I have thrown about a million showers in my lifetime and I have to admit that this is the very first shower that I didn't purchase a single living flower for. Not one. This time I decided to make them all out of tissue paper. There were tissue paper flowers all over the place....hanging from the ceiling, in vases on the mantel and on the tables, on the mailbox outside....I think it turned out beautiful and special and unique.
The flowers outside got blown around a good bit by the wind but I still think they were pretty. The garland was made from felt and twine.
Fun favors for all of the guests to take home. We filled mason jars with the yummy Oreo Truffles that Spencer is wildly famous for providing at all of my office functions. These labels are available for download right here.
I LOVE this garland...made out of felt and twine. I might have been the only person that thought it was adorable..... but it wouldn't be the first time.
Guests were able to choose pieces of clothing from the clothesline to decorate. It was functional and completely adorable as decor. I mounted photos on felt that Jana (the mom-to-be) provided of her and her husband as babies.
The labels that I designed for the drinks and jellies are available for download right here.
I'm not a fan of baby shower games but this one was so much fun...and hilarious, at the mom-to-be's expense. (don't hate me Jana!)
The onesie decorating table was covered with different color fabrics and pieces of brown kraft paper. (I got a huge roll of it from Home Depot...I use that stuff for everything)
The onsie decorating results were so cool. I loved seeing which supplies each person was naturally drawn to and what they chose to do. It really was so much fun.
Thank you Jana for allowing me to be part of such a special occasion! I can't wait to meet little Drew....not too much longer!
