cute as a button.

a few days ago i had blogged about some supplies for a craft.

well, it wasn't so much a craft as much as it was a party. a baby shower for my dear friend krystal {baby girl due in august!} . i was in charge of decorations, which really got my creative juices flowing!

pink and brown were the colors, and the theme was "cute as a button".  the centerpieces i made were mason jars spray painted pink, wrapped with burlap & ribbon, and fastened with hot glue and buttons.  mason jars make for adorable vases and they are pretty cheap. i know that whenever evan and i get into a nicer place where i can paint and decorate a little more, im going to make myself some mason jar vases!

i made the name tags with a paper punch, scrap book paper, bar pins & buttons. it was fast, cheap, and easy! i simply glued the buttons to the scrap book paper cut outs & attached that to bar pins {i got the bar pins at hobby lobby}. for a little extra pizzaz, i made a burlap flower for krystal's name tag!

what would a party be without tissue paper pom poms? i had never made these before and i was surprised how easy it was! i'll put on a tutorial soon {i got mine off of pinterest}, but all you need is tissue paper, wire, and fishing line.

lastly, on the gift table we had a chalk board with a burlap banner on it.  i cut out seven triangle shaped pieces of burlap in alternating colors {didn't even measure them}, and glued them to a piece of twine that was about two inches longer than the board on each side. i added fabric bows on each end to hide where the twine was fastened, and simple wrote in chalk the quote that was on the invitations {cute as a button & sweet as can be}.

 the night was fantastic. it was so fun to help out with decorations, bless krystal, & celebrate the new life that the lord is about to bless the fox family with! congratulations krystal, love ya girl!
