Recently I had to the privilege of co-hosting a baby shower for a sweet friend. My part was decorations so I have a few ideas to share with you - and as always they are budget friendly and super easy.
Our color theme was hot pink and lime green and we were working with a rather
ugly barren and large space (aka our church's fellowship hall). I feel like I've set up a thousand events in this room and it always seems daunting to me. At the room entrance we had a little table set up for guests to fill out advice cards for the mom to be. I used a glass jar I already owned and just jazzed it up a bit with a little ribbon and pretty paper and a monogram - when all else fails just add a monogram, instant adorableness.
Instead of flowers I used tissues poms and pinwheels. They have adorable pink pinwheels with polka dots in the Target dollar section right now...although I did not get a picture of those during my fury of decorating and chasing a toddler. I also picked up a few of these round table place mats at Target to add a little pop of color.
I added a little sand and a candle to these little metal pails and also found these cute sparkly letters in the craft section at Target.
Also, I diy-ed a chalkboard from a $2 thrift store frame. This flower photo was printed on a particle board type material so it was easily paintable.
I just spray painted a couple coats of primer and then a couple of coats of chalkboard paint.
My edges around the inside of the frame didn't come out as crisp as I wanted (I may have rushed it a bit and not used tape). So I just pulled out the twine and hot glued it around the edges to hide the imperfections. I actually ended up really loving the twine detail. This was such an easy and inexpensive project!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!
