Last night was filled with presents, great food, girlfriends, and excitement over a baby that will be here SOON ... so basically, it was perfect!
Our friend Sarah is expecting her second daughter in February, so we all gathered to sprinkle her with a few small gifts and talk about how excited we are to meet this sweet baby girl.
I played hostess along with my girlfriends Classic Annie and Lauren. The mama is in pink!
This banner was an awesome Etsy find by Classic Annie.
I made this wreath for the front door. I wrapped a straw wreath (still in plastic wrap) with the pink and white ombre ribbon and then used a chalk marker to straight up copy this design I found on Pinterest. It was my first time attempting one of these boards and I can't wait to try it again!
We also had the guests to fill out these "wishes for baby" cards. I love this at a baby shower ... way more fun than playing cheesy games!
The food, oh the food! I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
Above are the yummiest little ceviche cups, and below are brie bites. YUM.
I made these little cucumber sandwiches, and I also did a low-carb option that was a cucumber cup (hollowed out with a melon baller) and filled with jalapeno artichoke cream cheese dip that I found at Aldi ... and let me tell you, that dip is absolutely delicious.
The tulips throughout the house looked so lovely!
While Sarah opened presents, we all signed this frame for Mary Scott. The frame had a 5x5 opening and I was able to create this sweet little name graphic in PicMonkey and print it out at home on cardstock for free.
The other hostesses took on the brunt of the food and decor, but crafts are my jam, and that's what I'm most comfortable with! I also made these little favors for everyone to take home. I wrapped a votive in pink buffalo check ribbon and included a little note tied to it in white twine with this saying:
Burn this candle on the night
Once the stork has made its flight
With a flicker of the flame
Please say a prayer in Mary Scott's name
It was truly a joy to sprinkle this deserving mama with love and sweet little girly gifts!
