Baby Shower

Hello
Whew, so sorry for the break...I missed blogging too. So here I am back and ready to roll!
My laptop decided to kick the bucket...right in the middle of all my craftiness.
I have some snippits of my baby shower. I'll try to focus only on he crafts I made. Not sure how my guest would feel if I posted pictures online.
I made this banner last minute (day of the shower). I used some colored card stock, ribbon, paper doilies, Thickers and some pattern paper.
We decided on a name, yay! Her name is Madilyn. Can't wait to meet my sweet little Maddie. :)
I made these jars, and placed them on the mantel. They are MM storage jars. Each one represents a trimester. I have an ultrasound for each trimester. I filled one jar with pink ribbon and paper butterflies, another with wooden clothespins, and the last one with crocheted flowers.

My sister made the BEST cupcakes ever! She made my 2 favorite flavors (chocolate and strawberry) nomnomnom! The candy buffet table was a hit! It always is.....I had 10 different types of candy.
I made these cupcake toppers with her name on them. Super easy! I used some spring doily tags, punched some butterflies using MS punch, ribbon and a circle with "baby Madilyn" on it.
I also made labels for EVERYTHING! :) I went a little crazy, but I wanted it all to coordinate.
My sister made this cute fruit basket:

It was so much fun using pink and TULLE. This baby better like tulle. hahah she received the cutest tutu. eeek!
This girl is set! She received SO many diapers, wipes, toys and 70 outfits!! Yes, she is certainly blessed to have so many people who love her and can't wait to meet her.
I am so excited. I seriously can not wait for our girl to join our family.
I'm working on Noah's first birthday party. The parties never end....
xoxo, Veronica
