It's so funny; we spent most of 2008-2011 at wedding showers, bachelorette parties and weddings then 2012-2013 has become the year of baby showers! I love that we get to be part of so many happy memories!
Here are a few pics from the day...
|Josh actually surprised me by buying some pretty pink plants and potting them in my silver planters! They were perfect on the front steps of the house.|
|I will never make another tissue paper garland thing, I don't have the patience for ripping tissue paper and cutting all those little lines, but they do look cute while hanging!|
|pink chevron ribbon & fabric and navy ribbon & fabric from Hobby Lobby|
|for the centerpieces, I just spray-painted 3 mason jars with silver Rustoleum spray paint then tied them together with navy ribbon and made a white arrangement with pink and green accent flowers|
|I prepared too much food. pink sugar wafers dipped in chocolate, sugar cookies, crab dip, fruit salad, cheese ball, cake batter puppy chow, open-faced strawberry sandwiches & a veggie tray. Lots of leftovers!|
|I got some great pink & white straws from Ebay and just made some little flags with the whales & anchors to carry on the chevron & nautical theme|
|the Mama-to-Be, isn't she a precious little preggo?|
|Hope & some of the ladies, I have on my "I've been smiling too long face" for some reason|
|I saw a great pin on Pinterest (here) for a headband making station, so I decided I had to have one for the shower|
|gettin' crafty. (or well... waiting for the glue guns to heat up, oops!)|
All in all, we had had a great day. Baby Ella (and Hope) got some precious things and we got to see some friends we don't get to see that often!
