Felt and Watercolor Flowers Baby Girl Shower






Background: So when the God Mother to two of my children, Maid of Honor in my wedding, the other pea in my pod, and my very best friend of over a decade announced to me she was pregnant for the first time I about died with excitement. 

I'm pretty sure I've been dreaming of her shower for years. I knew this would be one of those that I would pour my heart and soul into. She has been such a loving and intentional friend to me for so very long, she has watched me bring three babies into this world, showered me and given the absolute most thoughtful gifts. Needless to say I am over the moon for the chance to shower her and watch her start this wonderful journey called parenthood.  

Here's the beautiful Momma to Be 


When we found out it was a girl....I cried. Of course, a boy would have been just as joyful but being that I just had my first baby girl I was excited just thinking about all the fun us four could get into! (and excited about all the girly talk I knew we'd have)

I wanted to gear most of the shower items to also be used as decor in the nursery. We went through a bunch of floral images on etsy until we found one we both adored! I purchased the images from SmallHouseBigPony and used to create all of the artwork you see. 


For the invites I created using the purchased artwork in picmonkey, then uploaded and ordered from psprint. I purchased these beautiful blush pink envelopes from the etsy seller: SEEDinvites, the color is just perfection. For the envelope liners I created an 8x10 images using the floral artwork and printed on regular computer paper for each invite. I created an image in pickmonkey for the return address labels and then printed myself.


For the beautiful entry door hanger I used a Hobby Lobby wood letter, and the inside of an embroidery hoop. 




I LOVE the way the diaper cake came out! I planned on using all of the flowers to add to throw pillows for the nursery decor!










Instead of hand painting her globe like I normally would I used a different method so the artwork would be the exact image we were using. I like this method because it's a great DIY for anyone who can't hand paint their own florals. 

I printed my images on regular computer paper, cut them out as closely as possible, then applied using modge podge. I hand wrote the quote with a paint pen but if you weren't able to, you could order or create your own vinyl decal. 







These little cakes were one of the highlights of the shower decor and I adore how they came out! They were such an easy DIY, anyone could do! I ordered the cakes through the Publix Bakery, I asked for just white buttercream frosting and no decor or trim. Then I ordered edible printed sugar sheets and applied following the instructions they came with. I made the cake toppers by creating the images in picmonkey, printing, and applied to little wood sticks with hot glue. 

I contacted Karin at DecorEats (click for link) and asked if I created the images, could she print for me. She has many beautiful images already though if you are looking for inspiration. She was so awesome to work with, the sheets came quickly and were packaged so nicely. I would highly recommend ordering from her!!





I created this beautiful wall tapestry to be a statement piece in the nursery as well. And I'm a little obsessed with how it turned out!

I used a small dowel, canvas fabric, felt flowers, hot glue, liquid stitch, ribbon, embroidered iron on monogram patch. I cut the fabric down to the size I wanted, folded in half and then cut the angle. If you fold in half and cut both at the same time you will get even edges. Then I used liquid stitch (my favorite) to hem all the edges. I placed the dowel at the top, folded over a little flap and liquid stitched that as well. I secured the flowers with hot glue. I ordered a large monogram iron on patch from the esty seller DeeAppliques and applied using her instructions. She does a great job and I order from her often!




















Hope you enjoyed!!
