   Good afternoon!  Cold and wet here in Oklahoma.  Dinner is cooking, the coffee pot is full and I'm still waiting for the "blizzard" they say is coming.  We shall see!
   I am considering this my first "real" blog post!  I'm learning to add pics and all!  lol  After looking at many, many blogs, I am more intimidated than ever!  lol I want mine to look like some of them NOW-not after I have to take time learning everything!
   My daughter and I hosted my granddaughter's baby shower this past weekend.  It turned out really great and she got a lot of awesome things. I tried to make most of the decor and whatnot-just to personalize it for her. She was really happy with everything. : )
This is my beautiful granddaughter, Mallory. Baby Emma is due April 12th. I bought a large black and white bow and added the pink flower and ribbons.

I made her invitations.  She chose black and white damask and hot pink for the nursery so we went with that for the shower.

 I made the candy kiss stickers and wrapped Hershey miniatures for treats.

 These are print outs of her latest ultrasounds. I put one on the refreshment table and one on the gift table.

I made the trinket box with the chosen baby name on it from a recycled candy box.
These are cards I made her for her gifts.               
My daughter did the balloon bouquet. It turned out great!
I found the cupcake holder in the damask and Kari made the cupcakes.The forks are in a recycled can covered with damask wrapping paper.
   The following pics are miscellaneous ones from the shower. Everyone seemed to enjoy it and we got a lot of compliments on the decor!

 This was the first time I had done anything like this and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
And thank you to Kari for helping me!

  2. WOW Pam, not bad for your first post, LOVE the extra attention you paid to personalizing with the great photos! And boy the things you did with all the goodies paper crafting for the party are WONDERFUL! Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it all, be patient although I bet you're getting sick of hearing that. Customizing your blog will all be second nature to you before you know it :)
