So I was an event planner in my pre-Corona life and you know what they say...once an event planner, always an event planner! This means that I love throwing a good party and see everything as possible party props and serving utensils. With our current products, it is like a treasure trove for me to re-think and re-imagine all the ways that I can use them for any event that I am throwing. I am currently in the process of helping to throw a baby shower for one of my really good friends (Rona babies is a real thing guys!). She is preggo with her very first baby and I couldn't be more excited for her. While she is having a baby gender reveal this Saturday (there will definitely be a blog post for this - I'm bringing my camera!), I have decided to proceed with the shower with a neutral spring green because it's just so pretty with all the trees surrounding me right now.
I didn't tell ya'll but I had ordered a sewing machine (my hobby addiction is strong). I have never sewed a thing in my life but I saw all these incredible people sewing masks for our intrepid healthcare warriors and I wanted to do something. Well, let me tell you, IT IS SO HARD!!! Not even the actual sewing...I am strictly talking about getting the thread through the machine! I literally spent morning to night for 3 days straight until I could make a mask. It took me a good week and it's not at all great but I did it! Since, I have hemmed the privacy curtains that I got for my little patio and made masks for everyone that I know, lol.
Anyways, back to the baby shower! I thought it would be super cute to make masks as a party favor with the double benefit of having them available for those women attending that would feel more comfortable within a small crowd. Aren't they cute guys? I mean, if you squint and don't look at the actual seams, they even look semi-competent.
Using our small crates for a centerpieces was a no-brainer. Did I ever share that I used to own a bakery? I will literally use anything for a cake/cupcake/mini dessert/mini food holder...our different sized crates had absolutely no chance! Celebrating with a good party is just what my soul needs right now and what better way than to celebrate a new life coming into this world. So while 2020 is not off to the best of starts, I am still, as always, hopeful for the future.
