A few months ago, I had the honor of throwing a baby shower for this fit momma-to-be, and it was clear that I needed to incorporate this huge part of her life into the celebration of her first child. After a lot of brainstorming and many failed attempts at locating baby-running-shoe décor, I decided upon a “Bibs and Bows” theme, playing on the racing-bib/baby-bib homonym with a bit of little girl flair.
My first task was choosing invitations, which were extremely difficult to find but proved to be the key in creating the rest of the décor. After numerous failed search terms (surprisingly, “baby shower running bib bow invitations” doesn't pull up many results), I finally discovered a great starting point: running bib birthday invites. Thankfully, the Etsy shop owner was willing to customize, so we tweaked a few words, reworked the bottom motif, and added some color (I went with coral and gray to incorporate Josie’s nursery colors).
