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.
It made cleaning up much sweeter knowing I now own these amazing glitter mason jar vases!
