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!
