Cowboy Baby Shower

Well, it's kinda sad that the only reason I'm blogging is so Mom and I can post these pics to pinterest. :)

A few weeks ago, we threw Jessie and Mr. Baby Doll a cowboy themed shower. Since I'm in Nashville and felt bad about not being able to help with cleaning and cooking, I did the paper decorations.

I made these name tags for the drinks and found these paper straws on Etsy before finding out they're sold at the Cottage Collective. Darn! I tied the name tags on with ribbon and twine. Dad punched holes in the jar lids and paper circles and...Viola!!

The table turned out great. Mom made bierocks and we had a veggie tray and apples and chips and salsa. A simple cowboy lunch.

Mom found that awesome board above the mantle back behind their creek!! She took the painting out of the frame (another Cottage Collective find) and made such a cute mantle. I made the sign out of scrapbook paper.

We had a little photobooth set up for everyone to take pictures and props for them to choose from. The sign says, "Mosey on over and get your mug shot taken".

We had everyone leave Jessie some advice, prayers or encouragement. 

I printed out iron-on transfers and everyone chose one or two to iron onto a burp rag. 
This is Aaron's brand.
We decided to make trail mix for the party favors. Mom made an awesome blend! 
Gigi and I tied all the labels on afternoon. It's a little hard to read but it says, "Happy Trails to you 'til we meet again, keep smilin' until then."
