Part #1 of Heidi's Baby Shower!

Welcome to my daughter Heidi's Baby Shower held this past weekend!
 Daughter Shelli and I had so much fun planning this special day for her! I have posted 3 posts for you to see it all and get some ideas! Here goes with post #1!
 I made this sweet journal for guest to sign and write in gifts given by guests and her thoughts.
We bought this large banner through Oriental Trading Company. Hung on the garage door to welcome guests.
Sweet diaper wreath we bought on Etsy!
Vintage shoes hanging on door handle.
Shelli made pastel pompoms here, there and everywhere!
A candy bar for the guest to package up a little Thank You token as they left.
This family bassinet is 77 years old! 21 babies in the family have used it starting in the 1930's!
Yes, Heidi was in it awhile back!
 Pictures before the guest arrived and food was out.
We had fun filling the centerpiece with baby supplies!
Baby garland from my Beehive Cottage Etsy shop!
Vintage flower planters from when I had my babies!
Little baby touches everywhere.
The other 2 posts are below! 
Keep strolling down!

Oh, it was soooo much fun!

Oh My Gosh!! What an amazing shower! The decorations and the food are over-the-top beautiful. But, I think my favorite has to be the little rubber duckies swimming in the blue punch. Too, too cute!

What a beautiful baby shower! All those vintage and just lovely baby themed touches throughout your house...I bet everyone had a blast. I love the yellow rubber duckies swimming in the blue punch too. How clever!

So stinkin' cute!!! I love it!!! I just gave my daughter a shower (girl to be arriving any time now) and I thought I did a good job!! You did a very good job. I ran into the problem of (1) not being able to have it at home and (2) because there were 80+ invited! My hubby has a big family and so does the daddy. You did good Maryjane!!! Enjoyed every picture!!

Wow, it that a party or is that a party!!! Fabulous decorating...I bet Heidi was blown away! Just lovely.

Debby said...

I love how you did everything. Guess what, I have a daughter named Heidi.
No, she isn't pregnant. Her little guy is almost two. I wouldn't mind if she was, of course.

Congratulations to the new addition on the way !What a fantastic shower !

C'est moi Claudette said...

OMG MJ, that really and truly is the sweetest baby shower I have ever seen. Of course having you as an amazing "mom" party organizer is worth a million bucks.
Of course the ducks, but the vintage baby planters, the wreath, the 3 tiers of baby goodies, the food, the little baby's in ice-cubs...so so cool. ALl of it.
You are the BEST.

What a beautiful shower you gave your daughter! She must have been so pleased and so proud to show off her mom's talents. You are amazing MaryJane! I shared your punch bowl picture on my blog today - hope you don't mind.

Debbie said...

Oh my Gosh!!! What clever ideas you and your daughter came up with! I've never seen a shower so amazing!! It's put together just perfectly. I'm so looking forward to seeing your next two posts. I have to say I'm totally gobsmacked!! I'm sure your daughter will cherish the memories of this shower for the rest of her life!!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Maryjane, What an all-out adorable baby shower! You must be loving "baby mode" right now. That door wreath is so cute!!!!! And all of those duckie touches everywhere! How fun!
Congrats to mommy and daddy to be! May this baby boy be blessed!
"And He grew in wisdom and stature and favor before God and men" Luke 2:52. I prayed this over my son 24 years ago and God honored this prayer that was first said about Jesus and even partly about Samuel. May this new little boy share in God's great blessing!

Oh My WORD Maryjane!! I'm speechless! The work you put into this is amazing and it takes my breath away with sweetness!! From the plates, to the decor, to every single tiny touch, absolutely amazing!!! I went back and saw the others and this will certainly be a day to remember forever!

I'm so in love with all your vintage images too! I would love to make those books in mini , how cute! Can you do some in 1" scale for me?? :) You have the best "eye" for the fabulous sweetie!
