Pin It!

My wonderful friend Megan had her baby shower this past weekend. It was so neat to see how many of her close friends worked together to create such a gorgeous shower. One of her friends created the entire dessert bar, one was in charge of the insanely beautiful succulent favors as well as all of the stunning bouquets, banners, table runners and beautifully handmade advice book, one friend catered sandwiches and salads, a few different friends were in charge of games, one friend brought balloons and I was asked to photograph the shower as well as create the signs that you'll see below (now in my Etsy shop). It was such a sophisticated event, just like the mama-to-be.

I also wanted to share of few pictures of Iva's gorgeous nursery! I created all of the prints and it was so neat to see them hanging on the walls.

Donut Bar Bridal Shower

Pin It!

Saturday was my best friend Kandi's bridal shower. What a fun time we had! We decided to go with brunch so we served VG's Donuts (hands down the best donuts I've ever had), bagels from Einstein's and fruit cups with a whipped topping. We had a mimosa bar with a couple different juice and berry options (thank you Kelly for providing an entire case of champagne and all the juices and berries!) I found a chalkboard label template online and made each guest a mason jar with their name. I bought the adorable straws with personalized flag from Angie Hearts Jared on Etsy. I made all of the chalkboard signs in photoshop and then had them printed at kinkos. I used spray adhesive to adhere them to poster board. I'm selling them in my Etsy shop! Kandi's mom made the gorgeous tassle banner out of yarn, and I made the Kandi & Matt banner using the bunting that I bought from Target and then printing enormous letters out of cardstock. My mom ordered gorgeous handmade soaps as favors, and we played a couple of games. I found the ENORMOUS 4 foot donut pool floatie at Paper Source (but bought it on amazon for $10 cheaper). I cut all of the donut garland from paper at Paper Source, and glued them onto glitter ribbon. We attached them to the enormous 36 inch balloons behind Kandi's chair (but I didn't get a really good picture at the shower so I'm sharing the pictures I took at my house before). I, okay my husband, made the gold sparkle K & M letters by buying paper mache letters and spraying them with gold glitter spray paint and then sprinkling gold glitter on top. My mom rented a helium tank so we could blow up close to 30 balloons (although you can't see many of them in the picures). There you have it. Wow, that was a mouthful.

Personalized Leggings Giveaway

Pin It!

Meet baby Kaiyanna.  
She is 18 months old and has been fighting cancer for 8 months.
Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor (AT/RT) brain cancer to be exact.
 Kai's story has touched me in a way that I have a hard time explaining. Perhaps it's because I have a daughter so close in age and seeing little Kai reminds me that this could happen to any child, no matter how young. It's so hard to watch a baby live out her life in a sterile crib hooked up to a million tubes. Kai's mom Teal has quit her job to be with Kai every day. They currently live in the Ronald McDonald house and their medical bills are currently a few million dollars. And while there is nothing I can do to help Kai with the nausea, fevers, surgeries, lethargy, feeding tubes, and painful procedures - I feel like I can help raise awareness and a few dollars.
I would like to giveaway one adorable pair of personalized baby leggings by Jennifer Ann!
They are my absolute favorite pair of Avery's leggings and the ones I will always hold onto. They are made of the softest material and you can choose between several different font and color options.
To enter to win is so simple. 
Instead of reposting an instagram picture, or liking a million different shops, you just need to donate $1 to Kai's fund. In the comments section of your donation make sure to write @amira143 somewhere. This is how I will keep track of entries and who has donated. Each additional dollar donated will count as an extra entry. So if you donate $5 it will count as 5 entries. For this reason, please make sure your donation is not kept anonymous or I will not be able to see it. Please also leave your instagam name or email address in the comments section so I know how to contact you if you win. 
 If you would like to spread the word about this giveaway it would be greatly appreciated but not required! 
The winner will be chosen next Monday May 5th.
