Good Monday Afternoon!
Being Monday, I should be doing my last week’s loves, but since I spent much of my weekend putting together and hosting a baby shower for my friend Amber, I thought I would share some highlights with you instead! It was a fun afternoon with some of my favourite ladies.
For the decor, I made a the little bunting banner with Amber’s name on it, and added some paper pom-poms (which Martha taught me how to do here) to make it feel a little more festive.
Some of the snacks and flowers for the party…I actually made enough small arrangements like the one below for everyone to take one home with them as a little gift. However, I failed to take pictures of any of them except this one!
Ummm….cake. The was my first foray into fondant icing. I made it from scratch and it was shockingly simple……except for the rolling of the fondant, my weak ass arms got a workout.
My friends and I aren’t really into baby shower games, so for an activity we created a ABC book for the baby. I bought some card stock, printed out some clip art, bought some letter stickers/stencils and kids colouring books and between the bunch of us we made pages for all the letters! We are going to get all the pages made into a book for the little one to learn his/her ABCs! I love this idea but I totally stole it from another baby shower I’d been to….no credit for me on this one.
All in all a great afternoon with great company. Here’s wishing Amber all the best for the remainder of her pregnancy, and I can’t wait to meet her new little one soon!
I’ll be back with last week’s loves tomorrow!
