Last Saturday, my mom and I hosted a baby shower for my newest cousin! It's always exciting to get a new addition to the family and I LOVE to host these things.
Little Owen is the cute little peanut belonging to my cousin Adam and his wife Jenn. He was born at the end of February and after I was sure mom had a little recovery time, I started planning like mad.
It started with the baby invites I posted about here. I was so proud of the end result for them.
I must admit....I did a fair bit of idea planning from Pinterest...have I mentioned that I LOVE that site! It's my go-to for EVERYTHING!! ( I will put up the links for any ideas on my May edition of the Pinterest Challenge)
The minute I saw this diaper cake, I knew I had to make it! Honestly, it was super easy and well received!
Why don't I take you on a tour of the rest of the day. Please keep in mind that Hayden was the photographer for a few of these.
