My first grandchild is due next month and the countdown is in full swing...
I threw a baby shower for my daughter earlier this month to celebrate. We had a great time planning it, and I made lots of fun decorations. The nursery theme is elephants, so I included one of my favorite picture book quotes. It was posted on a welcome sign by the door:
"A person's a person, no matter how small."—Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who
Here are a few snapshots of everything before the event got underway:
The diaper cake was adorable!
(What a job, though.)
I wrapped plastic silverware in paper napkins.
(The polka dot container is in the nursery now.)
Fancy and no mess to clean up!
We ordered the cake.
(The bakery did a fantastic job!)
I filled several buckets with goodies.
And this banner was displayed on a wall in the dining room.
(I designed it on the computer and laced the printouts with ribbon.)
I also made these favor boxes and filled them with Hershey Kisses.
(Cookies and Cream!)
Fifty of them!
Here's a picture of Crissy and me at the shower.
(I think we have the same nose and chin.)
3 more weeks!
