Lindsey Martin... Since the baby's room was decorated ever so cutely in a nautical theme, Christina, the mom-to-be, and I decided to use that idea as the basis for the shower. And oh my goodness, if I ever have a boy, this WILL be the theme for his room, too! The possibilities are endless!
Our amazingly talented friend, Chelsi, designed these invitations, and I absolutely LOVED them.
She added clever lines such as "join us as we drench the parents with gifts", "the party will set sail
at ...", and "captains of this voyage are Christina and Lindsey." Flags were cheap and easy to make with lollipop sticks and craft paper. Wishing I had done a better job with the food signs...shouldn't be see-through. Anchor sign was made with the same scrapbook paper as the cupcake flags... Christina made the BEST coffee punch (decaf) that we named "Pirate's Potion". The cup stickers are from
Office Depot, 300 for $13!
Game time! Christina came up with the cutest game where everyone split up into two groups and cut features from magazines to create a picture of what they thought little Seth would look like. I wish I had a picture of the finished products...they were really good and oh so hilarious! And, of course, the winning team won a bag of lifesavers. (Banner made with scrapbook paper as well.) Christina found some small, wooden wheels and anchors at Michaels craft store that we used as decorations for the banner and a necklace for Kristen. Super adorable!
