This shower was in the works from about December. Sarah, Lea Ann, and I made most of the decorations, stalked Hobby Lobby and Target for cute stuff, and used what we had from home.

I love that I have wonderful, creative friends! I can easily say that the shower was a success!

Have a great weekend!

Linking up with Under the Table and Dreaming Celebrations


  1. Wow! You guys could be pros! That is too cute!

  2. Seriously one of the cutesy showers I've seen!!!

  3. This would also make a really adorable first birthday party.

    Love it!

  4. Too cute! I was wondering what the favors were? Also, what type of grass did you use and how long does it take to grow? Thanks!

  5. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! I truly appreciate it! The favors were just cookies that we purchased from Sam's Club. The grass is rye grass, and it takes about 3-4 weeks or more to grow depending on how long you want the grass to be.


Thank you for visiting! We love hearing from you!
