Holly’s Shower Favors

My good friend, Holly, is having a baby shower this weekend!  I’m so excited to go and celebrate her healthy pregnancy and her soon-to-be-born baby Jackson!

I wanted to help out with her shower, so I took care of the favors.  I think they came out so cute, so I just had to share them with you…


Holly’s  shower is at a Tea Room, so I made up favors that would go with the theme.  First, I ordered custom tea bags that say, “A Baby is Brewing”.  Then, I got mugs, ribbon, and cellophane for wrapping everything up.

Step 1 – Cut the cellophane to size.


Step 2 – Place the mug and tea bag in the center of the cellophane for wrapping.


The back of the tea bags... 


Step 3 - Wrap it all up with a twist tie. 


Step 4 – Add a bow and voila!  The finished product!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
