to decorate for a poolside baby shower, the guest of honor was Minneapolis Mayoral candidate Nekima Levy-Pounds. As we all know, hosting events outside can have its challenges especially with the weather. Although it was a beautiful sunny day, there were a few issues with the wind. So I used lots of tape (and a few rocks) to secure everything in place! The expecting mother chose the colors of her sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha, which is pink and green. The shower was a success, and the guest of honor and her guests love the decorations! This was also my first time creating the life-size baby blocks, I was pretty happy with the results!
Here is the before picture of the backyard prior to me decorating.
And of course, I used my favorite paper poms for the centerpieces!
This wall of the garage was a perfect canvas to add a focal point for the baby shower.
