DIY Shower Favors

It seems a little odd to have flowers as a theme for a boy baby shower, but the mom is a girl and she likes flowers...and for the next million years it's going to be all about the boy...so why not something pretty? Plus, when you see the centerpiece (next post), it'll all make sense.

These were probably the easiest and relatively cheapest favors. I bought the terra cotta pots ($10.50 for 11 of them at Michaels) and Deb and I sponge painted them with some of her left over paint. The flowers were $1.15 for a six pack at Home Depot and I bought Marigolds, Petunias and Lamb's Ear.

The little flower cards were made from leftover paper from the invites and wooden skewer sticks cut in half with a bit of teal Washi tape (thanks Shawn :) on the back.

We didn't want to make a huge fuss over dessert since we were having the shower at a restaurant so we went super simple. Sugar cookies in the form of onsies, and the letters 'T' and 'J' (Thomas James :). And I made some chocolate-covered pretzels (recipe here) to match our decor.
