I wanted his shower to match his room - gray & white with splashes of yellow and blue.
I just told my mom that I wanted the shower to go along with his room, and she pulled the entire thing together! We settled on the rice krispy treats as favors because they were affordable, cute, AND tasty. The invitations, tags, cupcake toppers, and printed garlands I made (and sell on my Etsy shop- The Pink Coconut). The cupcakes were made by www.seriouslycupcakes.com.

I love the "Welcome Baby Oliver" garland!
Use things you have around the house and borrow from friends. My mom didn't have to go out and buy much!
