Last week I showed you maternity picures for my friend Abbe. This week I am showing you the baby shower. Her baby girl was due at the end of August.
I was in charge of the decorations and table ware. Oh.. and the cupcakes of course!
We decided on a ‘Cute as a button’ theme. All the normal pastel baby colors.
I bought everything else at the dollar store. NO Judging! I can do a cute party from the dollar store. I’m sure I would make my grandparents proud! For the record.. I did not buy her gift at the dollar store ;) But I will be doing another post on that later.
