"Cute as a Button" was the theme for the shower.
It all started with a book of scrapbook paper with fun orange, yellow and pink colors. I then found a pack of buttons at the same craft store that matched the paper perfectly. From there on and the help of my family, everything fell into place.
Modern, fun and eclectic
I created the invitations from scrapbook paper. There were a total of 5 different invite designs- it was fun to not have them all the same. The sign in table centerpiece was a vase wrapped in ribbon I found at a craft store and the branches were a find at a discount store. I glued silk orchid flowers to them for color and filled the bottom of the vase with matching flowers I found at Michaels. The sonogram pictures were decorated with scrapbook items and will later go in a scrapbook with the comment cards. I found the decanters on clearance at a Home Store and added the ribbon and drink cards from left over card stock I had from the invitations. Same with the meal cards, they were created from left over card stock.
I love the centerpieces that my cousin put together. We found the streamer idea in a Martha Stewart magazine. It gives the vase added color. She also did the cake and cupcakes- love the fondant button details.
Pay attention to detail~ small details go a long way!
