Originally today I had scheduled to post my burlap entry from the One Month to Win It contest, but seeing how I came in dead last I don’t think that you will mind me delaying that project for just one more day, especially when you see what I have to share today!
Doesn’t the picture below look like something you would see in a magazine?
I can most definitely tell you that it is not from any magazine. At least not yet, because it should be. It is from a baby shower that I attended this past weekend.
It was incredible!
Nothing like I had ever seen in real life.
We even drank out of glass baby bottles!
The place settings were perfectly hand made.
The cupcakes were divine.
The gift table was matching.
I cannot say enough good things about all of this! The shower was held in honor of our good friend/honorary sister, Lauren. I was the only one lucky enough out of us Wray sisters to attend since I am the only one that still lives in town. Whitney and Lauren, you missed out!
Now I don’t claim to have a single thing to do with the design of this party. It all came from our very talented friend, Donna . I was dying to know how this all come about. I picked up a few things to share with you incase you are interested in creating a shower like this one someday.
First of all, the entire inspiration for this party were those tiny and adorable yellow shoes.
And I bet you’ll never guess what the tissue paper stands are made from… an old staircase! The rails were cut off and painted to match. Genius!!!
These tissue stand holders which sat on the food table were originally ornate candle holders. I believe one was already white but the other two were gold and black. Both were just painted to match.
A lot of the cupcake stands were just white plates with mini candle holders glued to the bottom.
These napkin rings were made out of tissue paper. Donna was generous enough to show me how they were made.
Are you interested in how these were created? Well I hope so, because I have the tutorial to share with you!!!
My final version is a little more eclectic than hers, because I was just using what I had on hand. You can still get the idea. So take a look at the tutorial!

Now you have the cutest napkin rings!
Well done Donna! And Congrats Lauren, we can’t wait to meet your little girl!
