it's a baby q!

i had so many fun ideas for our baby shower {thanks to many sleepless nights browsing pinterest} and finally landed on one! we didn't exactly want a traditional baby shower. we wanted to make sure there was something for everyone. guys, ladies and kids! we planned a vintage themed baby q and had everything from a photo booth, to a bubble machine, a kids corner with coloring books, a custom made corn hole set, {thanks dad!} a killer homemade bbq meal & our favorite...sprinkles cupcakes! it was a family planned shower and was so much fun to do together! from the decor to the food, everyone pitched in and made it an amazing day for us! thank you to everyone who came and for all of your sweet gifts. we are so grateful for the love you showed to our little family!

we made our own stencil for the corn hole.

my mom working on the center pieces in the background while dad prepped the corn
hole set for its first coat of paint.

...and it's done! how cute is it?! 

found these at the $1 section of target. i put them on skewer sticks and put them in a burlap wrapped vase with gerber daisies  for the table centerpieces. the burlap was an old moving blanket that my grandma and grandpa had for over 20 years. we cut it up and covered glass vases with it. cheap and easy!

mason jars and kraft bags stamped with a "C" that held the wooden forks. 

loved this idea from pinterest of old photos of us as kids. it was a fun way to
welcome the guests!

we made our own penant banner! a simple touch that really dressed up the fence.

this was my favorite thing we did! i made this on cardstock and entitiled it "wishes for cruz." all of our guests filled it
out. it was so fun to read them that evening! i cant wait to put them in a book for cruz to read when he gets older.

our photo booth props made from felt and skewer sticks! again CHEAP and easy. :)

found these buckets at the $1 section of target and dressed them up a little! looking back i probably should have used something bigger so we didn't have to refill so many times but i still love how they turned out.

opening gifts

photo booth fun! we made this photo booth with red polka dot fabric from joanns and found a super cute
app called "wedding booth" to create these pics on an ipad and stand! i loved that the guests could leave
us a message!
