Sweet Pea Shower


This is a good go-to theme for a baby shower—aren't all babes sweet peas? It can also be tweaked to work well for twins, aka two peas in a pod. Invitations: Search online for sweet pea-themed invitations to find your fave. We like this understated—but still whimsical—pea-in-a-pod invite from Tiny Prints. Menu: Think small bites for a sweet pea shower, like baby quiches, mini tarts, and petits fours. A green crudités platter or bowls of wasabi peas will tie in the theme's color.  Favor: Package mint, apple or green candies in decorative bags for the guests to take home.
