Jul17 Orange & Blue 2012

Mother-to-be Linda has a wonderful mother and sister who threw this wonderfully mod and colorful shower with a candy shoppe theme. They used the chevron napkins and milk glass to bring in a mid-century vibe and with all that color it seems right in line with this colorful season. You will be shocked to know this was a DIY shower…yes it is!!! The family of our mother-to-be cut, pasted and put together all the paper and designed goods, from the menu to the sign on the candy jars. Alessa Lynn was actually born by the time this shower took place. She was born prematurely at 30 weeks and was in the NICU at the time of the shower. So the original shower date was after her birth on April 24, 2012. We are so happy to know that Alessa is healthy!
