I made cards in photoshop to match the decorations. Each card had a number on it (one through however many guests you have). As each guest arrived, we asked them to write to baby Scout a piece of advice or words of wisdom or encouragement or a fun quote for the age that coincided with the number on their card. We then sealed them in envelopes for Scout to open each year on that birthday.
It was the prettiest little girl shower I think I've ever seen.
What an excellent team Candace and I make.
Oh, and did you catch that diaper bouquet?
Not a diaper cake.
We made a diaper bouquet.
And it was AWESOME!
And surprisingly easy.
