01. Jen was smart enough to know when the lilacs would be in bloom in Salmon and planned the shower accordingly. She also had a sweet hookup. We cut buckets full of lilacs and didn't even make a dent in these bushes. 02. The girls were happy/insistent about helping put the flowers in the water. 03. We were up late the night before the shower making the favor bags and tags. I painted a watercolor stripe on the bottom for a little extra detail. 04. We packed all of the cookies in cellophane bags before putting them in the paper bags so there wouldn't be any spots on the paper. That's problem solving, people. 05. To buy us a little "quiet time" during the day, Jen made the girls a "special treat" that involved ice cream. It reminded me of these pictures. 06. I wish I always had a beautiful stack of crepes sitting on my counter.
