Baby shower for Tiffany!

One of my BFFs Tiffany is getting very pregnant… probably too pregnant now to help me with scavenging shenanigans.


She is also getting the perfect amount of pregnant for a baby shower.

I am helping a mutual friend and her sister with a shower later this month

(I’ll finally get to show you the present I’ve been working diligently on for a MONTH)

here’s a sneeky peeky:

for chris 012

that’s it, you’ll have to wait for her shower at the end of April to see the rest!


But I can show you some goodies from the work shower I also helped with:

It was a surprise shower… and let me tell you, it was SO hard to keep it that way!

Tiff and I are taking the same classes this semester, so we are together a lot.

While sitting in class about two weeks before the shower, I opened up an email from our boss…  it was an e-vite to the surprise shower…

opened up really big on my laptop…

with her sitting right there next to me!


EEK! I just started hitting buttons, trying to get it to go away before she saw it!

Fortunately, she was oblivious to my mid-lecture panic attack

She was very surprised!!!

(see? I CAN keep secrets!)

Tiff did almost ruin things by showing up early (who does that?!)… thanks Rachel for running outside to meet her and dragging her next door to distract her while we finished setting up!


Here’s the set-up:

the centerpieces were little metal pails I got from the dollar bin section at Target, filled with candy, and then a pinwheel in each bucket (3 for $1 and the Dollar Store).

Not baby-ish, but whimsical and fun.


Tiff got a lot of wonderful presents from our co-workers:

This was my present to Hunter… onesies with ties.


haha, it still makes me chuckle.

perfect for the office, Sunday church service, maybe a job interview…

i mean, whatever fashion needs your newborn has, a tie can certainly take care of them.


I got the idea from a fellow blogger

(I’m looking for your tutorial on how to make these but I cannot for the life of me remember who you are!!!! If you read this, please shoot me a comment so I can give you credit)

When I do remember who I snagged the idea from, I’ll link her post up here because hers are super cute and she deserves credit + oohs and aaahs.

cut out your fabric. I used a pattern I drew by hand but I bet you could get one online too.

using iron-on sheets (is that what they’re called?), iron the sheet to the back of your tie, then peel off the paper and iron the tie to your shirt.

Technically, iron-on stuff is supposed to be washing-machine safe, but since I knew it would be around a baby and possibly yucked all over, I stitched around the tie

(plus it made the finished product looked nice and finished).


super easy, super cute.

bada bing bada boom, we’re in business!

I was running super late that day of the shower though and I forgot to get a good close-up pic of the finished project….

we’ll just have to display it on Hunter when he gets here.


ps: I can’t lie… I got the onesies from the thrift store because I knew Tiff wouldn’t care. A brand new Carter’s onesie is a brand new Carter’s onesie…. whether you pay $6 for it or only 50 cents.

i’m just sayin’
