Our grand-daughter is arriving soon so it is time to shower her and mommy with lots of love and gifts. The first shower was at our home with our extended families and friends.
It was a 'onesies' theme in yellow and gray (the nursery colors). I cut out onesies using a pattern I had and Aunt Bekah helped cut the letters using the Big Shot to spell out "Welcome Adelyn Kaylee".
The refreshments included cake, of course. Hubby is hoping there is a lot left over. My daughter prefers whipped frosting but since she has gestational diabetes, she won't be eating much of it so it is buttercream for the new grandpa.
We also included a lot of fresh veggies and fruit.
And I got these cute little cheese crackers through a local co-op. Taste just like goldfish crackers but the little duckies are so cute for a baby. They were the perfect 'salty' accompaniment for the dark chocolate M&M's.
A friend of my daughter's is starting a floral business and I asked her to make a centerpiece for the coffee table that could be used in the nursery. Didn't she do a great job!
And of course, there were gifts - plenty of goodies to help the new parents care for their darling daughter. This is a baby afghan crocheted by my younger daughter. She did a really good job.
And one of my favorites - a Green Bay Packers bib and hair bow :-)
The guests played a game by decorating a onesie for Baby Adelyn and we hung them on the ribbon clothesline. Everyone was a good sport and came up with some creative designs.
Mommy and Daddy chose the 3 they liked the most and those guests received a prize. These were the winners.
It was so much fun decorating with the onesie theme. When my daughter was a baby, my mom would pick up a pack of onesies everytime she went to Walmart. I always think of her when I see a pack of onesies :-) And now they come in so many cute designs.
