A craft post turned baby shower!
I hope you all had a happy Easter!! We certainly did!!
It seems that I move in and out of seasons in my life and I’ve just been in a very crafty season!! 😉 I LOVE to craft! I wish I had all the time and money in the world to devote to my simple hobby but sadly, that’s not the case. I mostly tend to craft around special occasions or when I need something that I don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for. I recently hosted a baby shower for a sweet friend and I really wanted it to be super cute at an economical cost. My grandmother tells me that I have champagne taste and a beer budget. She’s not far off the mark there at all!!
I loved these sweet wreaths!! I made these with tissue paper and Styrofoam!! They were so simple Ruthie did half of this one….in fact, she helped a lot in most of these little projects! They all all so easy! I did 2 wreaths and they ran me about $6 each.
Diaper cakes are always a fun project. I like these because not only do they serve as decor but the diapers are completely useable! Mom can simply disassemble it when she’s ready to use them. Ruthie helped A LOT here! Tobin did too, I had a special job for him….he held the ribbon while I tied it. That was the only job that wasn’t too girly! 😉
I made three diaper cakes, 1 four tier, 1 two tier and I also made a 3 tier for a girl baby (my forgetful self didn’t get a picture of that one:( it was super cute too!) I had about $8 in each cake….no lie!
I have to give props to my Mother-in Law for the flower arranging here! I received this sweet duck when Tobin was born and have saved it for such a time as this! 😉
And here’s the sweet mother-to-be. These are her 2 daughters and they have an older brother already and a baby brother on the way.
This was going to be a craft post but I figured I’d go ahead and show you the rest of the shower! 😉
The food was oh so delicious!! We kept it simple.
Baby showers are so much fun! I loved being able to host it here and I was so thankful for all the help I received with food, games, set up and clean up!!
I still have a few more crafts. I’ll post more about those later. I’ll give you a hint about my next one. It involves sponges and water! See ya next time!!
