The Baby Shower Post

I put a lot of work into the shower for Baby Kloe. There was some major worrying about Kloe getting here BEFORE the party, but *whew* that did not happen. I learned my lesson about planning a shower at least 1 FULL month before the due date! Anyway, I made some great decorations that I will for sure make at future parties. Here's the party in pictures...

mama of the day - Nichole
the banner (that will hang in the baby's room)

the spread
of course, pink, fuzzy punch
paper cupcakes
a little pre-party visit from the dad (he's totally stealing a croissant!)
He was there because I forgot to print one of the games & he came to the rescue with my laptop (pink to match the party of course - lol)

these tissue paper balls made the party & were easy to make
pinwheel favors for the guests. 

I just love an excuse for a pink party - too bad we don't have another expectant mom in our group! Most of my decorations were made with Cosmo Cricket Scrapbook Paper and I found the templates and tutorials for almost everything online.

Hi Melanie! I have been reading your blog for awhile now, but don't think I've ever introduced myself....Hi! I'm Katie and I LOVE these little shoes! After looking at the pattern, I got to thinking, these would be perfect for a mini project! Mind if I post a link to your blog on my blog about them?? Wish I knew you when I was planning my baby showers ever so long ago.....How Perfect! Love all that pink!!!
