Real Baby Shower: Daisy Grace

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Love this handcrafted, vintage baby shower, submitted by party enthusiast and mommie-to-be, Tara Saunders and photographed by her good friend, Ilene of Glass Half Full. Tara thought of everything... a cute eye spy game, lovely daisy seed favors and super adorable cupcakes! Pulling ideas from Martha Stewart and Bump Smitten, she was able to put together this fun event filled to the rim with good food, good friends, and most importantly, a good time.

From Tara... I'm due August 10 with a little girl. Her name will be Daisy Grace. The shower was at my mother's house in Greensburg, PA. I love to decorate and throw fun partys so I wanted to plan it my way - I know, not completely traditional or stress free for mom-to-be :) My sister-in-law, Layce, also helped with the planning. My husband, Jason's, family made the food. A friend (Ilene - also the photographer) and myself made the cupcakes after we took a few cake decorating classes. My husband and I own a print shop (Metal Photo Service, in Wall, PA) so I was able to make the invites, game cards & food tags myself. I also drew the image for the daisy seed packets that I gave as the favor. My mom collected the vintage flower pots from thrift stores and some we had at our homes already. She also did the flower arrangements in them...guess what kind of flower - daisys! My mom and I also made the tissue flowers. We followed the directions from http://www.marthastewart.com/how-to/tissue-paper-pom-poms-how-to they were a bit time consuming and use a lot of tissue, but you end up with a cute finished product! I got the idea for the water in canning jars from one of the showers that I saw on Bump Smitten! Everyone loved it!
