BABYSHOWER!!!! LOTS OF PICTURES (D.I.Y favors, desserts, baby shower decor)

OUR BABY SHOWER

We had our baby shower August 15, 2015
It took many months of planning and hours of d.i.y's. 
Planning a party cost SO much money! I wanted things to be MY way, so instead of someone close to us throwing us a surprise party -I wanted to plan everything myself & i'm so happy how our baby shower turned out. 

We didn't have a theme but we did have a color scheme which was blue and green.   
I spent months d.i.y-ing most of the stuff like the invitations, all the favors and tiny details, decorations, desserts, pretty much everything besides the dinner.
 I was overwhelmed by the amount of people that showed up i wasn't able to get a picture of everything sadly because i loved the balloon garland and all the decorations.

 But here are a few of my favorite images taken from the baby shower.    



(THE FAVOR TABLE) 
(THE FAVOR TABLE)
I did a post on how to d.i.y 
The main favor a.k.a take home gifts.
 I made prayers for baby candles. I added cute charms to them later (not shown). 
Then for the kids we had a candy box and bubbles...
Everything on the favor table was a d.i.y project.

I also did these cool "word of advice" and "wishes for baby" cards. 
Our guest got one of each card and filled them out, i loved reading them when the party was over -so happy i did these)

(The dessert table)
Everything on this table was made by me and my best friend. 
As you can see, i wanted to add lots of d.i.y projects to our babyshower. 
This was both of our first time making most of these desserts. 
I love how they turned out.


I also had this frame that my guest got to sign or leave a message for baby Adrian.

(Opening gifts)
WE-ARE-SO-BLESSED
Adrian got SOOOOOO many gifts but what i loved the most was.... all my guest listened to my  request for VEGAN/CRUELTY products only. 
If you did not know i am a vegan. 
We asked for people not to bring gifts at first but if they wanted to they needed to bring vegan/cruelty free products AND THEY ALL DID!  

(My older sister gave Adrian a lamb that turns into a blanket and pillow - It's so soft)

BABY BUMP UPDATE
WEEKS 21-29

Hello my lovely blog readers hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
As i type this, i'm currently 35 weeks and 1 day!!

I have just about 4-5 more weeks left of pregnancy. 
SO EXCITED.
This has been thee most wonderful experience i ever had. 
I love love love being pregnant. 
This has also been the happiest i ever been.

We had our lovely baby shower on Aug 15. 
The turn out was amazing, i will do a blog post of that soon
stay tuned for that because i have a bunch of D.I.Y baby shower ideas for those who are planning a baby shower. 

We are pretty much ready for our son Adrian.
All his clothes and blankets are washed, all his baby gear is put together and ready, his crib is set up and waiting for him. And his belongings are all set up nicely in his room.
I have been nesting like a crazy women lol!!!

I have not mommy-blog the way i originally wanted too.
(although i do keep my instagram and facebook updated)
With the move, setting everything up, resting, appointments, school, studying, testing, every-day-life.... My days are getting so busy & a bit "rushed" so too say, that by the time i have time- I spend that time resting or napping. 

However since i found out i was expecting  at 9 weeks i have been keeping up with taking weekly baby bump shots, i'm glad i did! It's amazing how much i grow week-by-week and how much changes within only a week - Human creation is truly a blessing and an amazing experience. 

Here is week 21-29 of my baby bump 
ENJOY!

D.I.Y BABY SHOWER: Prayer candle favors

D.I.Y. BABYSHOWER FAVORS 
"TAKE HOME GIFTS"

In about 2 1/2 months we FINALLY get to met our son Adrian. 
I am truly truly excited to finally becoming a mother. 
I am so pumped about the arrival of baby boy. 

Before he arrives into this world, and as a first time mom i wanted to celebrate him and of course us, Mommy and Daddy by throwing a fun-filled d.i.y BABYSHOWER. 

My baby shower is not until August but i just got around to planning it because we went back and fourth rather or not we were going to have one -I thought people are supposed to throw you one? but welp....
We decided to do it our self's  
And since we're about to welcome a new baby, i wanted to keep the baby shower low-key so to say, i didn't want to spend too much money on my own baby shower when i should really be saving money  for Adrian. 

So basically i'm making, crafting, d.i.y.ing EVERYTHING BY MYSELF!
From the favors, decor, cake, desserts, invatations, even some food. 

I wanted to show you how i made my d.i.y. prayer candles.
This is one of 4 take home gifts for our guest. This one being my favorite

HERE IS A STEP BY STEP GUIDE ON HOW I MADE MY 
D.I.Y. BABY SHOWER FAVORS 
  


Materials: 
* LOTS of Tea light candles 
* Tulle cut into circles
* washi tape


Here is the 3 washi tape colors i choosed 



The brand i use most is Recollections. 
These tubes of washi cost only 19.99 each.
The washi i choosed was one roll of tape from each tube 
You can purchases these at Micheal's Craft Stores 


I use the washi tape to decorate the "ugly" tea light candles
 so that they look pretty.
This step took SO SO SO LONG because one-by-one i measured the tape, cut the tape and carefully wrapped the tape around 150 tea light candles -without help.



Next i cut tulle into circles to make d.i.y "bags" to hold the tea light candle. Each guest will be able to take home 3 candles, one of each washi design. If you can find pre-cut tulle this step will be much easy. But don't worry if the cut is not prefect. 


Then, i found this really cute quote on the internet by googling "new born prayer"  
I then printed it out on Avery 8160 sticker label sheets to make tags for the candles. 

Then i stick the sticker on a blue cardstock paper for strength and prettyness .
Cut to desired shape.
Punched a hole on the corner of each tag. 
And use decorative scissors to add a cute cut design to the tag.

I attached the tag to 3 different ribbons, one that says "it's a boy" one green and one blue. 
The tulle looks SO pretty around these candles. 

And thats pretty much all to it!!! It was simple to make, however took long due to cutting, measuring, and wrapping one by one. 
(I'm a perfectionist - it's why i didn't want no one to help)

I have a lot more baby shower d.i.y crafts in the making!!!
Including 3 more baby shower take home gifts. 
So please do stay tune for more d.i.y. projects. 

NOTE: I have been lagging with blog post due to it's been REALLY busy with the new move, school, and life.... If you follow me on instagram @planetjenessa or on Facebook i usually always post my d.i.y's there before i make an entire blog post about it. 

If you decided to make theses for any occasion please feel free to share your designs with me!
