Baby Shower

Hi All, sorry I have been MIA from my blog and yours lately.  I did want to pop in and share some of the wonderful ideas my daughters BFF and her mother came up with for the baby shower they gave her back in October, they really blew me away!  It was all so beautiful and filled with so many wonderful and creative ideas too!   Many of the ideas came from Pinterest, at least their take on what they saw on Pinterest, what a fabulous tool that is!  Anyway I can't take credit for this but since I have a blog I wanted to share it with other Pinners and with my blog buddies.  They did such a beautiful job, I am sure it will help others planning too.  I really wanted to share some of the ideas here since they were definitely "Pin Worthy" so others could Pin these ideas forward too.
So what should I start with, the cake of course!  It was as delicious as it was beautiful, my mouth still waters for that delicious butter-cream frosting and moist sweet cake!  The tables were gorgeous with the tulle skirts they made and I loved the lime green, hot pink, teal and purple color scheme too!  It looked perfect with the deep purple walls in the school cafeteria where it was held.  Don't you love how they tied the sash of tulle to the cake platters too, it really dressed up the plain clear pedestals.
Whats next you ask?  The "Candy Bar", I had never heard of one before this, but I can tell you, this one was awesome!  All different kinds of candy dressed up in pretty containers, it really was a sight to see.
 Check out the decorations hanging above the table too!
As if candy did not look delicious enough on its own, all of the unique presentations made this look awesome!
I love the look of the jar of jelly beans layered in pink and green.
The sweet candy bags came from Paper Mart, the teal tulle did too.  A printed a thank you on a peel off sticker and a pink pregnant die cut to seal the bag of treats with.
She even wrapped up suckers with crepe paper to make them look like roses, then placed them in a bowl with plastic grass, I was amazed at how sweet it looked and how time consuming it must have been too!

A sweet little frame decorated in rhinestones to set on the candy table.
The beautiful plants on the tables did double duty as prizes also.

More of the beautiful decorations that were hung above tables, they really gave it such an elegant look!

I loved this idea, everyone made hair accessories and signed the tag so she will know who made what for her.  It was a fun activity for everyone to do also!
Plenty of glue guns and we used plastic cutting boards to protect the table from the glues mess.
There were 2 tables set up so everyone had plenty of room to work.
Lots of things to choose from too!
Great idea to use a jewelery tree to hang them on when they were done, you can see the little tags with string they put their names on.
This is the frame they are presently hanging the hair accessories on in her room.  This photo was taken right after the shower, it was on the floor here as they had not hung it yet.  She was so excited she had to load them all on right after the shower so she could see what they looked like!

Well, that's it, I hope you get some ideas from this next time you are involved in Baby Shower preparations, this shower was really beautiful, so well thought out and planned, I really can't thank them enough.

 Thanks for stopping by.  ~Diane
