Getting Ready for a Baby Shower!

The baby shower invitations for Cammie are out! I am very excited to conquer the next step of the party-decorations! I thought it might be fun to do a crisp fall decor with lots of apples and fall foliage! Along with some "mock tails" and fun food with little give aways intermittently given away.  I also came across some fun little "facts" that we will use as conversation pieces instead of playing games!
