My mom's dear friends all get together for "us" kids when there is something to celebrate...Weddings (in this case), Babies, Books, Birthday's...any old way to celebrate life and each other!
I love these ladies...

I thought you'd love these pictures! So many Creative Ideas for Showers!
(You can double click on the pics to make larger don't forget, and to forward just hit forward-for mom's friends- like you would an email! To go to actual blog, hit the grey Inspired Design Blog/Words at top of page)
Ideas to note: *Curly kids straws are fabulous. They come in big packs of 12 for a dollar or two. They are fabulous alone or tied with a bow, with colored lemonade!
*We all always add to regular invitations a bow :)
or as they did above a yellow leaf for "Registry Info"
*My clever mom (ok, where I steal all my ideas from, truth be told)
cut slits in plain white tablemats, and the girls (mom's friends) ran grossgrain ribbon through them!
Simple White Gerbera Daisy's (Favorite! 5 made a big impact)
Ok...celophane is fabulous. How can a gift not look amazing tied with celophane and a big huge bow! Of course, look how beautiful mom and honoree are! (beautiful inside and out!)
Simple and Gorgeous!
Below, ribbons and cake? Yes, easy and gorgeous! I love....
Amazing Mrs. Kriz and Patty! Gorgeous cake and bow (removable, so I am sure will get used again!) Borrowing is a great thing! All those black and white checked items are borrowed from MOI! We are constantly packing and trading b/n my sis, my mom and I. Always celebrating someone or something! (Not big things...simply for the privilege of being alive!)
