These bow tie napkins were the inspiration for my most recent baby shower theme. As we celebrate the life of a brand new boy to our world, we find fun ways to make the new mom feel special.
The colors for this boy baby shower were dark blue, white and grocery bag. Is “grocery bag: really a color? It is now. The bow tie napkins were a great way to present the cute wooden utensils. It also helped with the visual components of the place settings.
