An Adoption Shower

Our friends are adopting from Africa and a group of us planned a family shower for them a few weeks ago. We made all the flowers out of paper, washi tape + skewer drink flags, had families bring their favorite cookies for the dessert bar and covered bubbles and Trader Joe's chocolate bars in kraft paper for favors.  I also made these streamers, inexpensive and surprisingly easy.

The "seven" tags (seven people in the family) were for the guests to write down their favorite local activity for the Hocks to keep as ideas for the weekend.

The Oh Happy Day photo booth props are a little time intensive, but they were so much fun.  We're so excited for the Hocks and can't wait to meet the "bigs".

So pretty. You really are the queen of vintage chic. Also. You take beautiful pictures. And dress beautifully. When are you going to start doing style posts?

This is beautiful! What does the "family fun" suggestion box say? The picture is too blurry for me to read. We're doing an adoption party next week for our newest addition!
