Party Planning: The perfect girly favor

Today’s post features one of my most favorite favors from a baby shower I planned with my co-workers for our dear friend, Mary.

Mary had an adorable little girl almost four years ago, Victoria Carolyn. When we were planning Mary’s shower, we knew it needed lots of pink and lots of girliness!

The favor was one of my favorite parts of the day — brown sugar scrub for everyone to take home!

I ordered these containers and added some light pink ribbon with the below poem from Baby Victoria on a cardstock tag:

The recipe was so easy. Here it is — it’s a great option for your next baby or wedding shower!

Brown Sugar Vanilla Body Scrub


1 1/2 cups light brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

1 cup olive oil

1 tbsp. vanilla extract (I love the Mexican or Madagascar Bourbon vanilla!)


Mix together in a big bowl and enjoy!

Below are a few pictures from the shower – keep in mind, it was in our board room, so we had to be creative.

I was desperately searching for more photos, but came up empty – it was such a fun day spent with a great group of ladies!

Hope everyone has a happy Thursday!
