On Sunday, I went to a baby shower for my precious cousin, Whitney. She is pregnant with her first child, a baby girl!
My Aunt Pat, (Mom’s youngest sister), hosted the shower at her home.
Like a goof-ball, I forgot to take my camera, but I did snap a few pictures of the decorations on my phone.
How cute is that tu-tu around the punch bowl?
My favorite little decoration was these adorable little baby booties my Aunt Pat made with styrofoam cups.
Aren’t they adorable?!
Of course, I had to have a tutorial!
We gathered around the kitchen counter as Aunt Pat showed us how she made them.
First, cut the top off of the styrofoam cup.
Then cut two slits in the cup about an inch apart…
Push the middle section between the two slits back…
Then fold the sides over the middle section…
Secure the pieces with a staple and glue a little pink or blue ribbon on top of the staple. Aunt Pat put some netting in the bootie to hold the candy mints. Too cute!!!
Thanks for the demonstration, Aunt Pat!
I just had to take a picture of these strawberries…you don’t even want to know how many of these I ate! :)
And I had to have one of these too. They were “melt in your mouth” good!
There were beautiful pink roses that greeted us when we walked in the front door..
A cute little vignette with Whitney’s framed baby shower invitation…
I wanted to steal this bear! Shhhh…don’t tell anyone…
A few baby decorations hanging from the chandelier…
And look at one of the presents Whitney got…
My mom’s cousin, whom we all call “Baby Doll”, ordered this from one of my sponsors, Red Letter Words. It was absolutely beautiful!!
It was a wonderful baby shower and such a blessing to celebrate this very special time in Whitney’s life!
I also wanted to share an announcement with you.
Monday I will be participating in a blog Parade of Homes at Poppies at Play!
I was so honored (and a little intimidated) to be invited. I don’t really feel like my home is worthy of being in a parade of homes, but I had to take advantage of such a wonderful opportunity.
I am trying to get my master bedroom renovation finished in time for the Parade. My home (3 rooms) will be featured on Monday, and the Parade will continue throughout the week. I hope you will join me!
Secondly, be sure to mark your calendar for my second linky party, “Best DIY Projects of April.” It’s next Friday, April 30th!
That’s only one week away!
I hope you can come!
Have a blessed day!
