Bebe Shower

I hosted a baby shower last night for my friend Katie. She is having a girl, hence the pink and brown galore.

I hung up onesies in the front window.

These topiaries were kind of an afterthought. I had everything made for the shower and decided I couldn't resist making some of these with my leftover paper. Little did I know they would require the purchase of a mini saw and a late night trip to the store to get different types of pins that wouldn't kill my fingers. I finished the topiaries at 1am the evening before the shower, but I was happy with the result. They added a nice touch and a bunch of the ladies even gathered around while I gave them step by step instructions on how to make them.

My most proud accomplishment was that I sewed for the first time ever. I knew these nursing covers/hooter hiders were easy to make, so I ventured out and bought a teeny, cheap little sewing machine and went to town. Of course I had to have thorough instructions from my mom, but I did it. Now Troy can't give me a hard time about not being able to hem his pants. Because I bet I could do it.

I got to use my little cupcake stand again, and, you guessed it, displayed pink and brown cupcakes and toppers.

Just beverages, I know, but don't they look pretty?

My friend Yuki made the darling mommy-to-be an amazing diaper cake.

I am so grateful for the ladies that helped pull off this shower.
