"Bandanna Paper" Thank You Cards!

I finally found some energy to craft tonight! I went up to my craft room spent the first hour clearing off the table...and then didn't know where to start.

Looking through my printed paper I found some cute bandanna paper from Martha Stewart's Scrapbooking line at Micheal's. I decided to make a few monochromatic cards with a little Shabby Chic design.

To embellish the cards I used vintage lace & buttons, ribbon, flowers, and pearls. Find these adorable cards at my etsy shop With Love and Affection.

With Love,

Bree's Baby Shower!

Getting ready for baby Ella!
My friend Bree is expecting her first child on April 21st! I am so excited our little ones will be just four months apart. Today we celebrated with a Shabby Chic themed shower for Bree.

So glad I finally found a use for this beautiful birdcage. We used it for my wedding to hold the cards. It worked out perfect with a small flower and candles as the center piece.

I just love using these Gerber glass baby bottles as vases, they are the perfect touch for baby shower.

The Candy Buffet!
I love this idea! While searching for some creative party favors for the shower, I came across the idea of a Candy Buffet. The idea is to fill glass jars, apothecary jars, bowls, or pretty much anything else you have full of candy. Give the guest something to fill and let them create their own party favor to take home. For Bree's shower I used pastel candy that's in the stores for Valentine's Day and Easter. Her sister even ordered custom M&Ms....TOO CUTE!
For the guests to take home I decorated mini Chinese food boxes...stamped with Ella Grace!

One of my favorite decorations, I love this old box! My mom and I found it at Home Goods for seven bucks. I used a few old Mason jars from Joe's moms tomato canning and filled them with flowers. Perfect!

Bree, her mom Dawn, her sister Nicole, and Nicole's three daughters Hayliee, Regan, and Bristol.

Bree and I!
Bree is eight months pregnant and I am 18 weeks pregnant.
Can't wait for both our little ones to be here!

With Love,
