My Parties: Bear Baby Shower

This past Sunday I had my very first "Party Planning" gig. I was asked to plan/coordinate a Bear theme baby shower. Now since they were family, of course I did it "Pro Bono" but I was still very excited to actually do ALL the planning for a party that I didn't have to pay for. I was "contracted" to make all the necessary arrangements and most of the decorating. The shopping, the hiring of vendors, and the food arrangements as well. I also got to show off my talents on the dessert table and guest table, I actually seem to be getting quite a few request to arrange dessert tables...... very cool! Check out my "work"!

The "Advice" tree/ Guest table
People were to write advice for the new and first time mommy or a lovely note, for those that weren't parents. Reading off the notes from the tree was quite hilarious actually..... guest were very creative! LOL!

I really love this quote, so I printed it at Kinkos and put it in this apple green frame, I painted myself.

Personalized candy bar favors

The dessert table!

The very happy Mommy to be!

Did you make the toppers yourself??? Great job!
I'm working on a baby shower myself...brown and green!

Thank you Marie! Yes, I did make the toppers myself. I just realized I didn't put that in my post but I changed it. Scalloped paper punchers have become my obsession! hehe! Oooh, I can't wait to see what you create! I bet it'll be great!

Cheri said...

Hi there. Just saw you on the CPN. Great party!! Could you tell me if you use a punch or just cut out the kinds of scalloped food labels? They look awesome!

J. At Your Service said...

Thanks Cheri! The dessert labels are a printable file I purchased from Green Apple Paperie on Etsy. I cut them out with was super easy!

Everything looks great! Love the lables!!

denise said...

Can you tell me how to make the quote in a picture frame? Do I take my quote to Kinkos and tell them the size I need? Thanks

J. At Your Service said...

Denise, yes, take the quote there and you can tell them what you want to do. Either they can do it (for a charge) or they will instruct you, so you can type it up yourself (for a smaller charge). I think I paid like $5 to $7, thats with computer time that they charge for.
