Showers, Popcorn, and Lots o’ Cupcakes

May 18, 2011


Last weekend, my best friends, Jaymee and Sarah, and I hosted a baby shower for our darling prego lover, Heather.  We decided on a carnival themed shower because a.) we love desserts and candy; b.) we love stripey straws; and c.) we love flag bunting.

The party turned out just perfect thanks to Jaymee’s amazing decor and signage (which, by the way, Jaymee has a new blog and it’s the cutest EVER and and anddd she does the most AMAZING graphic design i.e. blog headers, invitations, logos, ANYTHING IN THE WORLD so hit her up if you need some design done!).  I mean, look how adorable those signs are!!

Sarah and I were in charge of all food and boy oh boy did we whip up lots o’ food.  We made a fruit salad, green salad, my favorite Mediterranean orzo salad, a million pretty cupcakes, fresh homemade strawberry lemonade, and watermelon mint lemonade (those lemonade recipes will be posted soon as Sarah and I created quite a delicious concoction!!).  We also had trays of pasta ordered.  Everything was yummy.  And the best part was that preggy Heather loved it all and that’s what matters!!

PLUS, all of my best friends flew out from all over the good ol’ USA and I swear to you, we always have the BEST time when we’re all together.  Miss them already.

Our lemonade station complete with mason jars and stripe straws we got from Shop Sweet Lulu, as I posted here:

I made the cupcake flag toppers using this tutorial.  How sweet are they:

The candy station full of sweet treets:

P.S. not pictured are the most adorable striped pinwheels that Jaymee made.  I took 3 photos of them, all of which are blurry.  I need to learn how to use a camera oouuffff.
