Plans for the week

I have a million things I want to get done this week. We'll see how far I get. I don't necessarily have to get all this done, I just want to.

The first thing is that I'm planning a baby shower for a friend and I'm trying to get that all organized, hand out assignments and get some of the decorations done. We have a spare classroom at the church building that I can put the finished items in so they won't be sitting around my home until the shower. It isn't until the beginning of March so I have a couple of weeks, but I really wanted to get the invitations out tomorrow so everyone has time to mark it on their calendars.

I'm excited about this because it's been a while since I've helped plan a baby shower and I've joined Pinterest since the last one. :)

One of the things I'm very excited about making is a diaper cake.
I started it tonight, but didn't get very far because I ran out of rubber bands. I've never made one before so I'm hoping it turns out as cute as I want it to.
I'm also going to try to make a diaper carriage. I think it will be a cute addition to the cake table.

I painted the fronts of these clothes pins for a clothes line. I love little baby clothes lines. I think they are so cute!
Here is the invitation I chose. I went to Dollar Tree first and they had invitations, but they weren't really that cute. They would have worked fine, but they just weren't quite what I wanted so I ended up putting them back and buying these at the Wall-to-Wall Mart.
I am also going to make ribbon topiaries for the cake table. Another lady is going to be in charge of the cake and I have to get a list of odds and ends to the other hostess to get. I'm so looking forward to decorating and doing this for my friend!

And just because she's so adorb:
Mer! Love her!

I have always wanted to try a diaper cake too. Please post when you get it done. I have a girl baby shower that me and another girl are doing the decorations for in April.
