baby shower thank you's...




I've been thinking about what I could do for little thank you's for the baby shower. Since we are doing a "movie" theme shower I thought to myself...movie theatre candy! I went to Wal-Mart and they had them on sale for .88 a box so I got a BUNCH! I had no idea there were so many varieties. It was kind of embarrassing because kids were pointing at my cart saying "Mom, look at all that candy!" Then I went to Scrapbooks Etc and got cute red and black polka dot ribbon and a tag punch. I tied them up with black twine and attached a little thank you tag. I hope that between these and all the food I'm going to make, that the guest will know that we appreciate them coming. I got them all finished up over the weekend. As a bonus, Brittany can use the baskets for baby stuff after the shower. Now to work on cleaning my house before my proceedure on Wednesday.....uggggg!
