From Monique... Our idea was born from Bump Smitten! We started with a woodland theme and found it evolved into more of a Boy Scout camping theme. The mother, Deidre MacDiarmid, was kept in the dark the entire time while we used Pintrest to gather our ideas. The hats were a DIY - made from vintage military garrison hats and a homemade "Boy Scouts of America" patch. All the patches were DIY and given away throughout the shower - like for the girl who traveled the furthest, or wrapped the best gift. We decorated onesies with vintage fabric and buttons and hung them from a line in the living room so the Mom to be could see them all. There was a special area where the guests could leave little notes to the baby and put them in a DIY box entitled "Wishes and Hopes." The cardboard moose's were designed and created by San Diego artist, Beckri Eguez. The photobooth was made from a vintage military pup tent, DIY fire, and DIY clouds that from Brass diaper pins. The food was catered by Clementine's located in Century City and the photographer for the afternoon was Stacy's husband, John. The entire event cost about $1,000 and hosted about 20 people.
