Newsies Baby Shower!

 Jayna's Baby Shower Extravaganza

We threw Jayna a "Newsies" themed baby shower and everything turned out soooo cute! Christy & Kallie planned the whole thing! They made decorations and gathered all the props needed. Christy and Kallie are so creative! They bought cute antique shoes, hats, marbles, etc. They had planned to have more vintage toys there but at the last minute the lady bailed on her who had the toys. But it was so cute we didn't miss them. Christy had bought an old record and had it playing on her record payer. They fixed a photo booth with cardboard props and picture frames to hold up. We had an Italian Soda bar. Christy bought this old oak cradle on Craigslist and sanded it and painted it this gorgeous aqua color. It's actually a little more green than this picture shows. I helped her make the bedding. I sewed the bumper pad without the cradle (that was fun). Christy found vintage style Cracker Jacks [at Walmart of all places!] to hand out as thank yous. We had red, aqua, and white balloons, a big sign that is so funny with the Haws family in news stories. Kallie and her sweet sisters Addie and Megan made this adorable diaper cake! We made ruffle tablecloths, had bread bowls with 4 kinds of soup, fruit kabobs, veggies and dips, cupcakes, etc, etc. The list goes on and on. It was GORGEOUS!!! We had about 26 people there and Jayna's dear friend Allison came clear from SC to be here! 

we missed seeing these two cute girls dance their little hearts out! Having their recitals on the same day as the baby shower - we just couldn't get there! But they are just ADORABLE! Poor Caroline dance all day without feeling well..... a true little dancer!

That baby shower was amazing - good work to you and Christy and Kallie and all of the other helpers! I was so glad I could come :).
