My shower was not a surprise. I was so glad I was able to help and be a part of the planning. My parents and I spent the day before the shower cooking, decorating and spending some fun family time together.
We utilized our development's club house. It was the perfect location. It if just down the road from our house and it was a perfect blank canvas for decor. We went with a fall theme and decorated with some of our favorite fall decorations and threw in some pumpkins, gourds, and mums.
Our gift table before the gifts arrived. I created the "Thank You" banner from fall themed scrapbook paper, some white paint and ribbon. We decorated the table with pumpkins and some small indian corn. (On the corners of the table)
We used this table for our guest books. Each book had a fall theme.
We also had a mason jar filled with candy corn and asked our company to guess how many were inside. I also made the "Baby" banner that hung above.
We set up each table with beautiful Pelee Mums, gourds, and indian corn.
Some of the decorations on the tables were taken right from momma's house!
We hung leaf garland and indian corn garland from all of the windows.
I'm so sad. I planted these beauties in my front yard and the deer ate every single petal!
This is something I made and we hung it in the center of the room.
I was afraid the entire shower would be a little to fall and not enough baby.
We asked out guests to write little wishes for us and Baby G.
I can't wait to make a little scrapbook with all the lovely notes.
Our guests filled out our calendar with the day and sex of Baby G.
I increased the size of the image so you can see lots of girls up there.
We played Baby bingo and "Who knows Mommy and Daddy"
It's crazy but my best friend's little girl, 6 years old, WON!!!
We had a a bunch of fall them gifts for all the winners.
This amazing diaper cake from my sister in law.
It looks a little messy because I couldn't wait to see all the goodies inside and I did not put it back correctly! It is filled with baby tylenol, gas relief, thermometer and lots of other goodies.
Here is one of our favors. My mother in law creates pottery and she made an apple soap dish.
My mom found these adorable Cute As a Button soap to add to the soap dish.
Check back tomorrow for part 2
