A few weekends ago, my mom, sisters, and sister-in-law threw us the most amazing shower! It was in my hometown, and I loved getting to see so many people I went to high school with and special people who've been in my life since I was a little baby myself. My mom and sister Rachael led the way on organizing the shower, and they did such an amazing job!
The chandelier you see in these pictures is actually the chandelier we used in the arch at our wedding! My mom has held on to it for me since then, and it will now go in Maeva's nursery (when we actually set it up.) They went with a navy, pink, and yellow color scheme to match her nursery, so of course I loved all of the details. My mom made the adorable rosette wreath with the M on it for the front door, and they had lots of cute girly goodies hung on clotheslines.
They made these fun poms that I plan to use in the nursery as well. My mom painted these little flower pots, and I now have them sitting on my front porch. They are a great little touch of spring, and so far I've managed to keep them alive...knock on wood. :)
For hostess gifts, I used my Cricut to put a vinyl monogram on tumblers that I picked up from Dollar General for only $2.50. I also made them a set of stationary, and put it together in a little basket (also Dollar General - 3 for $1) and finished it off with a chalkboard label I cut with my Cricut.
And I have to include this random picture. You might notice in some of these pictures I'm wearing a cardigan, but eventually took it off. I typically wear cardigans just because I'm self conscious of my arms. It was particularly hot on the day of my shower, BUT I had the bright idea the day before to get spray tanned...you can see where this is going. She did a pretty good job, except for my left arm...it was like giraffe print or something. It was so strange!! As the afternoon went on, it got hotter and hotter, and I couldn't take it any longer, so decided oh well with the cardigan. In this picture, my best friend is looking at the ridiculousness that is my arm, and her facial expression cracks me up. So there's a random story for you. Oh, and yes...that would be a fainting goat you see in the picture as well. My niece wanted one, and apparently my parents can't say no to their grandkids...so meet Wilfred. :)
It was such a wonderful day and I can't thank you girls enough for putting this together and all of the amazing gifts!! We are certainly blessed, and I can't wait to show Maeva all of her cute goodies. :)
