A Mustache Themed Baby Shower

    A few weekends ago I attended a baby shower for my friend Melissa. We’ve been friends since middle school so it’s neat to celebrate all the big things in life together now.  Her shower was an mustache theme and it turned out so cute! It was great seeing old friends from high school and getting to play around with hairy mustaches:) Sorry the pics are such low quality, the lightening in the room wasn’t the greatest.  The momma to be and I.

    Baby Boy Owl Shower

    Last weekend I threw a baby shower for my co-worker Megan. We had a great time chatting, eating, and celebrating Megan and Baby Ryan.  My friend Alissa made the cutest and best tasting cake pops I’ve ever had. Aren’t they adorable?  I made owl cupcakes as well and I’ll do a post on how to make them soon. I also made this super easy DIY burlap banner.  Homemade white chocolate covered popcorn for party favors. This stuff was so good! Playing games. Present time! Now, whose next for a baby shower? Preferably one filled with pink, and ruffles, and all things girly!

    Cute as a Button Baby Shower

    One of my best friends and maid of honor is having a baby boy in February so we welcomed his soon to be arrival with a “Cute as a Button” baby shower. I went with a light blue chevron pattern and yellow for the colors. Love me some chevron!  Since my mom is also close to Meghan and her family, she graciously offered to have the shower at her house. Even though it was her house, my OCD was in full bloom and I had to arrange and prep everything myself:) I just can’t help it. The mommy to be. The mom to be with her mom.  I can’t wait…
