Baby Shower Share

Well I'm finally going to share some photos from my baby shower.
Let me just say I found tons of inspiration on the internet and I will do my best to share where I found it. :)
My best friend and my cousin helped me out so much making all the stuff to decorate. We put a lot of work into my shower. Lots of late nights and fun girl time. We really had a blast and in the end it paid off. Everyone had such a good time at the get together and everyone was very impressed at all the work that went into it. I was just happy the day finally came and I actually had time to get ready. *laugh
So when I found out I was having a girl I started planning the shower straight away. Since I'm not real big on themes I just based it aroundcolorsand vintage stuff and birds got thrown in there too, of course. ;)
I tried my hand at invitations and I think they came out pretty cute. :) I filled in personal info with white. :) Used Rhonna brushes from Two Peas In A Bucket.
One day while I was web browsing scrapbooking blogs I came across this color palette at the Pink Paislee Blog.
Gorgeous right? As soon as this caught my eye I knew I wanted to do my shower in these colors and have lots of tissue pom poms. Here are the photos...
I purchased the chinese lanterns at Asian Imports for a really cheap price.Lots of great colors to choose from and all sorts of sizes too. We had homemade lemonade and delicious sweet tea. Served in ball jars with pink striped straws purchased at Hey YoYo. Lots of desserts at the dessert table. Homemade cupcakes, cake, cakepops, sugar cookies, and lots of pink candy. I had found a tutorial on youtube to make the buttercream rose cupcakes, but now I can't find it to share. :( Let me just say it's a lot harder than it looks and your hand will definitely be aching after some forty cupcakes later. HaHaHa But I thought we did a fairly nice job for our first time.
And I HAD to try this ruffle tower cake for my cake. And the inside was Neapolitan. Too bad I didn't get a photo after they cut it, it looked so pretty. BTW the cake was sooooo delicious. Yum. I wish I had a piece right now. HaHa I got inspiration to do the cake bunting from the fabulous Green Vintage Limited on Etsy.
I made lots of banners. One said "Hooray for Little Girls", another said "She Will Be Loved", and I made an alphabet one with the playing cards from My Mind's Eye. I also made doily garlands, paper garlands like the ones in my etsy, I made a bunting based off of inspiration from these gorgeous buntings on etsy, also made a garland just like this beautiful one Linda made. We had lots of beautiful roses and carnations mixed in all sorts of different vintage jars and vases. I had framed some pretty cool pieces from Doll Face Designs on Etsy also had some vintage paintings around as well and I didn't catch a photo, but I purchased 36" balloons from the Balloon Warehouse. I thought the price was fare and I loved them! I will definitely be ordering from them again and again. I was so busy I didn't get very many pictures. Really disappointed about it now. There was so much stuff and detail I should have made time to take better photos. :(
Well that's all from my shower. I had sucha a good time and so did everyone who joined us. Thanks again for stopping by. I hope to be back again soon.
