Apparently...my three BFF's started plotting & planning a baby girl shower [even with google docs] months before Heaven was born. Even though they weren't sure it was a girl they couldn't help themselves...because they are THAT wonderful.
Sarah & I decided some people are crafters and some people are consumers. Sarah & I are the consumers [we pay for it!] and April & Cassie are the crafters---they make it. We try not to be jealous of their amazing glue gun & trash diving skills.
Thank you Sarah, April & Cassie for all your planning, purchasing, preparing and decorating. It was amazingly beautiful and everything was so yummy. Heaven was blessed with SO many pink things.
Cassie trash dove the ladder, forced her hubs to spray paint it pink. April made super fun name pins.
Cassie printed a photo of Heaven & [once again] put her husband to work making a frame for it that will perfectly match Heaven's room. She also made the fun "Heaven" painting on the table [also will go in her nursery] & the hanging tu-tu [ditto]. Thanks to all my friends who brought food.
Everything was delicious.
Percy Pigs candies [flown in from Ireland...thank you Mrs. Moore].
My step-mothers famous strawberry cake...pink punch...pink roses...oh my!
Red velvet cake cupcakes with icing...I think I ate all the ones on the second tier.
This picture was taken before the gift table was overflowing.
April also made beautiful little flower garland that matched the name tags.
April [aka the slave driver] and her workers [forced slaves] "willingly" helped her finish a few more balls to hang to decorate for the party [and later Heaven's room]. The first pink one took April 6 hours--so she was thankful to have all our wonderful friends help her finish the others ones. Thanks Ashley's, Stephanie, Jennifer and anyone else who was under April's rule & authority. [I tease, I tease]
April should open her own Etsy shop don't you think? Look at all these onesies she made for Heaven.
But wait...there's more!
I don't just have one crafty friend, I have many. Two more homemade gifts Heaven got.
Top right picture are the three hosts, myself & Heaven.
Sometimes while making Heaven headbands we made them a wee bit too big, so we gave them away.
Heaven is such a character!
My beautiful one month old girl on the day of her party!
The many things Heaven did while I opened pink bags filled with goodness I wish I could fit into.
The party was just...perfect. Thanks to all who helped & came.
We are so excited for you were born...
