Baby Shower Recap

The baby shower last weekend turned out fabulous, so I wanted to give a quick recap today in case you find yourself planning a baby shower soon. My friend Kathryn hand-made the adorable are these? And, so cost efficient!

We decided to tie in a "bird" theme with the invitations and wishes tree. The bird stamp used on the invitation was also used on the wishes cards that we tied to the tree.


After we ate lunch, we all grabbed a wish off the tree and read them aloud to the group. Allison the "mommy to be" loved it...and we did too! I think all of us had a tear in our eye after hearing all the wishes.
We then went back to the house, drank some champagne and enjoyed these delicious petit fours from my favorite bakery in town.

Last but not least, here is the "oh baby" sign I made with help from my good friend Brooke. She printed the letters and I assembled! It's now hanging in the baby nursery and I think it looks great! .

Last week I posted this "oh baby" sign (the source for my inspiration) and mistakenly gave credit to Martha Stewart when the credit actually belongs to Paula from Two Ellie!! I love Paula's blog...its one of my favorite sources for design inspiration...if you haven't seen it yet, go check it out!

Happy Planning!
