Erin's Pink, Orange, and Red Baby Shower

February 23, 2012

I love baby showers. I also love bridal showers. Basically I love any type of party where I get to eat yummy food and decorate! And lucky me, I got to help plan Erin's baby shower last week in California. And it was gorgeous! Erin's sister Nicole, friend Sara, and I put our heads together and came up with an amazing shower for Erin and Baby Alexandria....Lexi for short.

Erin has had a bit of a sweet tooth throughout her pregnancy. Scratch that. She's always had a sweet tooth! So she requested lots of desserts and a candy bar. What the pregnant lady wants, the pregnant lady gets! We were all in love with how the candy bar turned out.

Me with the mommy to be!

Erin made the pretty table runner herself and I made the tissue paper pom poms and paper banners.

Erin and I got up at 6:00 a.m. to start working on the candy tags and place cards....they turned out SO cute! And by the way, those sour peach hearts were addicting! Once we opened the bag we couldn't get enough!

Drink station. We served pink lemonade, water, and champagne.

Photobucket
Obsessed with the cute paper straws! I picked the mini pinwheels up from Hobby Lobby.

Paper banner with Alexandria's name on it for the fire place and more tissue paper pom poms. Special thanks to my mom for helping cut out all of those triangles!

Photobucket
The cupcakes were picked out by Sara and designed by Cupcakes Couture in Manhattan Beach. They were amazing! 

Photobucket
I meant to have another cupcake  for breakfast the next day but totally forgot. Sad, sad day.

Lexi letters made out of tissue paper for our favor table.

Photobucket
Sara made these adorable dinosaur cookies as well as a cookie mix inside the mason jars as favors. So cute!

Photobucket
I got to be the gift girl. Baby Lexi got a bib from where Erin and I went to school, the University of Redlands....had to strike a pose!

Photobucket
These rice krispie treats were so yummy. I wanted to eat them all! The dessert table looked adorable too and had a huge tissue paper pom pom hanging above it....guess we forgot to take a picture of it. You can see it in the mirror in the first photo.

Photobucket
We served chocolate covered strawberries, pink chocolate covered marshmallows, lots of fruit, cheese and crackers, and mini brownies, all made by Nicole and Erin's mom. Sugar overload!

Photobucket
Onesie station organized by Sara. Confession: I didn't make one. Oops! I was on craft overload. But they turned out super cute.

Photobucket
Me, Erin, Nicole, and Sara. Thanks for a wonderful time ladies! And thank you to Erin and Sara for these beautiful photos!

Pinterest Love

February 22, 2012

Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm back from California and super tired but it was so worth it. I'll post some photos of Erin's amazing baby shower tomorrow. But until then, let's enjoy a little Pinterest love today!

Follow Me on Pinterest



Um, how adorable is this girl? I sort of want to be her. Love every
thing about her outfit. Why can't I look that cute on a rainy day?


Love the stripes in this hallway....we are going to paint our upstairs hallway soon...maybe I can talk the husband in to doing this!


I love these glass berry crates from Anthropologie....does anyone have them? I have no idea what I'd do with them, but that doesn't keep me from wanting a few of my own!


LOVE this idea....need to make something like this asap.


Use lace to frame a photo...such a cute and easy gift idea.

I also love this monogrammed bin. It would be adorable as a baby or wedding shower gift!


At Erin's shower we had some chocolate covered rice krispie treats....and now I can't get them out of my head! Maybe I'll whip up a batch this weekend.

What are your favorite pins this week?

Love Day

February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine's day! Thanks for all of your sweet comments yesterday about Sydney. I know my mom really appreciated your kinds words too.

The husband gave me Lady and the Tramp on blu ray and I made him chocolate covered strawberries. Sounds like the perfect Valentine's day to me! Enjoy your day!

Sydney

February 13, 2012

Photobucket
Over the weekend we had to say goodbye to my mom's dog Sydney. We got Sydney when I was a sophomore in high school and she was one of the sweetest dogs we've ever had. 

Photobucket
And the prettiest too.

Photobucket
It was so hard to say goodbye, but it was the right thing to do for our sweet girl.

Photobucket
Moving to Michigan was tough on her but she was such a trouper....this year was the first time she had ever been in the snow...and it didn't slow her down one bit. 

Photobucket
Wrigley is sure going to miss his best friend. We love you Sydney.
