Baby Shower

I recently had the pleasure of co-hosting a baby shower for a dear family member.  With games being furthest from everyone's minds, we opted for craft activities to entertain our guests.  This seems to be the trend now-a-days.  

We started with a scrapbook baby album for the mother of honor.  The table was set with a gorgeous quilt in spring colors with layers of cake plates and tea cups filled to the brim with every scrapbook embellishment imaginable.  I love using ordinary kitchen serving platters mixed with vintage elements for display purposes.

Each guest had the privilege of creating a page so once the shower was over, the mother of honor received a completed baby scrapbook and all she has to do is add the photos.  It was adorable!

The food table (not completely set) was decorated in in greens & white with a fabric bunting banner.

The centerpiece for the food table & the coffee table were ikea coffee mugs (29 cents) filled with petite white flowers.  One group had a miniature paper bunting banner & the second grouping had a miniature paper clothes line.

The flower pots doubled as giveaways too!  

 We then headed outside to enjoy the spring weather & decorate onesies.  It always amazes me how the creative possibilities are endless when you get a group of ladies together!  Hung on the clothes line to dry, they added extra decoration too!

So, not only did the mom receive fabulous gifts, she was also blessed with onesies & a baby book.  

Hope you enJOY!
