Triplett Baby Shower

This weekend I threw a baby shower for our sweet friend Ashley and her husband David who are anticipating tripletts! Thats right three babies all at once! The design was a birds nest with three little eggs and the momma bird watching over them. The color palatte was a light pink, tiffany blue and chocolate brown. Everything came together so nicely and the shower went off without a hitch! I even attmepted a cupcake tree which stayed intact through the entire shower!  The babies are due in a few short months and we can't wait to meet them! Congratulations to Ashley and David!

Firetruck Party Extravaganza!

This Sunday we celebrated our little boys turning 5 and 3 years old with a big Firetruck celebration! I designed an entire sweets table just for them and 23 of there best friends! We started the party off with a trip to our local firestation for a tour and then headed back to our house for lunch and treats! Lots of fun was had by all and many wonderful memories were made! Everything from the party was DIY by yours truly! Even the cake which I made and then decorated with sugar cookies. Enjoy!!!
Each child had a thank you dalmation cookie bone in their goodie bags!

This is the sweets table I put together. Lots of goodies made by yours truly!

My first experience into cake making and decorating! I used sugar cookies for the decorations.

Balloon wreath I made for our front door.

Nautical baby shower

Well hello there! Lots of post all at once for this busy mom of two! Gotta do it when I get a minute of peace! As you can see by the gaps in my posting there are not too many of those moments! This week I  worked on a nautical themed baby shower for a little boy due in August. I made chocolate fudge cake pops and sailboat cookies for favors. Enjoy!

Bumble Bee Baby Shower

This weekend my friend Jessica and I hosted a baby shower for our friend Roxann and her soon to be little baby boy Connor! We choose a bumble bee theme and ran with it. I made lemon chiffon cupcakes and bumble bee cookies for this shower. Fun was had by all and lots of love sent to baby Connor! Enjoy!
