Oh boy, it’s baby shower season! If you’re expecting a bundle of blue this springtime, look no further than Ms. Julie O’Brien’s recent baby shower for some inspiration! With great friends, amazing food and of course a stunning PinkBlush Maternity dress, there’s so much to love about this beautiful celebration event!
One of the best ways to capture all of your pictures during your baby shower in one central spot, and a great way to do that is with the help of a unique hashtag! These days so many baby shower guests are on Instagram, so in creating a fun, festive hashtag, everyone can browse one another’s pictures (as long as they’re public accounts) and can re-connect with new acquaintances they may have met at the party! For Julie’s baby shower, she used the themed-appropriate hashtag #OBrienTeaParty but there are so many other great ones you can choose from! Between #xshavingababy to #x’sgotabunintheoven there are many ways to create a hashtag that’s themed appropriate yet still specific enough that only your pictures from the event will show up in the feed.
Another great way to save time and money is with the addition of free printables. We loved how Julie motivated her guests to fill out their envelopes for the ‘Thank You’ cards, because let’s be real, the last thing you want to do when you’re eight or nine months pregnant is to look up everyone’s address. Not only does this give guests something to do when they first arrive, but it can gather everyone around the table to turn in their envelopes, which can create an awesome opportunity for everyone to connect. We were so inspired, we created our own, along with some other free printables as well! Feel free to download your own below, and if you’d like to see more of Julie’s pictures, make sure to visit her Instagram at @MrsJulieOBrien or on ours at @pinkblushmaternity as we’ve featured her multiple times 🙂
