So, I've been a not-so-very-good-blogger lately. Goodness, I've been crazy busy! The back-to-school madness calmed down, and then I was in the throws of throwing a baby shower, and now I'm getting ready for Cooper's birthday party. My personal time is about zero right now, which means I'm just STARTING to catch up on blogging at 10:00 on a Sunday night. Sheesh! Expect a major flow of new blogs coming this week and next. I've gotta catch up!!
I'm super excited that my brother and sister-in-law are expecting their first baby! Baby Avery Madeline will be here any day now and Cooper is beyond excited...
...except that he keeps asking if he can drop baby Avery...
...we're working on that...
Anyways, here are a few pictures from the baby shower we threw for her at the church. Theme? Simple and dainty, just like sweet baby girls! I was worried it would turn out too "blah," but I was pleasantly surprised!
Our church fellowship hall is huge, so it's kinda hard to make a shower feel cozy! We put a round table just inside the door for people to drop of diapers in the diaper pail with a little note of encouragement for those 2 a.m. diaper changes.
I made a little framed note to go with it to explain everything. Grab that here!
I love how all of the baby's breath turned out!

At the last minute, we dug out some kids books to add as decorations. Between a few people's stashes, we found some perfect ones that were vintage and muted. But we also found these which were perfect for Miss Avery Madeline!
See what I mean? Diaper notes never disappoint...never!
Here's the food table...pre food!

Thanks to my mom-in-law for making the runners and napkins to decorate!
in my classroom, for this shower, and I'm making one for Cooper's party. You just get so much bang for your buck! This is literally left over scraps of fabric and an extra roll of the lace ribbon! I cut up the lace ribbon to script her name on the burlap banner! So simple, so cute, so cheap!
On the menu...our shower was at 10 a.m. so we did brunch!
Breakfast casserole muffins...
Here's the drink table...
We used left over baby's breath to make a wreath to hide the brown brick :)
So, I might be a little in love with mason jars. They just make me happy. They are so cheap and you can do so many things with them. I layered left over scraps of pink fabric, lace ribbon and teeny tiny twine and I love the way they turned out!
And a HUGE thanks to my talented sister-in-law for making the beautiful and yummy sugar cookies for our party! They were perfect!
She just started filling orders from her home, so check out her Facebook page here if you are local! She'll be checking into shipping soon!
