kami's baby shower

on saturday afternoon, i hosted a baby shower for a sweet friend, kami and her baby to be, parker! we did a milk and cookies theme which was so much is the mama beside the sweets table!
the color theme was hot pink, yellow, and gray. i made the pom poms from tissue paper and hung them from the dining chandelier.
i made the cupcakes-they were strawberry with buttercream frosting. the cute pink and white polka dot cupcake liners i got from hey yo yo. my sweet mom made her delicious chocolate chip cookies, and then we had a candy bar with take home treat bags-watermelon sours, lemon drop, and jelly beans!
i used target brand and starbucks frappucino bottles to drink the milk out of and the cute gray and white straws are from hey yo yo. i got the cute milk containers from hobby lobby and filled them with chocolate and white milk.
we made flower arrangement in mason jars tied with a raffia ribbon
i used pink paislee 'soiree' scrapbook paper for the parker banner along with little embellishments to make it blingy, and we added pom poms to either side of the banner.
we had an advice tree on the entry table...i spray painted tree branches from our yard hot pink and made little yellow cards for everyone to write words of mama advice for kami. it turned out so cute!!
i could not have done all of this without the help of my mom, sis, and niece. thank you so much!
me, mckinlee, and susanne
and our littlest guest was baby addison, who was born 7 weeks early, but she is doing fantastic and is the cutest thing. her mama's due date was tommorrow. wow!
we mainly had sweets to eat, but i did make the yummiest chicken pasta salad and served it with garlic crostini. jennifer brought a veggie tray with the best dip ever.

it was a super fun afternoon and kami got so many cute things for baby parker. i can't wait until she arrives!!

  6. Wow!! Such a lovely baby shower. I really loved it and the arrangements are superb. The milk cookies are looking so delicious. I am too planning my sister’s bridal shower at one of LA venues. Thinking to arrange similar cookies there. Surely everyone will enjoy those.
