I was put in charge of decorations, so I knew we needed to start with a banner. Since I don’t have a fancy Silhouette or Cricut machine, I had to make it by hand. I’m pleased with how it turned out! I traced circles on the orange/white paper and navy paper using two different sized glass mixing bowls. I strung the circles together by jute twine I already had on hand. This was a pretty cheap and easy project!
Our spread of food! There were some really cute blue and white iced cookies, as well as the blue and orange cake.
The drink station…water, mimosas and a pink lemonade/sprite mix that was delicious!
I framed the shower invitation and used some navy paper to mat it. I used my mason jars as candle holders. The orange and white ribbon was tacked on with hot glue and then the navy ribbon is tied around loosely. There are little candles in the faux snow that burned during the whole shower and worked really well!
A close-up shot of the three frames. I had the silver and orange frame on hand. The navy frame is a 5×7 frame from the Dollar Tree that I painted with navy acrylic paint.
Custom sonogram frames can get pretty pricey so I cut out a shape to fit over the actual sonogram picture using more navy cardstock and wrote out baby’s name with a white marker. Once the shower was over, I transferred this to the DT frame so my friend could put it in the nursery. Her mother-in-law is helping her decorate the nursery so she was excited to have this, plus the banner, to put up as decorations.
