This past weekend I helped host a baby shower for one of my lifelong friends, Leah. We have known each other and have been friends literally since we were born! She is due to have a baby girl in July. We can't wait to meet Lilly!
I was in charge of the table decorations so I enlisted my mom to help me. We got our inspiration from the table decorations from one of Katie's showers when she was pregnant with Colson.
We started with the burlap table runner that my mom bought me for Mother's day. It is from THIS shop on etsy.
The candle sticks and bird cages are from Oops and we potted some flowers to put inside them.
On top of the candle sticks we added some moss from Hobby Lobby and topped with some candles. My mom already had the moss bird and it looked right at home by the birdcage. Leah said everything reminded her of her wedding decorations so I think she liked it!
The advice cards matched the invitations and the guests wrote notes of encouragement and advice for the mom-to-be. The left over cards can be used for notecards.
Basic steps for the chalkboard:
-find a cheap matted picture (it doesn't matter at all what it looks like)
-paint the frame however you would like
-peel the paper off the back and take out the mat and glass
-paint the glass with chalkboard paint
-cover the mat in fabric of choice (I just taped it to the back of the mat so I can easily switch it up)
-put the mat in first with the chalkboard glass behind it and re-assemble frame
-easy peasy with endless possibilities
Leah and I were able to get a picture before the guests arrived.
