The focal point of the room
Tissues pom-poms SO easy. I'd recommend making them the day of and with the ribbon in the wire.
Proof we made the guest of honor work. This was taken two days before the shower. Brooke wanted to make these. Super easy and can be used in the baby's room after the shower.
The "Pomander ball" in action, it's in the smaller box. My mom made another one too. Speaking of my mom:
Here she is working on these Dinner Napkin Snowballs but we used small napkins. They were also easy. We made a bunch and put them everywhere.
I loved how the mantle turned out. We used wooden squares Brooke already had there but put in some shoes she's bought for her baby along with a few board books and baby accessories. (See above photos)
We used Brooke's Cricut to cut out the circles, clouds and letters for the banner. We just winged the doily flowers and I loved how they turned out. (I know I keep saying that!)
I got the wings from Oriental Trading Company, but was unimpressed since they were just cardboard cut-outs. My great mom glued feathers and added glitter to give them a little sparkle. We put them on Brooke's chair to make her look angelic.
Isn't she a cute pregnant lady? She is ALL baby!
My best friend took on the challenge to make a large monogram for the shower. I showed her several pictures of monograms with flowers. At the last minute I saw one made out of cupcake liners. It was perfect and Becky made it happen.
Amazing, isn't it? Brooke can use it in the nursery too!
On the gift table we put some framed pictures of Brooke and her husband as babies. It was alluding to the game we would play later.
I could NOT decide where to put the cloud garland. At the last minute my mom helped me put it up in the doorway to the kitchen.
Last week I said I'd post everything about the shower but I can't fit it all so next week I'll share the food and the games we played. Stay tuned!
