This is how you do a very cute shower with very little time and make it look like I spent hours. he he don't tell!
The first step is walk around your house collecting things that are in the color theme of the shower. In this case Pink and Gold I was also looking for book paper things and baby items (the last being in short supply see how my baby is almost 11)
I did acquire a darling carousel horse form a dear friend and painted it all out, Annie Sloane Paris gray. Its not finished yet, still waiting for some gold leaf and highlights in white..... but it was cute enough to drag to the shower. I'm telling you a bow will fix anything!!
The theme was "A story about to begin" so I dug through my book paper stash and found these ruffly charges I made to put under cookie plates a while back. I also spray painted one of my coveted wood boxes pink and I love love love it!! I now want to paint them all, I'm sure my cute honey who made them all would die, so I'll settle for one.
here is the little printable I made for the shower you can download it here.
ps adding a dot of glue to random dots and glittering in gold was D-darling!
