Happy baby shower day to my little sister!! Both mom and I wish we could be there but I'm there in spirit and I feel that I contributed a lot to it...I made the invitations and the favors and since she's at her shower now and there is no risk of her seeing this before the party I can finally post pictures of my creations! My idea was to take a photo of each guest with Nancy as they came in and print the photos and put them in the clear acrylic frames which I wrote on with paint marker as a souvenir of the day. I made enough even for those that couldn't attend (lots of out of town guests on the list of invites) and we will add a photo of Nancy with all her gifts for those people. I think it's a good idea for those people to use the frames as a thank you for their gift even if they couldn't be there today. :)
The candies are blue M&M's and blue hershey's kisses with "It's a Boy" on the tags. I had the ribbons printed and Alex picked out the little bassinet to put at the end of the date since he was with me the day I ordered them. I think they turned out really cute. :)
We did a lot of planning and rearranging but managed to get most of the living room furniture in that mom had at her house, when she walked in on tuesday after I brought her home she said "It looks so pretty here." I think she was happy to see her furniture and her things here, it made her feel at home. Still have a lot of work to do...tons of pictures to hang up on the walls but it will get done eventually.
Mom's room was changed around as well because I put the large dresser that she had in her guest bedroom in her room and I added a small chair from her office as well as her prized heart shaped table with glass top where she kept some very precious pieces she has collected over the years.
