Ashley's Baby Shower

This past weekend, some of the girls in my SS department and I threw a shower for our friend Ashley. She is decorating little Cooper's room with a vintage baseball theme, so that's what we ran with for the theme of the shower. It was a lovely afternoon, and from what I saw of the gift opening, she got a ton of great stuff.

When we decided on a theme, I immediately called my dad for shower decorations. He used to run a youth fall baseball league and had a couple of cases of balls for the borrowing. Brad's glove rounded out the sign-in table. I used my apothecary jars with more baseballs and some of Brad's old baseball cards up on the mantle. While he was collecting these "back in the day," I'm sure never in his wildest dreams did he think they would someday function as baby shower decor. Now I'm glad I didn't make him sell everything in the garage sale when we married.

I've been on a crafty kick lately, and one of my projects was this banner.

I can't say enough good things about the cake! I ordered it from Creative Memories over the phone, and it turned out exactly as I had hoped. They did a great job and were easy to work with.

Congratulations Ashley & Chris! We can't wait to meet Cooper!
