Guest Designer at Decorate to Celebrate

***If you're looking for the CWC post...keep scrolling down... Thanks!:)**

We are having a gorgeous day today! How about you? Did you know, I'm having a GIVEAWAY? Yay! If you haven't joined in you can here.

Well, I am honored because..........I am lucky enough to be a Guest Designer for Decorate to Celebrate for their baby shower theme!  You can check out their blog  here. You may remember me talking about a baby shower that we were having for some friends. If not, you can check out the invitations here, and the front door wreath here, and the video tutorial for the door wreath here.

Well, we had the baby shower two weekends ago! I can't believe how fast time flies!  Anyways, here are some of the decorations...

Here is one of the banners I made:

I used the New Arrival Cricut cartridge (if you don't have a cutting machine I made a printable for you at the bottom of this post, so you could replicate this banner) to make the onesies and the "It's a Girl" circles. The flower in the center of the onesies were left over from my Spring Topiary. If you didn't get a chance to check it out, you can find it here. I cut the onesies and circles out at 4in.

The dessert table had lanterns and this circular decoration hanging down from the ceiling. The circular string decoration was so easy to make. All I did was take a glass trace around it to make my circular pattern and cut out circles from felt sheets. The felt was the stiff felt sheet kind. The sheets were purchased at Hobby Lobby. After cutting out the circles I hot glued them back to back on a string. I don't know the technical term for the string but it was shiny and smooth string...ha! You can use whatever type of string, twine, etc...

This is a picture of the dessert table before we had all the food out. I wanted to make sure I got some pictures before it got too crazy and I forgot to take pictures. I actually was able to get some, not as many as I would have liked, after the food was out...I will post soon!

Here are the printables as promised so that you can make the banner yourself if you don't have a cutting machine.

                                Download the It's a Girl here                Download the It's a Boy here                  

                                                          Download the onesies here 
(If you use colored paper when printing the onesies they will be printed whatever color of paper you put in the printer...I'm sure you already knew that, but just in case)

If you've never downloaded a printable follow these directions.....ENJOY!
You will be brought to Photobucket. You will not see the word "File" but if you take your mouse to the upper left hand corner of the printable, you will see it. Go to File then a drop down menu will pop up and go to download! There you have it! Now you can download and print away! Also, when in doubt, just right click right on the image and click "Save As". Then you can save the printable to your computer.  My printer allows me to print at different sizes like 8X10 and 5X7 along with the quantity to be printed off! Let me know if you have any questions because I was a lost puppy when it came to printables at first!

Thanks again  DECORATE TO CELEBRATE  for having me as a Guest Designer! 

Have a Super fun day!

  10. Woahhh BABY!!! This shower ensemble is completely fabulous! First of all, I LOVE the non-traditional color scheme! Omgosh, I've been to many baby showers and they're always the same--cute but "babyish" lol. I hosted my sister's baby shower about 4 years ago and didn't even think to go with anything but baby blue or pastel pink, get it. Now I think to myself, yes we are celebrating baby, however baby hasn't arrived yet so the party is really for adults and so if I ever do one again, I'll be using your brilliance to create a more sophisticated look, rather that cutsy :D Now you are just so talented Miss Jill, I might venture to say that Decorate to Celebrate are the lucky ones! And smart too, they chose you as thier Guest Designer and what a fantastic display of creativity and inspiration you've given them, and us!!! THANK U! xoxo

  11. So cute! I pinned this, so next time I'm throwing a baby shower (hopefully not too long, I have a sister and some cousins who should be pregnant soon) I can use these. Thank you so much for the printables. I'm just barely starting to use them, so it's a huge help when you give detailed directions:)
