Soon! Like any second, or minute, or day, or whatever, I will be an aunt again! We are all kind of excited around here.
This is my sister Stacy. Isn’t she a beautiful mama?!
A few of weeks ago we had a baby shower for her. The theme of the shower was “woodland animals”, or at least that’s what it started out being, then it quickly turned all “owls” on us.
Instead of doing the traditional shower cake, we opted to do cookies and fruit instead, along with some other various finger food items (not pictured).
Stacy’s hubby, Rick made the candle sticks for us. Our dad made the cookie stands. Don’t you love ‘em?! They just scream “woodland wonderland”. Am I right?!
For the center pieces we used old, blue Mason jars, filled with stones and moss. We stuck some tree branches in them and glued on some leaves cut out of cute scrapbook paper, and then added one little owl to each center piece.
We made the owls out of bark, scrapbook paper and buttons for the eyes. I think they turned out kinda cute.
Rick also made some little candle holders to go on all the tables.
We were going for a whimsical-woodland theme so we hung some icicle lights all around the room and added some tissue paper flowers along with the lights. We also hug a branch, with lights, over the dessert table to add to the ambiance. I think it worked, except for the fact that we had to have each guest sign a waiver, in case of injuries. (Just kidding… but we did keep hitting our heads on the stinkin’ thing!)
There were lots of family and friends.
Here is part of the fam that were able to come be apart of the special day…
It was a great shower, and we had a blast!
This is our crazy friend, Nancy (whom we’ve adopted). She’s messing with the owl eyes from off the cookies. I’m not sure why, but we asked her to help with the shower.
I guess ’cause she is always making us laugh… oh, and we love her too!
I forgot to take a picture of the gifts!!! Here you can see part of the gifts peeking out from behind the table…
Stacy was given many wonderful things, and I didn’t take any pictures!!!! The most important part of the shower, and I didn’t get any pictures of her opening gifts! Uuugghh! *Sigh*
I know, I’m a bad seed.
I hope I still get to hold the baby!
P.S. Thank you to my sister Sara, Nancy, my dad and mom, and Rick for all helping out and giving Stacy such a nice shower.
