Where the gifts went, before I opened them :)
Flowers are from costco!! Just rearranged by my mother & grandma. To put the limes on the sides you put a small vase inside a large vase and put the limes in between them to stay in place!!
Cake, with converse shoe topper.
Diaper cake made by me :) BBQ meatballs, chips with salsa and queso, veggies with deans dip, fruit baby (made by me, idea by pinterest), fruit dip.

There will be five generations of us once baby Matthew is here :)

Frames 50% off at hobby lobby, with Matthew's sonogram pics in them, the little glass (M) is hobby lobby, card box, wishes for baby, bingo, guest book in the middle.
Anne Marie lost her son Matthew two years ago in a car crash. He was my age and we grew up together. He is the reason I am naming my child Matthew. I was so glad she came, she is one of the strongest women I know.
Party favors. I got the bags off amazon they are burlap. Each has 5 dove chocolates in them in different flavors & I bought a stamp and stamped it on the bag it says (its the smallest things that fill our heart)
Tiny grandma made us this, it is a football hat and over the diaper bottoms for his newborn pictures :)
I hope everyone loved my baby shower photos!! I tried to include where I got everything or where I got the idea, so if anyone wanted to use the idea or get the same thing they could, please don't hesitate to ask me any questions on anything. My advice for a baby shower would be to wake up a day before the shower because we woke up 8 hours before and that still wasn't enough time lol. I had such an amazing time visiting with everyone, and all the gifts we got are amazing!! I'm down to one page on my list of things to get before baby Matthew gets here!! My next baby shower is in Georgia on the 24th of June, so expect more pictures from that!!
