|Cake Table (The cakes were polka dot, opposite of the napkins)|
|Cake made my a family member--- Is it not ADORABLE!?!?|
|Fresh daisies in already-owned canning jars|
|Canning jar with rocks, ribbon and wood accent found at a craft store|
|The whole room- the potted plants were prizes (dual purpose = money saver)|
|Treat box- 12 boxes for $1 from Dollar Tree with stickers from Teacher's Aide|
Boxes were filled with yellow candy to match the theme

tissue paper pom on large dowel rod, scrapbook paper and daisy paper sprinkle
I don't have a picture, but the hosts displayed lemonade in an extra large mason jar and a laddle.
Overall, we stayed on budget, got all the shopping done in one trip, and had fun while planning! I hope this inspires you to use things you already own to create an adorable shower!
Some other ideas we didnt use were:
- Hanging tissue paper poms/lanterns from the ceiling. This couldn't be done due to facility rules.
- Using large bumble bee balloons or hive decorations. The host wanted the theme to be subtle.
- Using themed plates/cups/napkins. The caterer provided these products, so the host didn't have any say.
- Polka dotted table coverings. The hosts decided to keep the neutral colored tables bare.
