We continue to lead up to the baby shower I hosted yesterday. I have had a hard time knowing how to present it to you because I’ve wanted to give guidance, for those who are interested, on how to do some things so you can replicate it. That said, I don’t want to drag it out forever. Today, I’ll just reveal to you some of the details and do a bonus post on how to do the napkin fold we did.
I have more clear instructions on how to make polka dot streamers on another post. I just wanted to show you how fun it can be with different monochromatic papers. Ultimately, all you do is you a circle puncher to punch out all the papers and then you sew them together. We alternated them with fuzz ball yarn to give a really fun, playful look. With the circle cutter, the girls can be really helpful. With me by his side, Corban was able to join in the fun too.
We found some great remnant fabric to make some beautiful table runners. Glad I learned how to do mitered corners. I hope you’ll click through to that tutorial.
We found some great fabric to make the napkins. I’ll do a separate post to teach you this napkin fold. I also found these fabulous rectangular plates and dessert plates at Party City.
Kenzie helped me make these Pink Lemonade Cookies I found at Cherished Bliss. They were really easy to make with only three ingredients. The texture was different than I’m used to in a cookie because it’s made of cake mix. However, if you like strawberry cake, then you’ll love the flavor.
There ya go. There’s just a handful of the preparations that have led up to the baby shower I’ll be posting about tomorrow. My biggest emphasis, of course, is that there are so many ways to get your kids involved in the things you enjoy. I never force it though. Notice Kenzie’s the only one in the kitchen in the bottom. Abby was outside hanging out with dad.
