this weekend we celebrated my dear friend, erin, & the arrival of her wee one. erin is a fantastic lady friend with a serious knack for crafting up just about anything. erin sews, quilts, knits, gardens... a girl after my own heart. so when i heard she was expecting a little one, a bunch of ladies & i got together & created a shower just as sweet as she is.
the decor was a bit of this & a bit of that...mostly just things from around my home or handmade. i purchased the paper lanterns from party city & covered the bottoms with craft paper. i added fun, bright fabric to the circular looms on the wall & made the scalloped bunting from extra fabric scraps.
my sweet sister-in-law made the darling "knitting" cupcakes. i'm not much of a baker, but i know that she used pretzels covered in white chocolate for the needles. i'm sure you could find a tutorial online; this is very similar.
i purchased little brown bags from hobby lobby & filled them with bubble gum & confetti. i adorned the favors with heart-shaped doilies from valentine's day & closed the bag with a little wooden clothespin.
i was inspired by amy's birthday flags & created my own with thin, wooden dowel rods & card stock. the little chalkboard clips are from hobby lobby & are perfect for identifying those not-so-obvious party foods.
i decorated the momma-to-be's chair with strips of fabric & ribbons tied to the top. a little coffee station was just what we needed with the rainy & cold day we were having.
& of course, erin's not the only one expecting babies...
we brought home seven sweet, fluff-ball babies this weekend, too. more on these precious girls soon. xo.
p.s. happy birthday to my momma! she brought me into this world & i am so lucky to have her! i love you, mom!
