Welcome to our New Home & A Burlap and Chalkboard Baby Shower


Welcome!  Welcome to my new home!  I took the plunge (by accident), and purchased my domain.  I guess I’m committed friends, I’m in it for the long haul!  I will be transferring my old posts from my other blog slowly, so both sites will be up for a bit.  If you can’t find your favorite post here, you can check at inspirationliberation.weebly.com.

Today, my mom and I had the awesome opportunity to host a baby shower!  My mom provided the house, and I provided the decorations.  It’s a win-win.  I was inspired by this baby shower from jenniferjonesphoto.com.  I love the natural organic tones of this baby shower, but I especially like the clothesline!  That teddybear kills me hung by his little ear.  I found the teddy bear on our line at Target.  I also found the onsies, socks, and little caps there too!



I took my chalkboard over there, and wrote the little man’s name on it.  I love the name they picked out!  I told Melissa, the mom-to-be, I will be addressing little Greyson, as Dr. Greyson James.  Positive affirmations, or subtle suggestions from infancy, is what I say.  I free-handed the chalkboard this time.


Ok, I have to be honest here, I’m not a fan of diaper cakes.   I think they are chessy and corny.  You guys still love me, right?  I was looking for ideas for the shower when I came across a cake that did not have rattles and diaper pins attached everywhere!  With the help of my husband, I forced those stacked diapers into a round shape and tied them up with twine.  I then wrapped lace over the twine, and then tied another piece of twine over the lace.  I used all removable parts, that way Melissa can use these diapers if she would like.



I also made a clothesline for the food and beverage table.  I’m so excited about this project, and I will post a tutorial later this week.  I can reuse this for parties in the future, and that saves me time and money!  The drink dispenser and three tiered basket are from my house, the jars I will re-use this summer for canning, and the buckets are from Target’s One Spot.  I tried to save money by using items I already had, or using items that Melissa can use for the baby.  I love it when it works out this way.  Who wants to store all that stuff?


This shower was so pretty and sweet, but not girly.  I love the mix of burlap and chalk, the mix of glass and tin, and the softness of the white contrasting it all.  I can’t wait to meet sweet Dr. Greyson!

      Thank you, Angela! Yes, that was my inspiration jumping off point. I could not help myself from squealing when I hung that bear by his ear…and the socks…and the newborn diapers I worked with…

        Love your diaper cake, what type diapers did you use?

          Diane, I used the Target brand natural diapers. They have an organic tan look about them. Perfect for the decor!

    I am so inspired by this post in particular, because my house is what yours USED to be. I love the whiter, softness look. Great job!
