This Sunday I hosted a baby shower for a good friend. I can't say how appalled I was at the selection of baby shower decorations stores carried. I must have gone to 15 stores and all I found was these themes of silly little baby animals or tiny footprints in all pink or all blue. I have never been one to like things to be too generic. I much prefer home-made to store bought any day. This led me to find other alternatives for decorations. I searched online and found that Martha Stewart had a paper pompom do-it-yourself project that looked really cool. In her version they were completely round as they were being hung from the ceiling. I found that you could do them with a flat bottom to act as a table top flower. Check it out... oh yeah and here is the link to Martha's instructions. They took about 8 minutes to make a piece. But let me just say how relaxing it was to make them... and the finished project is so pretty that you just need to sit back and admire them for a minute.
I made little flowers to pin on the guest of honor and the mini guest of honor- Addison ;)
