Kristen's Baby Shower!

Twice in one week!  New Year's resolution is going strong. 

Here are some pictures of a shower I threw last May for our great friend, Kristen. This was while Dan was going to seminary in Kentucky, so the budget was small, but I think it turned out great! We had a fun time painting onesies, munching on adorable cookies (from Missy Bevil!), and talking about baby stuff! 

Paper cards from Hobby Lobby and cute paper cut-outs from Archiver's.

Missy, Kristen, and I 
Great friends from Kentucky who we miss dearly!

For some fun activities we decorated onesies and played a word match game.  Kristen's husband, Viktor is from Hungary, so we matched words associated with baby things in Hungarian to English.  It was funny!

The table.  
The place mats were kraft paper cut into rectangles.  

Missy's cookies.  
Yes, she should go into business.

Serioulsy, too cute!

Simple stamping to go along with stamping on the invites.  

Cylinder vase wrapped with cardstock an CUTE paper cut-outs founds at Archiver's

Nest with jelly beans...yum yum!

Bird House.  
I just picked up a birdhouse at a craft store and painted it to match the nursery!

Bird tree. 
I used card stock, kraft paper (LOVE kraft paper!), googly eyes, twine, and tree branches. Super easy and super cute!


  1. Steph,
    I did not know you had a BLOG!!! I love it!!! You seriously need to go into business! You are too cute and creative. Post some more b/c I will be reading.

  2. Thanks! I'm going to try to keep it up!

  3. I love the decorating the onesie idea! I'm throwing a baby shower in the spring - what did you use to decorate them with?

    And your decorations for Sarah are awesome. You really have a great eye for design!

  4. Thanks, Kim! We just used puffy paints (with cardboard in the middle so it didn't bleed through).
