Happy Nesting....


This past weekend was filled with to to much fun....
With my daughter weeks from delivering her first child, her best friend from high school, her mother, my mother and I gave her a baby shower inviting all of our girlfriends.
She is so in the nesting time of her pregnancy, that I choose ..."Happy Nesting" as our theme!  
I Will be posting photos for days....


As guests arrived they were asked to place their name on the backside of the Be'be' Violet tag, along with their predication of the date, time and weight of the baby.


  S.K. had so much fun looking at these later...some dates she loved....some not so much.



Brenley, S.K.'s friend since grade school... along with her beautiful daughter Ava.  She was thrilled that they both were able to come to the party.




Kaci and Penny friends from Harrah...guessing..?


Happy Nesting Mommie-To-Be!
 
Randy painted this old dresser for me to match the woodwork around the staircase.  I wanted this area in the entry to be very simple and sweet.  


Inside these wonderful gifts hold precious memories to be!



Hannah made this darling diaper cake with the oh so cute Scentsy lamb on top.


Haley, sweet friend and hostess!


Our dessert menu had all of S.K.'s favorites.....Sparkling cider, red velvet cupcakes, cake with butter cream icing and a new treat petite strawberry bites.



There were more babies at the shower.....just couldn't get them all in
the photograph.  And two of the girlfriends pictured above are due in the 
next few months.  An amazing group of young women...it is so exciting to see how their families are growing.

The burlap sack on the left was one of the favors 
we offered our guests when leaving.  Each bag had 
"Violet" flower seeds in them.  A hang tag shown below was attached to each bag.

More to come...

Baby Count Down.....


Just weeks until our first grandchild is to be born.....we are working on nursery and the upcoming baby shower to be held here at our home this weekend!!!

The mommie to be has chosen "grandma chic" as her nursery theme.  Yes I said,  grandma chic.  Baby bedding made from fabrics that look like my great grandmothers aprons and calico fabrics hung in wooden hoops as wall decor.  It has been exciting and fun.....but just like Christmas morning she can't get here fast enough.
