Fridays at Home

30th September 2011

This weekend I am helping to throw my friend Amy a shower for her first baby. I am so excited and have been working on decor for the last couple of weeks. It’s been a mash of tissue paper, hot glue, ribbon, wire, and different colors of blue around here. After teaching today, I will run out to pick up some pre-made chicken salad to make sandwiches and use my super special recipe for some awesome punch. So here’s what I’ve been burning fingers and trailing cold strings of hot glue around for…

supplies...Martha Stewart, Hobby Lobby, Joann's

Ahh wire cutters. So helpful.

I’ve been using the image below for inspiration:

From the beautiful blog Style Me Gorgeous

Blue and white striped paper straws

Tissue paper flowers. Love these.

Then this was my inspiration for the corsages for the mom-to-be and grandmothers-to-be:

Found on Pinterest

And here are mine, using buttons, paper flowers hot glued onto floral wire and paper leaves:

I kind of can't stop looking at them... Hope Amy likes them!

So. There we are. I’ll try to take better pics and post this weekend. Wish me luck! Are you guys up to anything creative and/or homey today?
