we sneakily created...
a baby shower by mail in five easy steps!
We all planned to mail our packages on the same day. I wrote on the outside "Package #1 of 5... open when all 5 have arrived!"
Step 1: Decorate!
Step 2: Have a snack (Belly Bars)
Step 3 was wrapped in the sweetest little red Chinese take-out box... The instructions were to get out a cute plate for these
Step 4: Make treats (can you tell what my priorities are? Three out of five steps include food)... I could not resist this adorable cupcake kit!
I texted Mara when I was shopping to see what her favorite flavor was... she texted back "Lemon. Or maybe Pumpkin." She's getting both. It's kind of perfect because each mix makes 12 cupcakes, and the kit has enough materials for 24 cupcakes...
Step 5: Open presents! This is when she opens up all of the packages... Here's what I sent:
Sweater and pumpkin hat (we don't know if she's having a boy or a girl)
Personalized onesie and sweatshirt... hopefully someday I'll need one that says "Struckmeyer Jr." Seriously, baby stuff is so cute I can hardly handle it.
