This weekend, I threw a baby shower for a good friend of mine who will be having a baby girl in September. It's really had my creativity flowing but, of course, I've not been able to post anything about it previously for risk of giving anything away to those that would be in attendance! I'm going to start with my earrings though, which were part of the prize bags for the various games.
The theme for the shower was pink and brown, on account of the mom-to-be's last name being Brown, and her having a girl. I immediately knew that I wanted to make some pink and brown jewelry for the prizes. I picked up some glass pearls and fished around for antiqued brass findings in my stash. In that there would be a variety of different age groups being represented, I was hoping for something somewhat classic. I packaged them with lotion, a compact mirror, and a magnetic notepad. I'm hoping the winners enjoyed their haul!
My co-host found a polka dot card stock that she used for the invitations, which then became part
of the theme, so I was happy to make some nifty packaging with that
card stock too. (More on the packaging to come later.) I actually love
this color combo, so thinking I'll make some more with the supplies
that I have left over. Watch out for those!
