Baby Shower!

Good morning all - It's nice and sunny, but still cold, here this morning.  I always enjoy the sun shining through the windows to warm up the house.

I have several projects going today, but wanted to share the pictures of the baby shower we put on this past Saturday, for our oldest son's wife, Stephanie.  They are expecting a little girl in less than a month.  There haven't been any little girls in our family in over 20 years, so this is a very special time and boy, did I have fun 'being girly'.  Steph has picked owls as her nursery theme, so I ran with that idea for the shower as well.

The quilt I made for Steph

Let the feasting begin - love the pinks and purples

Happy Mommy to be, Stephanie
The mantel laden with decorations, favors and some of the gifts

Little bags of lavender soap that we made, with vintage baby girl tags, to give to the guests

I think she likes the quilt!
The owl cake I made.  I doubted whether I could craft the toppers, so Maria, our other daughter-in-law, helped to make the trees and owls out of foam board...aren't they cute

I even colored the inside of the cake pink and light green.
We had a wonderful day!

I wanted to remind everyone who joined the Pin Keep Swap that your packages are due for mailing on this Friday, March 1st!
