It was great seeing all my family and friends. My little niece brought her beautiful baby daughter. She reminds me so much of a pixie doll. She is just so adorable! Those big 'o eyes!!
I wanted to share those special touches I did for the shower since I worked so hard on them and maybe someone else will want to try them for a future baby shower they may have.
I made a bird mobile. I got the templates from Martha Stewart and printed them on scrapbook paper and cut them out and stamped them. They did turn out very cute but were more work than I thought they would be! Brandi asked me if she could have them so that made it all worth it! I also had taken a few photos and printed them on computer cloth and then sewed them to some of the onsies. I decorated the living room with the baby onsies, like a clothes line. Everyone really liked that! I even had a photo of Valentine on a onsie! I also took the Bess Truman Pudding recipe from my earlier post and multiplied it times 7 and made individual servings! I miscalculated how much to fill each cup and all of them overflowed into my oven! What a sugary mess that was!! (fortunately, it wiped right up while it was still hot) What was left in the cups still tasted good. I found some silicone bear cupcake holders and those worked great for the individual serving dishes and they were cheap too. Since Brandi is suppose to be having a boy, I found these candy coated chocolate chips and they made a perfect decoration. They are all in primary colors and look like little game pieces to me! I also found some individually wrapped "it's a boy" mints and put them into a pretty light blue glass container. She took that home as well. :)
On another note I got the most darling little purse from Karri from the Daily Be. It really made my week! Look at the cute little tag with her Etsy store name! I love it! Thank you Karri!
