Baby Time!

A friend of mine is having a baby...I almost never go to baby showers and I've never thrown one... until yesterday!  It was so much fun getting everything ready!

I didn't want there to be too much of a theme but I did want something really special for the invitations.  I made a booklet style invitation with a children's classic on each page and sewed the pages onto the back cardstock.


 
 
I never do "girly" things and I took this as an opportunity to use predominately feminine colors.
There are white Christmas lights strung underneath the table and I LOVE how it turned out!
 
 
 
 
Mason jar glasses with a simple ribbon bow and a paper straw.
 
 
 
The curtain is white crepe paper streamers that I stuck fabric and paper flowers to. I had planned on getting a bit more elaborate with the food portion but wasn't able to because a minor injury caused a serious delay in my timeline! No one seemed to mind though!
 
 
 
I was really pleased with how the dessert table turned out. 
Chocolate bowls of tiramisu, chocolate cups with a chocolate raspberry whipped ganache topped with a raspberry. It was rounded out by strawberry cake balls, chocolate cake balls, and a bowl of saltwater taffy in matching colors to the decorations.
 
 
 
I wanted everyone to have a little something as a thank you for coming to celebrate.
