This party was a classic Baby Shower with natural elements and lots of texture.
One of my favorite party features is the bunting and I have been dying to do one using book pages. I am happy to say that Mommy loved it so much that it is now hanging in Baby Madelyn's Nursery. Adding a clothesline of some gently loved hand-me-downs was a nice way to add color and interest to a large non-focal wall.
I wish I could take credit for the awesome diaper cake in the center of this photo; but, I have to give love to my friend Faith. She is a diaper cake maniac! Her work is amazing! I love all of the sweet details.
The birdhouses on the mini diaper cakes are all hand painted (by moi) and are now sitting proudly on Madelyn's nursery room shelf.
One if my absolute favorite elements of this party was the use of ribbon. We hung it everywhere: from the ceiling, off the table, and on a wreath! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
This frame is from Ikea that was spray painted white; then, I hand cut the Monogram out of white paper and glued it onto the pink background. <3 Love!
The spread was simple with mini quiche, fruit, veggies, crackers, spinach-artichoke dip, assorted cheeses, cupcakes and lemon cake.
I just had to have acorns at this woodland themed party! These acorns were so easy to make - just hershey's kisses, mini nilla wafers and some chocolate frosting. So stinkin' cute!
This Lemon Rosette Cake was made by my friend Maggie at Sweetwater Baby. Please hop over to see her post about this DELICIOUS and GORGEOUS cake.
We had fun playing silly party games - like when we gave them a pen, paper, and a book, then made them draw a picture of Baby Madelyn - ON TOP OF THEIR HEADS! So much fun!
This has been absolutely one of my favorite parties, so far. Welcome, Baby Madelyn!
