Baby showers are just so much fun! This has been such an exciting time for my family. As many of you already know, my brother and sister-in-law are expecting their little baby girl Savannah in October. You know Auntie Nikki just had to host the best baby shower ever! With the help of some wonderful ladies we put together a beautiful celebration. I hope you enjoy this blog post along with the video where I share all of my baby shower planning tips and ideas.
I made these popcorn cones out of simple scrapbook paper. You can see the finished results in the video below. It was such a fun addition to the dessert table.
The cake topper just melted my heart! It was made from fondant so it is totally edible. I ordered it from a Etsy store called AnaFeke. She does such an amazing job!
I just love those spandex chair covers. They were so easy to use and no ironing! They were compliments of Tamara Hundley Events in Charlotte, NC. They offer a great variety of items for your party planning needs.
If you missed my video on how I made the baby shower invitations you can watch it HERE.
I kept the centrepieces very simple and affordable. The little bears came from the dollar store. I made the table numbers myself and the branches were compliments of my backyard.
My friend Kaye from the YouTube cooking channel CookingWithKaye handled all the baby shower food. She prepared a beautiful menu! Definitely check out her channel for some great recipes.
I made these labels for each of the platters on the food table. We came up with creative names for the baby shower food. For the Chicken Salad Spinach wraps we called them "Wrapped In Savannah".
I used real glass baby bottles for the coffee condiments such as sugar, creamer etc.
My sister-in-law's dear friend Ta Hia did such a wonderful job with all of the baby shower games. She actually handmade these beautiful mini diapers to pin on all guest. Whoever had a dirty diaper won a prize!

Recently I completed a review on the Deluxe Mopnado. It is truly a fabulous mop system. In my review I mentioned that the size was a bit larger than I preferred along with I would love to have had it in the color green. Well Mopnado was listening and they were so very kind that they sent me their Compact Foldable Spin Mop in lime. I love it! It is compact and easy to store and does a great job mopping my floors. I have been getting so much great use from this system and love having it in my home.
I just love decorating my home. What I love even more is decorating my home on a budget. I feel like there are so many resources available to affordably decorate your home. I recently teamed up with two other YouTubers HayleysWifeStyle and MommyGoodness to bring our 5 favorite decor items on a budget around our homes. I hope you will enjoy my video where I share my favorites. Please also be sure to check out Hayley's and Carol's video. Hope you all are having a great week so far.
Do you love baby showers as much as I do? It feels so special to celebrate the birth of a new child. It is especially wonderful when that child is someone close to you. I am currently planning a baby shower for my brother and sister-in-law. They are expecting their bundle of joy (who name happens to be Savannah) in October. Today I had so much fun creating the invitations for the shower. I share my journey with you in the video below. I hope you will enjoy.
Online shopping is the way to go these days. With many of us having such busy schedules and tons of daily demands and responsibilities we need time savers in our lives. Shopping online is such an efficient way to get those items we need in our home on a regular basis (without the hassle of going to the store). P&G was so gracious that they sent me a $100.00 gift card to www.walmart.com to experience purchasing household items online. In the video below I share that experience with you along with why I love shopping online. Hope you find it helpful and enjoy. Please also be sure to enter the giveaway below for a $25.00 walmart.com gift card which is compliments of P&G.
There is nothing better than a delicious milk shake. The summer just brings out this beautiful dessert. This week I teamed up with the beautiful Rosie from the blog and YouTube channel I Heart Recipes. We decided to each share one of our milk shake recipes with our readers and viewers. It was such a fun and delicious collaboration. So for my video I decided to share my yummy Key Lime Milk Shake. I just love anything key lime, so it worked out perfectly. I hope you enjoy the video and will also enjoy Rosie's Pineapple and Passionfruit milk shake video. Enjoy!
It has been one busy week around my house. Even with it being a very busy week I was able to squeeze in some home tips. I learned some really neat tips this week and I could not wait to share them with you. I hope that you will enjoy the video and that you have been having a wonderful week.
I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth Of July. We really had a beautiful and relaxing day with great friends. I put together a quick and simple tablescape this year on my back porch. I was excited to share with you how it turned out. My friend Kaye who just recently moved to Charleston made the macaroni and cheese that you see featured in the video below. It was so very delicious. She did a video about it on her channel which is CookingWithKaye. I hope you enjoy seeing my tablescape and Fourth Of July meal.
