Entries in baby shower (2)
our dearest friends Christina and Marc are having a baby boy. Little Titus is coming soon, and I was honored to cohost with our friend Jackie.
Christina wanted brown and blue, and didn't want a particular theme.
It came together quite nicely.
Please forgive our chocolate fountain. The chocolate was oh-so yummy, however it was too thick. The one bummer in a beautiful day. So what do you do when there is an obvious blunder? Keep on hostin'.
Momma's favorite drink? Chocolate Milk.
It took Susan, Jackie, the Hacker and I two weeks of downing Starbuck's frappicinos to get those little bottles ready.
Say Cheese Jenna and Jen.
A chalkboard wall can come in handy as wall art during a shower.
I made the vertical garland by hole punching construction paper, and hot glueing it to fishing line. It gave a nice backdrop to the food and drink tables.
Hand dipped marshmallows, stawberries, and pretzles are ready to be dipped into the fountain.
The tags on the cupcakes, mason jars, and the chocolate milk bottles were all made by the talented Amy Shultz. To see more of her designs, check out her etsy shop And She Loved Flowers.
I made a bingo card game for guests to play as Christina opened her gifts. When she opened a gift that was on the card, they guests were to put a button on it. I saved the buttons from random the collections I've had in my classroom.
It was so fun seeing our patio full of women, laughing and having a good time. I like seeing our home full of people. I pray it always can be a home full of people.
Jenn designed the Titus bunting, which became the perfect area to place the "Hopes for Titus" cards.
Those were made by yours truly.

So is little Jimmy.
I love this picture of my friend Kristin holding her baby girl. It's so soft.
My stylish husband had the terrific idea of bringing out my old rocking chair. It gave a nice touch to dead space.
Momma-to-be and ever so lovely Grandma-to-be.
Momma and her two hosts.
It was a good day.
