Welcome Baby Cora - Elephant Themed Baby Shower

This past weekend I had the great pleasure of throwing a baby shower, with a few coworkers, for my good friend, Khrystal. This was my first baby shower to organize and I had so much fun! Our theme was elephants with purple, grey, and green. What a cute little shower it was! I guess you know you did a good job when you're still going strong three hours in and no one wants to leave! I also had an amazing helper (my mom) who did a lot of work to keep glasses full and the kitchen clean! Thank goodness for mom or I may have not been able to spend any time with my guests!
Baby Cora apparently loves lemon and strawberry cupcakes, so of course that was our cupcake selection. I used a crystal tree that I made for my sister's wedding as a centerpiece and added a few vases with some handmade Billy Balls for a little touch of whimsy. Isn't that lamb adorable?
For a guestbook I wanted to create something that our mommy-to-be could hold on to, maybe even frame and put in the nursery. Khrystal and I are cupcake freaks, so how very appropriate that I make her a cupcake fingerprint guestbook where the guests sign with their fingerprints to create the sprinkles on the cupcake. It turned out sooo cute and it was cheap and easy to make!
The full spread, minus a platter or two. Had to get a picture before all of the guests arrived, but you get the idea! I had so much fun planning and putting together this shower...good thing too, because I am hitting that age where all of my friends are getting married or having babies. Bring on the showers ladies!
Myself, Khrystal (our mommy-to-be!), Mallory & Lisa (two of my coworkers)

    1. I purchased the tree from http://www.save-on-crafts.com/

      Here is the direct link to the tree: http://www.save-on-crafts.com/whitetree.html

      It doesn't come with the crystals or the paper medallions, but you can buy those crystals on that site too!

  7. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
