Lime-Time Baby Shower

A girl in our ward that I visiting teach, just adopted her second little boy...who is just precious. I was lucky enough to help host her baby shower. We did all the decorations in shades of lime greens, black & white. It was so fun, because it's been forever since I've hosted a baby shower.
I decorated the front door by adding lime green berries to my wreath on the front door.Making diaper cakes for the serving table centerpiece is my favorite. Such a cute, classy addition to a baby shower. With this one, I added the baby's first initial as the cake topper. My friend Emily helped by making these adorable black & white tissue paper pom-poms. I wish I could take credit but I tried & tried to make them and they would NOT turn out. Emily SAVED me!! I made a couple of cute custom banners out of scrap book paper in the shower colors. I also made one out of these ADORABLE green onesies that I found at the Dollar Tree.Here is a look at the green candy table we put together for the shower guests to take home as a favor. I found all of the green candy at Wal-mart or Target. I borrow the apothecary jars from some friends and then added the ribbon and flowers to them to dress them up. These are the cute buckets I found for the guest to fill with candy. Of course from The Dollar Tree. They were 3 for $1. Then my friend Cadi made the adorable "Thank you" label and tied it to each bucket.Here is a full view. I got the cute green lanterns at the Dollar Tree as well.
