Welcome baby!

As promised, photos from the baby shower I helped host.

In January, a couple friends and I hosted a baby shower for a dear friend. She's a reading specialist and when planning the decor of the party I wanted to include that in the theme.
I did so by including mini chalkboard labels for all the food, reading flashcards, and the tags for the shower favors.
I love how everything came together. It was lovely!

The invitations I shared in an earlier post. Info was printed on pink paper and attached to the other side.

Those hearts make me smile.

I loved making these cupcakes, they were perfectly sweet. Devil's food cake with chocolate and vanilla buttercream frosting.

For the flashcards, I typed what I wanted in my word processor, printed, and cut them out.

Romaine lettuce, sliced strawberries, Mandarin oranges, chopped walnuts, and poppy seed dressing. (I use Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing.)

My wonderful friend who opened her home for this special occasion put together all the drinks and flowers. This flower display in the old Mason jars was my favorite.

Everything about this shower was sweet. My friend felt spoiled and that's what matters the most.
