cute as a button...

Last week we had a baby shower for a friend at church...her favorite color is "rainbow" and she's having a girl!! I mean seriously...so much fun! It started out as just flowers and pom pom trim, but then I wanted to make a mobile to hang over the table. I usually just use paper, but then I remembered this shower...soon it was all about buttons!

Luckily, I still had a stash of buttons that I stole from my Mimi :) It was definitely much easier to make than my paper ones, but then it got tangled--three times. And it fell in the fudge after the first attempt to hang it. I definitely need to figure out a method to transport without tangling. And maybe a little time management too. Just pretend like I had time to press the table runner, and that I didn't just haphazardly throw things on the table--although maybe the mobile tangling is to blame for all of that! :)

My absolute favorite was the vase!! Luckily, Mimi has LOTS of buttons!!
And the favors....more flowers!!! Such a fun shower!!!! Can't wait to see her.
