a shower for carolyn

 On Saturday, October 29th, Jacque & I hosted a shower for Carolyn & her step-mom, Deena's house.  We had a lot of fun making decorations for the special event & coming up with fun games!

Jacque made the wreath above & I made the "Welcome Baby" banner.

 A mix of tie-dyed onesies for the baby & some of my boys' old baby clothes for the clothes line.

 Jacque made ruffled streamers & a chart for guests to guess the birth-date & gender of the new baby.

 Some dot garland (I got the idea from here) & more ruffled streamers.

 We asked guests to write down their "wishes for baby" to give to Carolyn.  You can find the free printable here.

 The guest of honor & her husband:
Carolyn & Jesse.

 Carolyn's mother-in-law, Maureen, & step-mom, Deena, setting up the food.  Deena made all of the food, with help from Maureen & Carolyn's mom, Debbie.  It was nice to share the jobs!  :)



 Carolyn's college roomies, Mandy with baby Ava & Annie, traveled from Washington & California to be at the shower!

 Opening gifts.

 Jacque, Carolyn & me

 I followed this tutorial to make fabric alphabet refrigerator magnets for baby Williams to play with (or drool on for awhile).  ;)
