Thing 1 & 2 Couldn't Ruin This Shower
I made it to 38 without ever throwing a shower of any sort & recently the time came, I had to pony up for one of my dear friends, Rebekah. What’s funny is it was actually my husband’s idea and then he conveniently had a guy’s trip the weekend of the shower. No worries I can handle this! Thank goodness for my best friend Stacy, couldn’t have done it without her. I enjoy throwing parties & especially theme parties, so I’m not real sure why I’ve never been the chosen one for showers. Guess someone always beats me to the punch.
Since Pinterest is also one of my best friends the ideas were overwhelming, but one thing stood out, Dr. Seuss. There are so many directions to go with it & I think we hit them all. We had green eggs & ham, Dr. Seuss themed cupcakes, Cat in the Hat hats alternating strawberries & bananas and tomatoes & mozzarella, multi-colored goldfish plus a few other items thrown in to fill everyone up. We had a Cat in the Hat themed diaper cake that was just adorable. And I, of course, had to add my Georgia Dragonfly touch to the party in the form of party favors. Here are some photos from the party & of what I put together. As I always say, the possibilities are endless. This was fun because I could use an array of colors. They were such a big hit, that the poor mom-to-be didn’t even get one. Luckily, more can always be made.
I can’t wait for her little girl to be born & start growing hair so I can help add finishing touches with elastic hair ties, headbands & hair bows. Little girls are so fun!!
Purchased headband/hair ties sets for the FCHS Cross Country girls’ team. Girls loved them! Held their hair out of their faces as they ran the 3.1 miles at meets and looked great with their gold and black uniforms. The Tiger print headbands were a great touch. Added one more bit of flair to make sure folks knew they were a team. 🙂
I also bought hair ties for myself to match my running clothes as I go out and do my own runs. Love that I can color coordinate my hair with my clothes. Plus they are more gentle on my hair.
Thanks for the wonderful products.
