You can find out the supplies I used and see more pictures in my post HERE.
I'm the daughter of a special events planner, so of course I had to have some matching decor for those invites:
I made an upholstered bow tie for above the food table. Well, with a little help that is. My stepdad made the base out of wood and I covered it in batting and material. It was an amazing focal piece and just love how it turned out! My Auntie Jenny helped me out with the banner on the table. Of course I was getting low on time. :)
Greeting everyone before they came in the front door was this bow tie wreath that was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. I got a shirt at the thrift store, hacked it to pieces, and glued the portion I wanted onto a ribbon wrapped wreath form. Then I got to work and hand sewed a bow tie for the collar.
I carried the bow tie theme to the flower vases and glued one on each. I had little clusters of bow tie vases in select areas where I knew people would notice them.
And what's a baby shower without a diaper cake? This one was a group effort. Ok to be honest I only sewed the bow ties and glued them on. Thanks to my Mom, Sheri, and Auntie Jen it turned out beautifully.
Every good party needs some good food! My Mom and I did some serious time in the kitchen.
Citrus Cupcakes w/ Salted Vanilla Bean Buttercream
Miniature Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Fruit Salad in Citrus Peel Cups
Shrimp Salad in Phyllo Cups
Meat and Cheese Platter
Individual 7 Layer Dips
We also made Devilled Eggs and ordered three huge platters of sushi, but I forgot to take pictures of those. I had a fabulous time creating all the decor pieces and spending time with my Mom and Aunt as we prepared the food and decorated. It was THE shower of the town I'm told. :)
Thanks for letting me share. Back to all things Stampin' Up! tomorrow.
