Louise is my "hippy" friend, so I knew immediately that I wanted it to have an "earthy" theme to it. The colors were mainly green and cream with some blue thrown in. Instead of doing a lot of flowers we did plants that she could take home with her (which she loved). For food we did, cream cheese/cucumber/dill crackers, cupcakes, trail mix, hummus w/ pita chips, and fruit kabobs. It was the perfect summer baby shower menu. All pretty light and refreshing and it was all almost eaten!
We had a blessings tree for her. People wrote sweet words of encouragement or prayers to her on little leaves. I sent her home with the tree and extra leaves so that when people come to visit her they can continue writing prayers/blessings to her, Ben and the baby.
I made this banner on the cricut machine. I love that thing, it makes it so easy.
The fun party favors. Everyone went home with almost a whole garden because we had so many left over! One of the other hostesses did this and did such a wonderful job putting it all together.
I loved how they turned out.
Our hostess gift to the mom-to-be. A swing! I think she liked it.
Love her and can't wait to get my hands on that baby boy.
All the wonderful Hostesses that did a fantastic job helping me with everything,
I'm so thankful for the opportunity to have had a shower for Louise. It was a great time and a we had a pretty decent turn out. Hopefully she enjoyed it as much as we all did planning for it!
