Jessica's Baby Shower, Ahoy it's a Boy!

 Hi there Bloggers, I'm sharing photos from my Daughter, Jessica's, baby shower that I hosted  2 weeks ago at my home. She's having a boy so we settled on the theme "Ahoy, it's a boy!". I did borrow some ideas from pinterest but some things were my idea. These tags that I put on the favors were all me! I used a Waltzingmouse stamp set that matches a spellbinder die.  Name of Waltzingmouse stamp unknown. Then I used a Stampin Up nautical stamp set and used the anchor image, stamped off once so the red wouldn't be too bright. I wanted to stamp the Flourishes Thank you sentiment over it in Momento TB ink. (Tag Lines set). I punched a hole in the tag and tied some bakers twine around the cello bag that was stuffed with Lindor Truffles and white paper shreads. I wanted something simple.
 This is a gold basket of favors waiting by the door for the guests.
 I got the red and navy striped pennants attached to rope-y twine from Oriental Trading.

 I purchased the decorative life ring from Oriental Trading as well!

 This pic is dark but it the buffet food table before my Son-in-law brought the shower food over.

 OK, NO, I did not make this banner. It was so gorgeous! I got it from a wonderful paper artist on Etsy because I didn't want to spend hours cutting all the pieces.
 I wrapped the plastic red tableware in Navy striped napkins and wrapped life savers and twine around them. Totally lifted that from Pinterest. The decoration in the middle of the table was a length of rope-y twine with wooden buoys hanging from it.

 I just LOVE the invitation I ordered for Etsy. So cute!!!

 My card making Buddy, Diane, from Dianes Sweet Treats, from my local card club made this cake top and cupcakes for me.
