Preparing for a Shower

My baby shower is this Sunday and it is going to be held at my house. My sister is the one who organized it and she lives in Boston. She will be arriving a few days early in NYC to prepare everything. In the mean time, my place looks like a tornado hit it. Why is it that you have to make a mess in order to clean a mess?

The above photo is a sneak peek of the party favors. My sister had everything shipped to my house so she won't have to lug everything on the bus from Boston. The robin's egg soaps are so cute. They are speckled and they fit perfectly into the nests that she ordered separately. I bought the baby bottles from Michaels and filled them up with pacifier candies. Did you notice that I have a bird theme? My sister designed and made the invitations. They are so cute. The colors are chocolate brown and purple. Underneath the invite are custom bird stickers that she got for the party favor bags.We finalized the menu yesterday and I have a list of groceries to buy. My sister and I will be making the food for the shower. And she has some fun games for the guests to win prizes. I will try to take some good pictures to share with all of you.
