Moms Rule Mama Shower

Happy Friday to all you lovely people!
I hope the week was quick and painless & that your weekend feels like it will never end. {Hey, a girl can dream right?!}
In January I had the pleasure of co-hosting a Mama Shower for my cousin.  She had recently given birth to her second absolutely perfect baby boy and it was time to celebrate!  She didn't really need much in the baby department so we decided a Mama Shower was in order. 
You might be asking yourself "What the heck is a Mama Shower"?  Well, I'll tell ya!  It's a party showering the new mom or mom-to-be with special little gifts just for her, things that will fill her tank when the going gets tough as all of us mothers know that it can.  Gift ideas can include new jammies, a robe and slippers, gift certificates for pampering, aromatherapy candles, specialty lotions, a bottle of her favorite wine, etc.  I just LOVE the idea of a Mama Shower and think every mama deserves one. 
We threw this shower with a very realistic budget, using items that I already had on hand and saved money by catering it ourselves.  Throwing a beautiful and meaningful event doesn't have to be expensive, just get creative!
Take a look at how it came together....

I made this great sign with the free printable from The Alison Show.  Isn't it perfect?!
Tin cans {from my recycle bin no less!} spray painted gold held our flower centerpieces.  They also served as favors the guests got to take home!

Being a mom really does RULE!
Best. Job. Ever.
