My dear friend, Lisa, who I met while we were both students at Portland State University is pregnant with her second child. I just love babies so naturally, I was very excited!! I was even more excited when I found out I could be a part of her very special baby shower. Her bestie Vanessa styled this “Apple of my Eye” baby shower for her. She did the most amazing job.



The shower was decorated with polka dotted kraft paper table runners and jars of red and green apples. Doilies were also used as accents, to add a more feminine touch. The baby shower featured a grilled sandwich bar for the main coarse. This was so much fun! Each guest added a flag pick with their name so the sandwiches wouldn’t get mixed up. Great idea Vanessa!


Aren’t these little chip bags adorable? I used my Silhouette machine to cut them out! Oh, the things I’m going to make with that machine. Watch out. I also designed matching wraps for these paper disposable soup cups.


One of my favorite parts of the shower was the dessert buffet. The shower was at Vanessa’s cousin, Carla’s house. Carla’s husband is an artist and used the invitation I designed as inspiration.  He created the most amazing chalk art. I was blown away with how perfect it was. Carla not only offered up her beautiful home, but she is also a fabulous baker who owns Portland Pie Co.. She was responsible for the apple pie in jars and the apple shortbread cookie.  Isn’t this one talented family?

Here was my gift to Lisa! It wasn’t very exciting, but I made it look pretty by adding some vinyl lettering to it. Also, I got this perfect little lunch box at Target to package her gift in. Don’t you just love Target?

When it comes to baby shower gifts, adding a personal touch can make all the difference. Various ranges of customizable gifts allow you to create a unique and meaningful present that will be cherished by both the parents and the little one. Whether it’s a personalized onesie with the baby’s name, a custom-made baby blanket with embroidered initials, or a handcrafted nursery decor item, these thoughtful gifts showcase your love and attention to detail. They not only demonstrate your thoughtfulness but also provide a lasting keepsake that captures the joyous occasion of welcoming a new baby into the world. Exploring online marketplaces or specialty stores that offer customizable gifts can inspire you with a wide range of options to suit various preferences and budgets. With the ability to add names, dates, or heartfelt messages, these gifts become treasured mementos that celebrate the special bond between parents and their little ones.apple_11 This is the adorable Mommy-to-be, her sister, and her adorable daughter.
