We had the party April 10th in my backyard (we live in Jacksonville, FL and had perfect weather, in the 70s)
We had the tent, table and chairs brought in but we did all of the decorations and food ourselves. The color theme started from the invitation from Tiny Prints.
We made sugar scrub jars for the take home gift and it doubled as the placecard. We got the beautiful glasses from the dollar store and used scrapbook paper for the place-mats. We ordered the fresh flowers from www.fiftyflowers.com (and got a great deal). We covered a huge Z in artificial flowers...the baby to be's name will be Zoe. We hung paper lanterns in the trees and also had tiny citronella candles on the table to keep the bugs away.Baby Zoe's room is decorated with a ton of bla-bla dolls so we made tags on the back of all of the chairs with cut outs of different bla-bla dolls. My husband made the backdrop that stood behind the food which we taped my sister's maternity pictures on. The banner on the front door I painted and sewed a blown up picture of the sonogram in the middle...the wording is ironed on letters I printed from my computer. While my sister opened gifts we had baskets of ribbons, glue and buttons for the guests to make baby Zoe hair clips.
When the Mom-to-be walked outside and saw the set-up, it was a complete surprise.
