Tissue Poms- Sweet and Savy Designs and Create and Adorn
Let's see... I rented the coffee urn, white bowls, white platters, coffee cups and tablecloths from Eventures. Cookies were from Paul's Bakery in Van Buren. Tissue poms from Etsy. Sign above the table was designed by my husband and printed by Pac Printers in Van Buren, as well as the invitations. I ordered the cupcake wrappers from The Cupcake Social. All the printables...cupcake toppers, napkin rings, water bottle labels, food labels, and pictures in the frames were all designed by my husband, Nic. We own a wedding videography company called NILO Productions so he is very well versed in Photoshop. (This is how we know Jenessa)
My sister has 3 little boys already and was pregnant with her 4th! I knew this would be her last shower so I wanted it to be really good. :) All of her boys love this book and she and I grew up with it too. I was just trying to think of a cute book for a boy shower (could have been girls too I guess) that had something to do with mothers. It is her 3rd son's favorite book, and he was SO excited that he got to hang the sign in his room afterward!
I just used the colors of the book...aqua, red, brown, yellow.
We made all of the food ourselves with the exception of the cookies... including a hot chocolate bar with candied orange peel, cherries, heath bar, marshmallows, peanut butter chips, and andes mints.
The risers for the platters are shipping boxes that came from my school (I'm a teacher) that I wrapped with solid wrapping paper from Target and ribbon from Michaels.
OH! I also found a company on Etsy that uses old, used books to make Journals. They made one for Are You My Mother and I used that for a guest book-write wishes for Baby Jude.
I'm not sure what pictures Jenessa gave you, the files are really big and I have to send them one at a time. I'll send you what I have.
Thanks so much!!!!! It just thrills my heart that you want to feature it!
