I LOVE to decorate and I LOVE babies and I LOVE a good party. So decorating for a baby shower is the PERFECT gig for me.
When a family friend asked me to help her decorate her daughter’s baby shower, my creative wheels started turning. The momma-to-be owns a ranch and loves horses…the nursery for her baby girl is even decorated in a cowgirl theme. So I took that idea and ran with it!
Bandanas, bails of hay, rope, burlap, mason jars, daisies… are you as excited as I was??
I only had 5 days to get the shower together, so I got busy!
I used bandanas, rope, and burlap to make banners for the shower. I also tied bandana strips and rope around large mason jars and used them as vases.
I had fun gift making as well. I made the sweet baby girl a freezer paper stencil onesie and a cute headband out of bandana. For the mother-to-be, I made a broach for her to wear at her shower. All of the guests who came to celebrate sweet baby Elisabeth were able to take home chocolate hats and boots that I made. (Thanks for the great idea Kassi!)
As the guests arrived, they signed a storybook for baby Elisabeth (cowgirl themed of course).
We used mason jars for drink glasses and I even tied bandana tags to them so that the guests could write their name on their beverage. Don’t you love the bandana monogram? I Mod Podged bandana paper to the wooden E and then added a burlap bow.
The mother-to-be’s best friend was there to help set up the decorations, which was a huge help.
My favorite part of the decorations that I made is that they can all be reused in the baby’s nursery. From the framed prints to the bandana banners and wooden signs, baby Elisabeth will have bits of the baby shower all around her room. LOVE that!
It was a beautiful shower and a beautiful day! I’m so glad I was able to be apart of the celebration!
Check out my little helper…
Just LOVE my baby girl.
Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you have a great weekend!
