I am SO excited it is finally Thursday. I really need this weekend to be here for some R&R. It's over due.
Anyway, as you guys know I hosted a baby shower with my other best friend for my best friend; Lindsay. If that makes any sense. We did all the decorations for the baby shower and since she just had her baby I thought I would post about it today. :) There will be tons of pictures, so just warning ahead of time.
These are the center pieces we put together.
We hand made the owls.
The three of us put together different gift baskets to give away.
Baking basket, movie basket, and mine was a bath and body basket.
This is how the tables were set up.
We handmade the tissue pom poms and the Jackson sign
We played three games that we made up ourselves.
Baby Bingo, Baby Scramble, and Baby ABC
We simply used Microsoft Publisher, found an Owl picture we liked off of Google Images and used it throughout the whole theme.
We also did a Create Your Own Onesie table.
We bought all types of embellishments from Joann Fabrics for people to iron on.
We also made all types of images on Microsoft Publisher and printed them on transfer paper from Joann Fabrics. We bought puffy paint for people to write on the fabric as well.
This was the hardest because it took forever for the paint to dry, something we over looked.
But this was a HIT. Everyone loved it. It gave the guests something to do while Lindsay opened her gifts.
Snack & dessert table. We made a lot of desserts but a lot of guests decided to bring there own, which was really sweet and helpful! Which also saves money!! :)
We also made owl cupcakes.
Gifts really piled up!
At each of the seats we made up Wishes for Baby cards for guests to fill out. Then once you filled them out you would put them next to the chalk board. Lindsay said she picked up the chalk board for cheap at a yard sale and repainted the frame.
In front of each of the gift baskets we put little boxes because this was the grand prize.
You were given little slips to fill out and put your name in the box. You were given three tickets to put in whatever gift basket you wanted most.
Owls we made.
This was also made from branches from the woods and put in a pot and we made up these letters to put on the branches.
The beautiful Mommy.
It was such a successful baby shower, and I am so happy and SO proud of her.
Love you Lindsay! :)
Love you Lindsay! :)
