My dear friend, Theresa, is expecting her first baby in August. She and I went through alot together in our single days, wondering if we would ever meet Mr. Right and ever have kids!
Theresa is a teacher with me. Yesterday was our last day, even though the kids got out May 28, the teachers had to work contracted days due to the ice storm. Needless to say, we were excited to get finished and a baby shower was the perfect way to start our "summer"!
Theresa and Buzz know they are having a little girl and her name is Sophia Jane. Her room is yellow with baby animals. I decided to go with a yellow and brown shower theme from this little diaper bag tag I got from Sweet Pea Designs (I can hook you up with a dealer!) The back of the tag says "my mommy is Theresa ..."!
The yellow and brown theme continued with fellow teacher, Leigh Ann, whipping up a fabulous banana pudding complete with animal crackers instead of vanilla wafers. I made chocolate cupcakes with yellow icing, decorated with brown sprinkles as suggested on Everyday Celebrating (a fellow Sigma Kappa from UK).
Whoppers, Cracker Barrel banana candy sticks, and lemon drops in mason jars with ribbons continued the color theme. For favors, Olivia and I made animals crackers smothered in yellow icing for the kiddos. The adults got sprinkle tins and the idea came from Creative Parties and Showers. They read "thanks for sprinkling Theresa with love" and had candy sprinkles inside.
Theresa is a government and archeology teacher. I wanted to make her some personalized onsies - these sayings captured her just right! I used printable iron on transfers and designed these in Publisher.
The water bottles were decorated with little babies - made with my new Cricut! I had the flavored packs in mason jars for everyone to flavor their drinks as they wished.
Theresa and Buzz - you two are going to be great parents!
