Watching the gifts being opened
The mom-to-be deep in baby related conversation
I made a few examples so that I could have something to show the girls and so that I could make very clear instructions.
Example 2 Front
Example 2 Back
I set up a few different stations around the house with instructions at each point hoping to curb some of the chaos.
I had a table full of scissors, cookie cutters (to use as stencils), stamps, fabric markers, stencils, and paper. Let the mess and creative juices FLOW!
There was a table with an iron, but that part wasn't interesting in a picture.
I was SO impressed with what these girls created!
Here is a picture of all of the completed onesies together
Since they turned out SO cute, I have to share some close-ups!
A mermaid! Brilliant.
This one looked store bought! (front)
What's cuter than little designs on the patootie? (back)
The mom-to-be hand drew this little elephant for Eleanor! (front)
Eleanor already has LOTS of siblings, they just happen to be the four legged kind. I made this onesie with her animal loving daddy in mind. (front)
Can't resist a little booty bling! (back)
The shower was a huge success and everyone had a great time. It was definitely a labor of love and I really enjoyed putting my creative talents to work. Party planning/throwing happens to be one of my favorite things. I just LOVE seeing the honoree's reactions and hearing everyone's little comments about decor or treats. It makes all of the late night cutting and pasting worth it.
Plus... I can't wait to see little Eleanor in our couture creations!
