John Deere Baby Shower!



I haven't been to a shower in years, but I was lucky enough to be invited to one over the weekend that was so unique! The couple is having a boy and decided to have a John Deere themed party to go with the baby's John Deere themed nursery. Now, before this I only knew one other person who would consider such a theme, and it's John Deere Mom!

The shower was green and yellow, with jars of cookie mix decorating each place setting. I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of it, but it looked just like this example from Pinterest.



One of the guests collected the fabric that covered each jar lid to make a surprise quilt for the baby.

There was a brunch buffet followed by a loooong cookie table for dessert (just like at a wedding), complete with John Deere boxes to fill and take home.



The mother-to-be received many useful gifts including several John Deere fleece blankets:



I made a John Deere themed quote frame, complete with tractor tire tracks (The Big Guy's idea):



Now that I read through this post, I wonder if a cookie table at a wedding (or shower) is a Pittsburgh thing or is it common in other parts of the country? Have you heard of this tradition before?

  4. I love it all!!! The picture frame you made is so cute. Definitely going to steal that idea.
    I did a cookie bar for my sister's baby shower. Here's the link to a pic. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_YKaUGM7a4Wk/TE2TrZZnIrI/AAAAAAAAFmQ/T9L1l5YWflw/s1600/011.JPG
