joy had these jars from a shower she and jeannett threw for another friend (yeah, we all throw showers for each other) so we were able to reuse them.
grey paper straws, navy washi tape (from target!) flags, and orange yarn pompoms made the drinking jars adorable!
to keep with the color theme, we served orange cream soda and bubbly water.
since we were doing a really simple shower (just dessert), i only needed to decorate one table.
we used newsprint and navy polka dot fabric from my stash for a table runner.
the centerpieces were super simple as well: square vases wrapped in newsprint and orange yarn. the white mums and daisies were from costco.
yarn and newsprint pompoms hung from the chandelier.
and a length of a banner was added to a photo shelf.
i always love decorating my mantle, but with not having many navy or orange accessories to add to it, it was time to get creative. i borrowed the tall galvanized candle holders and added some galvanized buckets from my potting bench.
jeannett’s nickname for her yet-to-be-named baby has been walter, so we gave her a little laugh with a banner over the mantle.
the banner was super easy – just fabric and newsprint. i cut the fabric just smaller than the newsprint and the ran the top edge through my machine. then i cut 2 small holes near the upper corners to thread the yarn through.
joy had the great idea of doing brownies in a jar!
just add ice cream, nuts, homemade chocolate sauce and whip cream – yuuuum!
it was a joy celebrating jeannett!
we were also blessed to have tammy do the devotion: a sweet letter of encouragement and reminders for jeannett – thank you tammy!
and of all the fun gifts jeannett got, i loved this handmade quilt her mother-in-law made for her baby. she’s made one for each of jeannett’s kids – how sweet is that?!
