A Baby Shower for Lisa AND Hank!

Our church is constantly filled with pregnant ladies :) It's fun to watch their bellies grow and the pregnancy glow shine all over their faces. The next baby due to be born is Hank. Our small group hosted a baby shower for our sweet friend Lisa and her soon-to-be-baby boy. The shower's leader, Shannon, designed a vintage, tractor themed shower. The setting took place in Lisa's father's beautiful barn. We had many homemade foods and desserts present and just enjoyed watching Lisa open all of her BLUE/BOY gifts. Lisa has two beautiful daughters and is excited to welcome a little testosterone into her home. For some reason, I think she is a little overwhelmed with the thoughts of being a mommy to a little boy, but she's done such an amazing job with her girls, she truly has NOTHING to worry about. BOYS hold the key to their mommy's heart.

Lisa's dad parked a real tractor outside of the barn.
The table settings included brown napkins, tied with string, and faux silverware. The table cloths were burlap and/or blue gingham fabric.
Each table centerpiece included a vintage styled tractor.

Total pinterest material, right here.

A mason jar and a hydrangia flower also accompanied the vintage tractor in the center of each table. These flowers actually came from Erin's garden. I love how we use things we already have to lower the cost of the shower. It was the perfect touch really!
The gift table was a picnic table with gingham fabric.
Jody had a ton of vintage-like toys and antiques to help decorate the shower.
The shower favor was a handmade fan. The guests used these during the shower to cool off.
Lisa is a blogger like me, so she came to her shower with ONE thing in hand... her camera. Ready to capture this special occasion.
Lisa opens gifts. She received a ton of diapers and wipes, some adorable baby boy outfits, a personalized baby bracelet, and....
A bucket of boy things.... sticks, string, a hammer, a lightening bug jar etc. Very clever idea.
I think the guests really enjoyed their time.

I know they, for sure, went home stuffed. Check out Tabby. I captured Tabby using her fan. LOL!

We are praying for the Fernandez family as they prepare to welcome a new addition to their home. God's grace has provided Lisa with a healthy pregnancy. We look forward to meeting Hank very soon!!!!!!! We love you Lisa.
