Prior to the shower, I asked my friend Shauna to convince the mom-of-honor she needed belly pictures with her little girl. I asked Shauna to capture lots of hugs and kisses in the photos. Well, thank goodness for Costco's one-hour photo and Shauna's sweet skills. They turned out AMAZING. This same Shauna took a lot of the following photos in this post so I am going to put her name under the ones she took. (Just FYI, giving credit were credit is due).
Here is the entry table flanked with giant kisses and photos of the mom-of-honor's girls (1 in utero).
I had the guests write down their wishes and advice for the mom-of-honor on the mini Valentine book in the center.
I used mini wooden clothesline clips with glue-gunned on heart jewels to attach the photos. All the daisy's you will see I found for 40% off at our local craft store Beverlys. I glued alligator clips on the back to ease in decorating.
Hershey Kisses were EVERYWHERE! Hershey Hugs too! In fact we played a game "Count the Kisses" where the guests had to guess how many there were throughout the house. The grand total...and I did count them...was 686! I loved the huge kisses!
All the mini frames I found at Micheals in the dollar section. I fell in love with them but there were only pink and red ones among yellow, blue, and green. I bought a few blue ones and spray painted them brown to match our color scheme. Then I simply inserted some scrapbook paper to match the banner and it all ties in.
This was the main dining table.
My friend Sarah dresses up her chairs in her home like this for every holiday. It is so easy and makes a huge statement. It takes about 3 yards per chair and you simply tie a bow and let it drape down. You can put whatever flower or accent you want in the middle. I found the least expensive tulle to be at Wal-Mart, only 97cents a yard!
More table, sprinkled with kisses of course.
Majo, my partner in crime for this shower, decorated the tables with pink and red daisy's and...
...simple white gifts with coordinating ribbon. Very cute and inexpensive!
This was the extra seating in the kitchen. Heart plates courtesy of Target Valentine clearance last year.
