yesterday we had a "Sprinkle" for my friend Julie. she is pregnant with baby #2 and the baby is a girl. her first is also a girl so she wasn't in need of many things. her oldest loves books and was pretty hard on them so she wanted us to have all the guests bring books to as the gift. we would have probably gone with a book theme but just a couple months ago we did a book theme shower for two of our other friends. julie is a lover of all things pink and sweet. once we dedided that we were having a "sprinkle" we went to work planning. i have to say that we had a pretty awesome team in the works to help with getting ready for this. the three other ladies were amazing and super easy to work with. here are some pics of the shower.
|Kelly brought the yummy punch|
|i provided the mason jars but Linds had the cute straws and made the little clouds that went on the straws. she got the idea from here|
|Linds also made this table cloth. she was going to pain the circles like this one(to mimic sprinkles of course) on the table cloth but she decided to just lightly stitch them on one corner. i think it turned out awesome.|
|these balloons were also something that we saw and thought would be fun. but instead of putting the sequins inside of the balloons Linds glued them to the bottom. i love how they came out|
|the streamers were made by me and and i got the inspiration from these sites|

|Linds made these cute flower vases out of baby food jars and sprinkled pink and purple senquins in the water. she saw the idea here|
|Blakeley put together a cute mad lib that we did before Julie opened the gifts|

|we thought it would be fun to send everyone home with something as a thank you. what girl doesn't love sparkle (sprinkled with glitter) nail polish. got the tag idea from here. thanks Linds for making the cute tags and thanks Kelly for supplying the punch.|
