Colorful Baby Shower

We finally had my cousin's baby shower on Sat. It was a brunch and the decorations turned out to be too cute! Of course I'm going to share them with you :)

The shower was held at the church I grew up in. My cousin, Lacy, is pregnant with a little girl. Her name is going to be Hadley Elizabeth!

This was the hostess gift. You can see her baby bedding draped over the side. The shower's entire color scheme is based on her colorful bedding!

This is the entry table (right next to the hostess gift). There was no sign in guest book so we just made up a table of some pregnant photos, gift basket, and favors.

This flower arrangement was made by my Aunt. She did such a fabulous job! I just love the blocks in the bottom.

I painted this frame to match her bedding and slapped on some rosettes. You just can't go wrong with rosettes!

I made the favors from and idea that my cousin sent me. Scissors and Spatula's did something similar but I gave it a different twist. I must say the popcorn inside is delish! It's got white chocolate chip and M&M's mixed together. The tags I cut using my Cricut. As for the little pregnant women, I cut them all out. By hand. It took forever! I then just hand wrote the "Pop Date" (her due date) on the tags.

And here is the whole spread! One of the ladies picked out all of the decorations and then all of the hostesses helped decorate. 

This is such a fabulous idea for a cupcake stand or even to hold other fruit! Take terra cotta pots and Gorilla glue them together. You can paint them any color you want and the sizes are endless!

My mom whipped up all these bows. She is so good at making them!

My great friend Jamie made this beautiful wreath for the hospital to put Hadley's weight and such on. It was also perfect for the shower decorations!

The balls hanging from the ceiling added such a fun touch to the decor.

And here is the beautiful mom to be! The corsage was made by my mom. It was fun and funky and it went right along with her fun color scheme! In case you are wondering where I get my craftiness, it's most definitely from my mom!

And here are all of the hostesses!

And here are my best friends a girl could ask for :)

P.S. I've got a few things to show off that I made just for baby Hadley!
