ONE PRICKLY PAIR // A Twin Baby Shower

Last weekend I got to help host a shower for my dear friend Juliann and her twin girls due this November.  Juls actually has two daughters (5 and 3) so she's about to have her own little girl gang!  There were six of us that made this shower come to life and I was so happy with how everything came together.  We went with a "One Prickly Pair" theme, which might be the cutest twin shower theme of all time!

I was in charge of the dessert table and making Spanish rice, two things I love to make.  I called on two of my party shop go-to's, Modern Birch Co. and Pearl and Jane for decor and was so happy with how it turned out.  All of the banners are from Pearl and Jane and the custom wood cake toppers are from Modern Birch Co.  I used the same pallets and table from the kids recent Camp Brown birthday party, but added a fun colorful blanket (that I bought in Mexico probably ten years ago-love when old things that I've hung onto come in handy!).  I made another balloon garland (they're SO easy) using this balloon strip.

Isn't Juliann glowing!!! She looked so beautiful! 

Juliann's mother in law, Jodie, made the most uhmazing prickly pear jalapeño margaritas!!

Put everything in a pitcher and mix well.  Serve over ice with lime wedges!


  1. Love!!! Would love your rice recipe too . Please share ��

    1. Put a dash of olive oil in your pan. Bring four cups of chicken broth to a boil. Add two cups of white long grain rice and about 1/3 cup tomato sauce, stir. Lower heat to a simmer and simmer for 20 minutes. I top mine with shredded cheese and roasted green chili's!

  2. So cute. I will definitely be using that margarita recipe for my daughter’s cactus themed party :) Did you add one can of the San Pellegrino to the recipe?
