A couple of my latest party decorations

COCALO JUNGLE SHOWER

My best friend just had a baby, and just before she was able to come up to Edmond from Abilene for a few of us to throw her a shower. Her bedding is this same jungle print by CoCaLo. 
I found printables online at www.monkeyhutdesigns.com.

The drink station had water and Tropical Punch Cool Aid - the mommy's pregnancy craving.

I forgot to get a picture of the penant garland I made actually at the shower, so here it is in my garage. This hung across the fireplace mantle above the gifts. 
Don't judge the pic.

DIAPER SHOWER

This shower was for my friend Amy, who is having a little boy in June. She joked about a diaper themed shower, so that is what she got. With some lime green and blue to go with it.
Please excuse my un-ironed table cloth. Yikes!

This lovely centerpiece was interesting to come up with. I had some help. By someone in my house. You should already know that I am the only girl in my house. I am not allowed to say any more.
These are supposed to be diaper balloons. If I do this again I will go out and get something more sturdy to attach them to, instead of skewers (which I already had, but were probably too light). I still think it's pretty cute. Plus, the mommy-to-be got to take it apart and take it home!


Cupcakes made by Ashley Myers




We gave her a double stroller, and of course I had to add some diapers to go with it's 'wrapping'.



And, the diaper garland.

You are pretty fabulous with all those decorations!! I kinda want to have another baby so you can decorate something for me. And...I'm curious...which one is your friend from Abilene? I'm from Abilene! I just wonder if our families know each other.

My friend, Anna Forrester Perrey, is actually from Edmond, but they live in Abilene now.
I'm always up for decorating, Alyssa...:)

I hear-by extend an open invitation for you to come decorate my house any time you like. Doesn't have to be a holiday or anything either! Like, if you want to decorate, I-dunno, maybe a living room -- or an entry way -- or a dining room -- or a guest bedroom -- or a kitchen (just spitballing here!) you are invited to have a ball. No, I will not pay you. It can just be something fun for you to do.... right?
