Sister-In-Law's Baby Shower!

My brother and his beautiful wife Lesley are expecting their first bundle of joy!  John Zane Ward is expected to join us at the end of May or early June.  I am over joyed to be an aunt for the first time!  I had the honor of throwing Lesley one of her baby showers with several other lovely ladies!  I started planning the shower last year!  HAHA!  I absolutely LOVE throwing a good party!  I took it upon myself to make several of the decorations!  So...without further adieu...enjoy the eye candy of Lesley's shower!

We used the canvas she made over the mantle, it went perfectly with our theme!

I used the Martha Stewart Owl Punch to make the adorable stir sticks!

My mom and I made this diaper cake.  We love how it turned out!!  It was SUPER easy to make, too!

We had a "Milk and Cookies" station!  Each hostess made a different cookie!


When guests arrived there was a little book that my mom and I made for them to leave a sweet note for the new family.

My mom put together this fabulous flower arrangement.  She's so talented!

The party favors were perfect!  Check out how Lesley announced they were expecting, here, and see why these favors were perfect!

We found this "ABC" block at Hobby Lobby and knew it would be perfect for a flower arrangement.  We used "All Occasion Florist" in Dallas and the exceeded our expectations, as always!

Using my Cricut I made this banner as well as the "Got Cravings" banner above.

I made her corsage w/ ribbon and a cute little wooden owl I found at Hobby Lobby.

Lesley w/ all of her hostesses.

This is what she wants Zane to wear home from the hospital. 
She has been referring to him as her "Handsome Little Man."

Her very talented cousin made her this amazing growth chart for Zane's room!

Mommy To Be is all ready for Zane to arrive!

Baby Bumps!

Love it! I love theme parties! I happened to have made owl cupcakes for my sons earth day program at school. Give a hoot! There are pictures and a How To under the Recipes tab of my blog. They would've looked so cute at the shower!
