Kathryn's Pink and Glitter Baby Shower

Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited to show you the results of my hard work over the past few months! Here was my inspiration for the shower. I wasn't able to do everything I wanted for the shower due to a really crazy schedule at work, but I think it still ended up quite lovely, and Kathryn was able to get some really great things for her baby (which is the whole point of a shower)!

Let's start with the tassel garland I made for the fireplace. We shared a tutorial a few weeks ago on how to make it. It was perfect for the fireplace and added just the right amount of pink and gold to show off the presents.

Yes I am that person who color codes my wrapping paper to the party I am throwing. I collected money from other coworkers, and was able to purchase some really nice gifts from Kathryn's registry.
I'm a big believer in candy bars at showers. They are pretty to look at and yummy to eat (which to me is the perfect combination). I ordered the candy off of Amazon.
For the favors I knew we had to have pink nail polish to celebrate Kathryn's little girl. I used these tags in my bestie's lingerie shower, and I was "tickled pink" to use them again.
I ordered these puff balls off of Amazon and put them together slowly in the weeks before the party. They are a pain to put together, but are so cute!
I bought this tray from Hobby Lobby for 40% off and spray painted it at about midnight the night before the party. I found the straws on Etsy.
I showed you these glitter letters last week. I added glitter to the top and sides of the letters after I took the pictures of the tutorial. You can find out how I made them here.
I took this picture of Kathryn blowing a bubble a few weeks ago, and surprised her by putting it on all the popcorn containers (sorry for the blurry picture). "She's Ready To Pop." I ordered the containers off of Oriental Trading for super cheap!
These nutella cups were amazing! I will definitely be sharing the recipe soon!
I made these the night before the party (literally was spray painting them in the dark outside), so I didn't have time to make a tutorial. I promise to do so soon though! They were so gorgeous!
I buy all my invitations from Etsy. I have used this shop multiple times, and the results are always perfect.
My cohosts and the guest of honor.
The gorgeous cohosts.
The mama-to-be was glowing!
Playing the 'paper plate' game. Guests had to attempt to draw a picture of Kathryn's baby with the plate on their head. Kathryn chose the person whose picture most resembled a baby. The results were hilarious.
Opening presents.
It made cleaning up much sweeter knowing I now own these amazing glitter mason jar vases!
