My Baby Shower – Decor and Details

My Baby Shower - Decor and Details angela lanter hello gorgeous

I’m so excited to share this post with y’all!  In case you missed it, earlier this month I shared what I wore to my Ohio baby shower in this post.  The shower was hosted at the Sheraton in Cuyahoga Falls, in the room overlooking the river.  I’m sharing the shower and all the fun details with you in today’s post.  This week on Hello Bump Podcast, Matt and I chatted about our trip home to Ohio and the shower…  But now, I get to actually show you how everything turned out.

First up, and let’s be honest, most importantly, is desserts.  The desserts and dessert table were adorable.

My mom and cousin Mindy made these darling white and pink wreaths that you see above.  If you look closely, the details are so cute.  The wreath on the far left has a rocking horse and the wreath on the far right has a tiny white dress.  Don’t miss the white pumpkins with pink tutus ad rose gold pumpkins along the ledge as well.

My mom and cousin repurposed this changing table as the welcome sign at the entrance of the shower.  I love that they found a Hello Gorgeous pillow.

The gold pumpkin on the top shelf was our guestbook.  Guests signed in with a white marker, so cute!

The pom poms on the middle shelf were all over the shower and so cute.  The tissue paper pom poms were from Paper White Designs.

On the bottom shelf, the white blanket was mine as a baby and was knitted by my mom’s best friend’s (my  Mama Jean) grandmother.  Don’t you love the Hello Bump sign?!  Under the sign is a stack of my favorite books as a little girl.

I loved this little corner.  My mom and cousin Mindy made these pumpkins: UGA for daddy, the glam pumpkin (hello pink lashes) with a baby pink pumpkin in the belly for me and even a Soka pumpkin too!

Along the other wall was a clothesline of baby girl clothes from one of my favorite brands, Little Me.

My Aunt Patty made these cute Welcome napkin holders paired with gold straws for each place setting.

Last but not least, the favors.  Essie nail polish is hands down my favorite polish brand, so of course I’m going to pass down my pink polish love to my little girl.  Loved the personal touch of the Essie pink polishes with the “Tickled Pink” tags made also by my Aunt Patty.

Aren’t all the details and special touches so perfect?  The shower couldn’t have been more perfect.  I loved the pink, white and gold, “our little pumpkin” theme.  Everything was so pretty and feminine and special.  The amount of thought and time that everyone put into the shower was evident in all of the pretty little details.  A huge thank you to my mom, cousin Mindy, Aunt Gina, mother-in-law, cousin Jen and more who all pitched in to make this day of celebration so beautiful and full of love.  I hope  you enjoyed this peek into our special day.

Dining Room Reveal & Thanksgiving Tablescape

My first home tour on Hello Gorgeous was back in 2013.  I was a newlywed and a new blogger at the time.  When I look back at this old post, it’s so crazy to think of how far we’ve come in just four short years.  We now live in a different house and we’ll be a family of three before we know it.  So crazy!

I haven’t shared a tablescape post since 2013 for one simple reason…  I didn’t have a dining table.  Sounds crazy, I know.  Sometime after our first married Christmas, Hello Gorgeous began taking over our home.  We chose to forego our dining room, to have extra space for work.  We had a breakfast bar that we ate 99% of all our meals at.

I really enjoy decorating for holidays; however, practicality won out on the dining room space because of the other 11 months of the year.  Our new house has the space for a dedicated studio/office for me AND a dining room.  Cue the dancing red dress girl emofi here!

It’s been so much fun picking out new pieces for our dining room.  So without further ado, here is our dining room all decorated for Thanksgiving.  Just a head’s up, this room isn’t 100% finished yet.  We’re on the hunt for the perfect buffet and wall decor still.

We fell in love with this dining table in April while visiting 30A, but we had no way of getting it home.  I was able to track it down on Wayfair and it turned out to be the perfect piece.  We paired it with french round back chairs and upholstered end chairs from Restoration Hardware and achieved the exact look I wanted.  Once I find the perfect buffet and wall decor, I’ll show even more of the room.

I wanted to create a beautiful table setting with warm tones.  I’m always looking for a reason to use gold flatware and Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse.  I’m really happy with the way this setting turned out with the burlap ruffled placemats, scalloped charger and delicate Thankful plate.

This post is so delayed because of my centerpiece.  I wanted to create my own centerpiece that fit the room perfectly.  I love to DIY when I can, but sometimes life just doesn’t allow me to put the time into a project that I’d like to.  I decided to keep my everyday soft green runner and began decorating with these cute little white pumpkins I snagged at TJ Maxx.  I added in other pumpkins in various colors and sizes from Hobby Lobby and Homegoods along with my white wood candle holders from World Market.  Something was missing…  So, in came the fairy lights, pinecones and greenery…  Voila!  My centerpiece was complete.

How do you decorate for Thanksgiving?  We have a hybrid of Thanksgiving meets Christmas going on in our house and honestly…  I love it.  We put up our new flocked Christmas tree in the family room and it’s stunning.  I haven’t decided how to decorate it yet, so Pinterest is calling my name!  All items in my table setting are listed below.

My Baby Registry Must Haves

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Amazon. The opinions and text are all mine.

I can hardly believe that I’m already over six months pregnant. Where has the time gone?! The first trimester went by so slow, but the second has been flying by. We can’t wait for our bundle of joy to arrive.

Since I’m from Ohio, but now live in Los Angeles, I’m having two baby showers. Matt and I are preparing to head back to my hometown in Ohio to celebrate the Littlest Lanter next week at our first shower. If you have any travel suggestions for pregnancy, please leave them in the comments below.

Because I’m flying to Ohio, it made the most sense for me to register online for baby gifts. Amazon turned out to be the perfect way to register. Gifts are purchased online (directly from Amazon), then shipped directly to us, which makes the process so much easier while traveling.

The first step for this process us was cleaning out the nursery. We literally just bought all new guest room furniture in March and I hated getting rid of brand new furniture…. BUT, on to new beginnings. I love new beginnings. Having a baby is basically the ultimate new beginning. Along with that, comes excitement. Sitting here in this blank slate nursery just reminds me of the changes that are about to take place and the blank canvas we have been given to create new memories. I get excited thinking about the new snuggles, morning “hellos” and other memories we will make in this room.

Items have already been rolling in for Baby Lanter and her presence is already being felt around the house. In the photo above, you can see that we already have a BabyZen Yoyo+ Stroller, 4Moms Breeze Play Yard, High Chair and mamaRoo Infant Seat, which are all available for purchase on Amazon.

Second step to this process was sitting down and making a list of what I would need in my new every day life with a baby. I decided to create my list based off of these categories:

  • Feeding
  • Diapering
  • Clothing
  • Sleeping
  • Furniture
  • Travel
  • Health
  • Toys

After I had my categories, it was time to get to shopping. I began by searching through the Baby category on Amazon and reviewed the most popular items. Next, I shopped category by category, building my registry as I went. I tried to think very practically about what I would use on an every day basis as a new mom. I thought about everything from car seat protectors (to protect your leather) to pacifiers and teething toys.

After I finished, I sent my registry to my best friend, who’s a mom to 4, to review. Her feedback? Diapers, diapers, DIAPERS lol.

The baby registry process with Amazon was easy, painless and best of all… I never had to leave my sofa. I quickly put together a registry that was easily searchable by my shower guests and simple to purchase from, especially if you’re already an Amazon Prime member.
