Baby Shower How To's

Strawberry Jelly Favors
I bought wood cut-outs of crosses and "S's" from Michael's. I used the crosses for the jelly favors and the "S's" for another project :)
I spray painted them silver so there would be a contrast against the burlap.
I then cut out square pieces of burlap.
Unscrewed the metal ring and placed the burlap under and screwed the lid back on. I then hot glued the crosses to the top. And there you have it!

Homemade Strawberry Jelly Favors for each and every special guest :)

How To make MOSS LETTERS -

This stuff is AWESOME!! It's sheets of moss. Made this job 100 times easier than I expected it to be. Bought the sheets of moss and the big letters at JOANN's fabric.

Just layed the sheets out, put the letters on top, traced out each letter; wide enough to cover the sides as well. Then used spray adhesive (another item worth buying to make life A LOT easier!), pressed the two together and there you have it!

I used the moss letters to decorate the gift table at the shower. However, they are being used in baby Shaylee's nursery. Hopefully, I can snag a picture of the nursery all decorated this weekend while I'm in town.

Baby Shower... COMPLETED!!!

This past weekend was the baby shower I've been planning for months!!! My bestfriend Brigid is expecting her first percious little baby in September and I'm so extremely excited for her! She is going to be such an amazing mom to her baby girl and I can't wait to watch her family grow! The day went so smoothly, without any problems, and with the HELP of a couple of very special people! I'm going to post a bunch of pictures and I promise more detailed blogs about how the day came together, in the days to follow.
