B is for Baby

door sign by Pink Coconut Designs...aka Kayley

... and BANNER!

I found the most adorable banners at EMMIE CAKES.

I e-mailed Tina to see if she would make me a custom banner kit for Preston's room and get it to me in time for Marci's baby shower. I sent her some pictures of his crib set and a few specifications and couldn't have been happier with what she came up with! Tina's a joy to work with and I can't wait to add her birthday banners to my e-store this summer!


The candy bar needed a little banner too. Martha Stewart has this great Alphabet Template.

The Giraffe watching over the candy was at Home Goods (I get high every time I go in that place!) in the clearance bin. His neck folded in half so I did a little surgery and put a dowel in for support. Now he can hold his head up proudly.

Banners are such a fun way to add a little festive whimsy. I'm hooked! Thanks again Tina Everyone adored Preston's banner.

I already commented on the shower on Marci's blog, but I wanted to let you know that I thought everything was JUST perfect :) You always do such a classy, beautiful, and inspiring job at nearly everything you do! I was sad I wasn't there, but it looks like little Preston is gettin' some serious love!
