Planning the shower...
Once we had theme, coming up with ideas that complimented bedtime stories was so much fun...from the invitation to the party favor...each guest table was decorated with a sheet, a pillow, a stuffed animal and a bedtime story book
Part of my team...great ideas, bought The Cow Jumped Over the Moon decor which was the guest sign in table complete with recording that looped and book
Actually made the tablecloths, sheets with matching pillows, using the colors of orange, yellow, green and blue!!!
Helped to set up, make guests had all they needed and clean up!!!

The very best cook "ever" - prebaked a ton of potatoes, and came up with some extremely creative toppings...including chili, vegetables, cheeses, sour cream, civets, butter, etc.
Cousin who used the party packs and gave me the templates, allowed me to use her paper cutter.
