A Baby Shower to Cry About


Recently I held a baby shower for a dear friend Emily.  I wanted it to be perfect because she is one of those once-in-a-lifetime friends who is always so supportive.  I wanted to show my love and support in return.  Luckily the blog world is full of creative individuals.  

So, I contacted Keren, from Free Pretty Things For You.  She created a personalized vintage-inspired paper decor collection for the baby shower!  Including a banner reading "BABY ELLY", water bottle labels, cupcake , invites, and "thank you" cards for the mama.  I could not have been more pleased!  I chose pink and green as the colors, and dots and stripes as the patterns.   It turned out perfectly!  The mom-to-be even cried.  And yeah, I admit that made me feel good.  They were tears of joy okay!

You can see the set I used {here}.  And you can see more of Keren's personalized party collections on her Etsy: Pretty Things For You.  And stay tuned for a SURPRISE (just for you) tomorrow!
