What could be more fitting for a baby shower in the middle of Kansas, other than a "FARM" theme?!
It was so fun to get to come up with fun crafts and goodies for it.
"Farm Fresh" Chocolate covered Strawberries
Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
Ma"moo"sa Drink Bar: Strawberry Orange, Grapefruit, and Orange Juice Mimosas

Kept them to a minimal. Some twine, burlap, and blue gingam ribbon here and there.
Her house had beautiful rustic details: stone fireplace, wooden ceiling beams and island bar, and wood flooring.
I drew some large farm animals and strung them with twine along the bar.

And decorations wouldn't be complete without a tractor and diaper "bails". I had to rescue this one from my son's garage toys and hose it down to look presentable. There is still a hint of dirt on the back tires for effect ;)

Guests entered and wrote down prayers or wishes they had for the baby and hung them on the tree so she can save and scrapbook them.
They were then lead to the Mimosa Bar and munched on snacks.
We opened with each guest picking a baby quote to read after they introduced themselves.
We opted out of baby shower games and instead each guest got to decorate their own onsie. We purchased some onsies and about 15 different fabric prints and cut out little boy themed icons (sailboats, trains, tractors, footballs, ties)

Stencils Icon Cut Outs (silhouette images via Internet)
Fabric (12-15 different prints about an 1/8th yard)
Pencils (to trace images onto fabric)
THIS Fabric Glue via Amazon. It's a fabric glue you can wash!! (Cuts the time in half over iron on appliques)
Paint Brushes (to apply fabric glue)
Several pairs of scissors
Buttons, ribbon, string (extras)
They turned out super cute! And it was such a fun way for all the girls to mingle and get creative.
Most important, it was such a great opportunity to show her love and support during one of life's greatest moments in having a baby.
