September 18th! The long awaited baby shower is now one week away. Woooohoo I’m super duper excited. Today I have turned 35weeks and I’m almost there people. I had my Ava on the day I turned 37weeks so lets pray this little monster decides to stay in and bake for a few more weeks.
So what’s the theme you ask? Well…my Mom and Sister have graciously decided to throw this lovely shower and after throwing around a few ideas (A tea shower, Nesting theme…woodland theme) we settled on one that I knew would be perfecto. Our little man is SUPPOSED to be due October 15th, BUT as it seems, he is a little to eager to wait that long. But with an October/Fall baby I thought it would be so cute if we did a my little pumpkin theme!!!! Colors of choice are Tiffany Blue, Chocolate Brown and Pumpkin Orange. Now because I am soooo anal about having my hand in anything decorating or planning I just had to help. I can’t keep out of the planning process-I love it too much!!! So while the ladies do all the planning, coordinating and food. I am doing a little bit of the design process. Store bought? Huh? No way…if I can make it myself, I will find a way!
Here’s is what I’ve done so far…
Designed the invitations!
Made a few Food Labels and Cupcake Toppers with the cordinating Paterns and Colors!
What are cupcake toppers you ask?? Why these are!
and here’s is about a million you can order from Etsy sellers if your not crafty.
I made these myself and there are hundreds of tutorials out there on how.
The example from above is from here 🙂 http://www.etsy.com/shop/jackandizzy?ref=seller_info
The food Labels…
I’ve got a bunch more fun projects to show you after all is said and done, so after next week be sure to check back and see pictures of the party and the little DIY projects I did!
