Showering Baby Girl

The past two weeks have just flown by! Last weekend my family threw a baby shower for baby girl and it sent me into super nesting mode! I have been busy washing clothes and blankets and preparing for our little girl's arrival in a few short weeks.  

The shower was so much fun and I am blessed to have such fantastic family and friends! Baby girl sure is lucky to have such loving people that are excited to meet her soon and welcome her into the world! 

The shower flew by and was over in the blink of an eye so I didn't get too many pictures. However, my Mom took a few right before the first few friends started arriving.  

I am obsessed with making wreaths so I made this little gem for the front door. It was super easy! With a quick trip to Micheal's Craft stores you can make one too.  All you need are 8 hydrangea flowers, one 12 inch grapevine wreath, burlap ribbon, one small chalkboard sign, and floral wire. First, I cut the stems off the hydrangea flowers leaving about 3 inches to stick into the grapevine wreath. Then I took the green leaves from the hydrangea stems and stuck them into the grapevine as well. I found spots in the wreath were the grapevine was tightly woven to make sure the flowers and leaves would be secure. I ended up not needing any hot glue but if you have trouble getting those leaves to stick you can surely add some glue. Then I used wire to fold the ribbon and secure it to the grapevine. Finally, I added the chalk board using wire to fasten it in the center of the wreath. It took about 25 minutes to complete the whole project. I was thinking next spring we can erase the "It's a Girl" and replace it with "Welcome Spring".

My Mom sure was busy planning the shower decorations.  She found tons of decorations on Etsy. I loved the sweet little "It's a Girl" onesie banner she found for the fireplace. The onesies were cut from different chevron and dot cardstock.  Also, the letters on the onesies were three denominational, so they appear to pop off the paper.

My Mom worked with someone that went into business making themed cookies. These sweet little cookies came from J&J Bakeshop. The carriages were made to match the baby shower invitations. This bakeshop makes cookies for all kinds of occasions. I have seen Starwars cookies, safari cookies, Volkswagon cookies, and so much more.  Basically if you can dream it, this wonderful bakeshop can make it! :)

This idea for favors came from Pinterest. My Mom went on a hunt for O.P.I. nail polish with either 'girl' or 'baby' in the name.  She found "It's a Girl", "Hey Baby", and "Girls Love Ponies"! She found the tags on Etsy and had them customized with the date of the shower.

The baby shower was a blast and I want to thank my family for planning and putting the whole thing together! It was so exciting to see everyone at the shower and I am looking forward to meeting our little girl! 

I just started Spring Break as of 3PM yesterday! So I am hoping to post about the nursery and share a few great TpT products for the month of April this week. Make sure to stop back in a few days. See you soon!
