For my sister's baby shower this weekend, I have a few projects up my sleeve. The shower is going to be at our parents' house, already making it rather intimate. The house is not a big one, so the 25 people attending will totally fill it up- meaning that not a lot of decoration is required to make it feel personal. Good. After B's bridal shower, I didn't have the energy for another big set of projects. The main projects are garlands to decorate the fire place mantle and above the food table. Naturally I decided to revisit the circle garland that I blogged about here. I tried a different approach and managed to make an easy project even easier!!
Thank you, Bernette!
Bernette is my trusty sewing machine. All I had to do was to feed my punched circles into the machine one after another and in 15 minutes flat, I had all the circle garland that I needed! It had a slightly different look (with the spacing) than my first go at the garland, but I really like both, and they're amazingly simple.
The next garland challenge was to try and create some ruffle streamers following this tutorial. Check!
Menu Board (made with roadside found frame): in progress
Picture holders: in progress (we asked all the guest's to bring a baby picture so we can have fun guessing)
I know it looks a bit random right now, but just you wait. I totally see it in my head, and its fabulous!
I do have fun doing stuff for showers, but boy will I be glad when it's over and I can relax for an evening. Maybe I'll even work out a bit. Maybe.
