MY VINTAGE GIRL BABY SHOWER

Vintage Baby ShowerTheMarshmallowStudio24

Not going to lie, this post is to show off my mom’s skills and hard work.

She surprised me with a baby shower a few weeks before I was due with our third baby. She was way too excited about having a grand daughter that she went all out for this shower.

The theme was “Vintage Baby Girl”.

My mom is old-school. She hand-makes EVERYTHING including making homemade food and desserts. No catering here people. Oh and did I mention that her parties are never under 100 people?!

Yeah, she’s nuts!

She doesn’t have a fancy die cutter machine or stencils so she drew baby clothes on scrapbook paper and cut out these cute little baby clothes for the centerpieces.

Guests were welcomed with a hanging baby clothes line. She thinks of EVERYTHING!

Kyle and I felt very humbled and grateful for everyone’s generosity and especially for my mom’s love. My dad and sister were a huge help too and we truly appreciate their hard work.

My mom is such an amazing and talented woman. I hope to one day be just half as wonderful as she is.

Here’s to a great woman, my mom who is now going to have a little grand daughter to pass on her awesomeness too :)
