A Sweet Little Baby Shower!

Wow- I can't believe October is just around the corner!  The arrival of fall will bring a new arrival for one of my co-workers- a little baby girl!  So you know what that meant: a Baby Shower!!

The guest of honor's favorite color is purple, so I coupled shades of purple with a light gray for my color scheme and decided on the theme: "sweet baby girl".

I teamed up with my newly acquired Silhouette Cameo to create the centerpieces; SVG files are my new favorite thing! (I know...I'm so late! LOL) I knew I wanted to do a cube of some kind, so I downloaded an elephant, giraffe, and butterfly from the Silhouette Online Store to go around the sides.  But I wasn't sure what to put on top of the cube--until I found this ca-utest little baby shoe on the Cute As A Fox blog!  I knew then that I had found the perfect final element!  I created the shoes in pairs using various shades of purple and decorated the toes-- these have to be some of my most favorite decorations to date!

Another co-worker took care of ordering the cake and the amazing thing about it was that, while I didn't really talk with her about what I was doing with the centerpieces-- the cake features a pair of baby shoes at the top!  I love it when a plan comes together!

For the favors, I used matching patterned paper to make the sour cream containers I found on Splitcoaststampers.  I popped a couple of soft mints inside--perfect for after lunch!

All of my co-workers pooled our resources to give the guest of honor a nice gift card, so I knew I wanted to make a nice card to present it in.  I made a 5X7 card so it would be large enough for everybody to sign it.  Some coordinating paper, a giraffe on a rosette, and a little bit of bling-- and the card was done!  The rosette really made the card for me!

This baby shower was so much fun!  My co-worker really seemed to enjoy herself (and the cake)!  I'm so glad!!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you after my next Creative Daze!

Hey, this is a wonderful Sweet Little Baby Shower!! It was a stunning post that made my day. On last Saturday Night I too hosted a bridal shower dance party for my cousin and it just turned out to be a successful bash of my life. I had booked one of the best NYC venues for this garden party that I had booked from an online portal.

fisher price toys have been a permanent youth experience for a many individuals and generally viewed as "toys that never become old." Because of the strong effect that these astonishing toys have contributed for the people who had run over them.
