I celebrated the upcoming birth of my nephew yesterday. The invitation is a flat A7 invite. The onesie is from New Arrival. I used the markers to do the design on the onesie to make it look like a baseball jersey.
The pennant pieces are from Birthday Bash. The font is Opposites Attract. I made the center piece reservable, the nursery theme is a jungle/safari theme so I put a few Create a Critter animals on the back. This is the first time I tied each letter on with twine or raffia, it worked very well, much easier than threading the tulle through each letter.
I made burp cloths with rickrack trim and a special appliqué alligator one for the nursery. The alligator is from Create a Critter.
I also made her a bath apron the pattern is from blissful patterns. The tutorial was pretty easy to follow, I struggled a little bit with the pattern though. It was nothing my home-ec teacher mom couldn't talk me through though.
The center pieces were roses in a square vase tied with tulle, raffia, and bakers twine. A local baker and high school friend of the mom made these adorable cupcakes. I created the cake toppers with Sports Mania. I cut the shadow of the baseball and sandwiched a cookie stick between the shadow and the regular cut.
The co-hostess picked up these cracker jacks as the favors. I cut out tags from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more. The bat is also from Sports Mania. I printed the sentiment and used a Stampin' up! punch to cut it out.
The food labels are 4x4 scored in half with bats and baseballs as accents.
We put a chocolate fountain, drinks, and cupcakes on the kitchen table. I put a large baseball on the table cloth to dress it up bit.
It was a lovely shower. Nephew got a TON of great stuff! He'll be here before I know it.
