A 'Flower Shower'

Last Saturday I helped with a baby shower. My friends Portia and Jen get all of the credit for the super clever ideas that brought this one together. They decided to throw it at 9:30 am (yikes) and make it for breakfast. That turned out to be a HUGE hit, and everyone was bright eyed, bushy tailed, and loved it!


We decorated with big old flowers free-handed out of 12 by 12 scrapbook paper. (my only idea)

We made baby hair flowers and bows for the up and coming baby girl instead of playing shower games. Portia displayed samples by hanging them from her chandelier. It was so cute!!! It just screamed girly-ness!

And of course....CHOCOLATE!!!

This sounds like a lot better idea for having a shower in the morn than in middle of day. I love the cookie bouquet, how clever!

Oh and making bows instead of games...gotta remember this one!
Thanks for sharing all the ideas...
