Christmas outside our home…

Welcome!

This weekend I picked up winter garland to decorate our picket fence out in front of our home and hopeful to see lights added to it by the end of the holiday season!

We added a little to the back patio…

I’m sure I’ll be adding more, but enjoying taking my time decorating this year!

Baby Shower…

Today we had a baby shower for our upcoming granddaughter, Berklee!  Her arrival date is less than a month away and we couldn’t be more thrilled!  Even though it’s a very busy time of year, our entire family graciously attended to celebrate with us with the same joy and excitement! I wanted to share with you a few photo’s from the shower…
I had so much inspiration that I found on Pinterest, however none of the ideas turned out like the photo’s I pinned…anyone else have that same experience? But I do love how the décor turned out for our celebration!
I love the “B” that I found at Michaels Craft Store

These hanging fans were found at the Paper Source along with the confetti sprinkled on the table.

This beautiful cake was customized by a friend of mine.

Our guests took home customized cookies that were ordered from Zazzle. We had them customized using a favorite photo from a maternity photo shoot with Courtney Irene-Marie Photography. I was so impressed how easy the entire process of ordering these cookies was for me!  Uploading the photo to placing the order – so easy! You can customize pretty much anything!

The cookies arrived beautifully packaged for gift giving if I would have decided to do so.  Each cookie was individually wrapped making it easy for our guests to take home!IMG_7745IMG_7757IMG_7753
 
 
These cookies were definitely a darling addition to the baby shower and delicious too!
 
 
 
Such a beautiful day filled with family and gorgeous decorations for the mom to be!  Just can’t wait to meet our little “B”.  Thanks for coming by to see the photo’s of our family baby shower!
