I ended up making both the Felt Garlands and some Table Runners for the baby shower I co-hosted this past weekend and was so happy with how it turned out! You can see a table runner below and the other one in a picture from Monday's post.
The garland was super easy to make... I cut three differently sized circles out of three colors of felt and then just fed them one-by-one through the sewing machine. It was such a satisfying project to sew... very little time needed and you had a super long garland created!
The carnation balls didn't end up happening this time - I couldnt find wet foam spheres anywhere and the ones I ordered online didn't come in time. But now I have a project for my sister's bachelorette party decorations this summer! :)

The baby shower I co-hosted this past weekend went fabulously... we enjoyed good food (my contribution was cheese fondue- yum!), good company, and lots of oohing and aahing over the gifts, especially all those tiny clothes!
Plain onesies on a clothesline
The main activity was a big hit- decorating onesies. This seems to be a pretty common baby shower event, but I heard lots of compliments on the approach we took... Using this idea from Jordan Ferney, we had guests trace shapes onto different fabrics and iron on their creations. I was seriously amazed by the creativity levels... I had expected everyone to choose a single fabric/ shape, and one guest put her shape on the backside, which started a major trend!

I love fresh flowers in the house, but am not always so good about keeping them in fresh water... I think that I may need to steal the idea I've been seeing on blogland - dried Billy Button flowers. So pretty!
