Baby Shower Elements

If you have been reading the blog, you have probably noticed that I mentioned a recent baby shower. A couple weeks ago, my family threw my first baby shower and we got to utilize the new space in our basement.  Everyone worked so hard putting it together- everything was just lovely.  Today I want to share some of these lovely elements with you!

My Mom worked for weeks beforehand making all the pinwheels that were in the center of the tables.  She also made matching napkin ring holders with tiny little pinwheels on them.  Yesterday when I told my Mom I would be writing a blog post about the baby shower, I let her know that it would be a great follow-up to do a tutorial on her pinwheels and napkin holders- what do you think?!?

Glycerin soap (in the colors of the baby's room) were wrapped in pages of vintage children's books and tied with a bow  as take-home gifts for guests. 

The poms above the serving table were a last-minute add.  My mom had purchased a couple white tissue paper poms to hang and I fell in love with them.  I went out and found blue and yellow tissue paper in the hues of the room and my sisters and I made a few extra poms for hanging and placing around the room. 

My mom found these great posters at a small shop in Bay City.  I think they are actually supposed to be wrapping paper, but they were up around the room as decor.  Notice what "y" stands for?

At the shower, my Mother talked about the importance of prayer as a Mom, and made up these little booklets for everyone to take home- a guide to praying for Baby Bernardi and other children. 

The verse on the front reads: "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made." ~Psalm 139: 13-14
