Baby Shower – party planning series

Babies are popular and so are baby showers! Today I start a series of videos showing you how to create a successful baby shower.

The first step is to decide what theme your baby shower will be. I chose a Safari or Jungle themed as the mommy-to-be is having a boy.

The first video will show you how to make the invitation. The themed colors are green, chocolate brown, yellow and orange.

Here are some pictures of the shower:

Mermaid Themed Party

I have been a busy bee creating this Mermaid themed party. I used Christmas decorations (yes those are Christmas ornaments from Kholes) to hang around. I also used metallic mesh fabrics as well as black mesh bought at my local fabric stores. I decorated the goodie bags with the mermaid from Life is a beach cartridge. I also used the crab from the same cartridge. The invitation (featured as a thumbnail on the video) was also done with the Life is a beach cartridge. I also used the coral from SVGCuts.com (the Wet and Wild collection).
