Yesterday I went to a Baby Shower for my dil's sister.
First came love!
Then came marriage, I posted about her wedding in 2010 here .
Now comes baby in a baby carriage. :)
My dil is the oldest of 4 girls, so this is the baby of the family. They are 6 years apart.
The cake was so pretty, chocolate filled with a raspberry cream.
I did the centerpieces, baby pink roses and white mums and baby's breath in containers from an older sister's baby shower.
Some were booties, carriages etc.
I did 5 of those, and had some extra roses, so I did one in a wicker carriage I had.
I love making centerpieces! I get my flowers at Sam's Club, they are more reasonable than Costco and have a bigger selection. If you are doing a large party, you can order on line and have them delivered.
I also did little boxes , Debbie Mumm design, and filled them with mints.
became the favors.
Swaddled in pink tissue, then a white bag, tagged and bowed. Ready to be planted in their gardens. Grow baby grow!
We used the lime and white polka dot plates, pale pink tablecloths with pink napkins and pink flatware.
My gifts were packed in this adorable , sturdy pink duffle bag. I gave a few onesies, a ducky towel, soft pique rattle, child fork and spoon , a baby float and a gift check to put away for baby.
The bag is from Pottery Barn, and was outside in bins. I couldn't believe the price! ( 2.97) So much better than packing it in a paper gift bag, I think! They were able to pack a lot of the other gifts into the bag too.
I did some of the food too, but I will save that for Let's Dish, Wednesday at 7! Hope you will join us with a tablescape, a dish or glass collection or some things you have found to use on your table. We love seeing your treasures!
