What do you think???

Do these look like baby shower prizes? 
My daughter Maranda & I were in charge of the prizes
for the games at a baby shower we helped with.

I saw these at the Dollar Tree and fell in love with them.
We went online to see if you were suppose to give baby items to be
given to the mother or gifts for the winners of the games.
It said either.  So we decided to make up some cute prizes that
anyone would enjoy.

We picked up some flower seeds, some candy bouquets and
cookies on a stick. 

Then we added clear rocks and a cute little picture of a babies feet.

I just thought they were darling even if we did do them.

The best part is everything came from the Dollar Tree.

We added zinnia, marigold, and sunflower seed packs
in this little garden container. 

So what do you think???
Aren't they so cute?
This is the tag that we added.
On the back it says:
Thank you for coming.

We had so much fun helping with the baby shower.

Today I am thankful for.........newborn babies.

AHHHH Jeepers Val!

What a festive occasion and such a perfect time to renew .

Maybe you two should design baby showers or other special occasions because your sweet prizes can be appreciated by all. Just the cheerful colors make me want to win one. LOL

So cute and creative! Ya gotta love those dollar stores!

I've always been stumped too on whether the prize gifts are to go the guest who wins or the one being honored. I love these that you can do either with them and from the Dollar Store no less! You are so creative!
