Baby Shower Photos!
Thank you all so much for your wonderful ideas for the baby shower. It's done! Everything went wonderfully, we had such a great time, and I couldn't have done it without all of your wonderful suggestions, so thank you!
I don't remember who's ideas I borrowed exactly, it was kind of a whirlwind, but I did decide to go with the "feather her nest" theme!
And the Martha Poms definitely made it to the party. (how have I never tried those before?? So easy!)
And the word garlands! So fun!
I made some "birdie nest" cupcakes (also Martha's idea) to go along with the "feather her nest" theme. They were so delicious, I think I ate 4 of them....
And I was up until 1am last night (er, this morning?) hand-stitching these little favors;
They were little nest inspired flower brooches with "eggs" (pearls) in the center. I didn't get a very good picture of them, but they were pretty!
With note cards made from blue card stock that I had on hand, stamped with little boyish sayings, and tied with brown satin ribbons.
I think presents are a decoration in themselves! I love all that pretty packaging!
One of the things I gave our guest of honor was this little t-shirt that I did a reverse applique of a skateboard (her husband is really into skateboarding!)on.....but I guess I used the wrong picture as a guide, because it kind of looks like a salamander to me. Oh well! It gave me and my husband something to laugh about all day :o)
I also gave her a necklace which I got from a wonderful jewelry designer online, but it will get it's own special post soon.
The greatest part was that I had everything on hand, so the only money I spent on the shower was on the ingredients for the cupcakes! Wonderful!
And now I'm going to take a beautiful, lovely nap.
Thanks again for saving the day with all of your ideas guys! You're the best!!
Oh, it turned out great! Such wonderful ideas - I'll have to save this one for later! ;)ReplyDelete
I love the theme that you chose!ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful! I especially love the note tree. Isn't great when everything comes together the way the shower did? No doubt having everything on hand made life a lot easier. Enjoy your nap :)ReplyDelete
It looks fantastic! Great job for coming up with something on the fly... and at a great cost! ;)ReplyDelete
good job! everything looks so great! i'd never guess that your budget was zero.ReplyDelete
I love love love your blog. Thank you for sharing your ideas. The shower was lovely! Your readers posted some super ideas.
lol POMS! That's what I meant when I said, "tissue paper thingies!" I'm such a goober. The shower decorations look divine! (nice POMS, btw!) I especially love the bird's nest cupcakes!ReplyDelete
Ok, I'm such a dork...but I'm super happy the word garland I suggested worked out!!! Cannot wait to whip one up for myself next month :-)ReplyDelete
Everything looks divine! Perfect!ReplyDelete
holy cow woman!! That is an AMAZING shower for "thrown together"! And the fact that it looks super high class (like a pottery barn baby shower, if you could buy them there!) but you spent NO money on it?! That makes you my hero. You totally rock. Can I be you when I grow up?ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful Disney! I love the word garlands, the favors, and the little branches... Nice work!ReplyDelete
I would have been up until 4 AM doing all that. Great job!
Wow! You pulled together an amazing shower in such a limited amount of time. Great job.ReplyDelete
Happy everything came together so well! It was a team event ;~DReplyDelete
You and blogland....

Adorable! Great ideas for the decoration, it sounds like it was fun! I love the cupcakes as well :)ReplyDelete
Wow. I am so super impressed by how you pulled it all together and made it look beautiful! Especially with just buying cupcake ingredients. Thank heaven for bloggers and their wonderful sharing of iddeas.ReplyDelete
I can't believe you threw this together in 2 days! WOW!ReplyDelete
Great job-love the broches and the "weed". :)
This is gorgeous. Almost makes me want to have another baby and copy it. ;)ReplyDelete
It all came together beautifully!ReplyDelete

What a beautiful shower. You are amazing.ReplyDelete
Such a great idea! All of it! Totally using this for my next shower I do! -KelseeReplyDelete
So fabulous!! Did Jenna enjoy herself at the shower? I hope that when I have a baby I have someone as creative and caring as you on shower duty!ReplyDelete
Wow Disney! You just did such a good job!!!!ReplyDelete
Can you come over (to Spais) to help me host one this summer?? Hahaha!
You are sooo imaginative!
Can I ask you a little question??? How did you attach all the feathers together and them add the tulle and the pearl? Did you use a cardstcok or a metal piece underneath?
I tried to do some the last summer but with colour feathers, but they kept falling out of place...
Wow - everything looked amazing. You never cease to amaze with your creativity. What a lucky friend.ReplyDelete
oh, how beautiful!! you did an amazing job!ReplyDelete
That is SOOO cute!!!ReplyDelete
I LOVE the idea!!
I was going to leave you a comment on your previous post about making those tissue paper pom-poms, but got sidetracked. It's funny that you decided to do them! (Everything looks gorgeous by the way!) We used them for a friend's baby shower...http://kirascraftylife.blogspot.com/2009/09/nancys-baby-shower.htmlReplyDelete
