Perfectly Pink Baby Shower

For those of you waiting on a kitchen cabinet update (is anyone waiting on a cabinet update?), they are done! I do not have pics yet because I literally have not been home during the day to take any! With school starting back and planning a party (keep reading), my days have been FULL! I promise some pics very soon if anyone is still reading…

On Saturday, I helped host a baby shower at my mom’s house for my cousin, Paige. Paige is expecting Baby Charlotte sometime the end of February. It was a family shower full of yummy food and pretty baby girl things.

Here’s the wreath I made for the front door. Two pink feather boas tied together and wrapped around a piece of pipe insulation makes a pretty wreath! I sprayed the pipe insulation pink in case any showed through all the feathers. Mom added a “C” for some cute personalization.

Mom made these cute topiaries! She wrapped feather string around a foam ball and secured the string with pins. She painted a dowel white and used glass beads in a small pink bucket to secure the topiary.

I designed the invitation using Pixlr and Picnik. Both are super easy to use, and I never thought I would say that I had designed an invitation! I will have a hard time paying someone to do them now.

The gorgeous flowers were done by a sweet friend! The china doll was mine as a child, and I can tell you that it’s a miracle it was not broken. I hated dolls!

My friend, MJ from 517 Creations, designed the beautiful “cupcake” toppers. Since we had brunch, they were placed in the Danish. Charlotte’s monogram and a pink baby onesie were the perfect little accent.

Aren’t they stylish and sweet? Thanks MJ!

We wrapped the forks in pink napkins and tied them with a pretty pink ribbon.

We had to have some pink rock candy stirrers for the coffee!

MJ also designed the “Sweet Baby Girl” banner that we hung going into and out of the “big room”.

Even the dog was festive!

The food included egg casserole, cheese grits, hot fruit, banana and pumpkin bread, sausage balls, Danish and Russian tea, coffee, and tea punch!

These two, Elliotte and my neice, Leah, were the life of the shower. E was so excited that Paige let her help open presents.

We had such a good time “showering” Paige and Baby Charlotte. We can’t wait to meet her!

I hope to have a kitchen cabinet post for you all very soon! Don’t you hate it when your day job gets in the way of your hobby?!
