March 8th,we had the school shower for Brandi at my house. Brandi has a nature theme for her nursery so I
chose birds for the theme of the shower. She and Adam have chosen not to find out the gender of the baby so I made two italian creme cakes...one with a nest with blue eggs and one with a nest filled with pink eggs. The nests are made of chow mein noodles, almond bark, toasted coconut and eggs are jelly beans.
I found the bird cages at Joanne's and the cute little birds were purchased at Dollar Tree!
Brandi consumes a lot of bottled water so bottled water was a must. I used some printer paper(also found at Dollar Tree) that I had left from her invitations that Jaime made for her while she was visiting and covered the bottles. I removed the label first.
Several teacher friends contributed food and it made a great combination of sweet and savory foods. Thanks ladies for help!
Well it has been almost a month since my last post...I've been busy. Jaime, Carter, and Olivia came to visit for two weeks. My evenings were spent playing with Carter, holding Livie and visiting with Jaime. Then since they left, I've been working on the shower for Brandi. Now I can blog again. Spring break starts Friday afternoon so I'm looking forward to a week of doing nothing in Florida with Vickie. Expect posts for the next few days!
