Baby Shower :: Sugar & Spice Theme

Today I am thrilled to share with you a really fun “Sugar & Spice and Everything Nice” baby shower my friend Jess put on her for her sister-in-law Lisa. What a FABulous job she did! Aside from helping her with the printables, Jess and her mom did everything themselves. I am totally dying over the lollipops up the driveway! What a way to set the tone!Jess’ friend Christina of A Sweet Addition created this gorgeous candy bar. Jess made the cake pops herself. I just love pink and green for baby showers! So fresh!Balloons, tissue poms, and banners were hung everywhere.I keep saying baby “shower” but really this was a “sprinkle.” This is Lisa’s second child but first girl! How sweet! Above the photobooth Jess requested a sign that said “Say Grace!” since the baby girl will be named Gracie. Just adorable. One of my favorite touches was the pink sugar-rimmed mimosa glasses. How much fun would it be to drink out of these?Jess’ best friend’s mom, Barb Sowles, made the banner for the mantle among other adorable things like pillows, quilts, etc. She is a master seamstress… If you’re interested in anything of the sort, leave me a comment and I will see if she’s taking on extra orders.The clothesline got a fun kick with the addition of GRACE spelled out.One of the dearest things they did was create big baby blocks for the guests to sign. What a great keepsake and they already have a home in Gracie’s room. I love this idea and have never seen anything like it before. So clever.sdsfJess was a busy bee because she sent everyone home with cupcakes in little mason jars. Just adorable. You guys really nailed it with all the fun details. Thanks for the photos of this sweet sprinkle! I think I need me a cupcake!


Sip & See :: Pinwheel Theme

Who’s ready for some serious cute? My clever friend Katherine once again put together a smashing success of a stylish and fun party. Her daughter Carter was ready for her big debut and Katherine and her huz P.J. hosted a gathering to sip and see their wee one.Katherine is a very talented graphic artist and also has a great eye for parties. Duh! Look at this shindig! I can’t imagine how long making all those pinwheels must have taken!In addition to pinwheels, they used other spinning objects like hula hoops and tops as decor because their “hearts were spinning with joy” for Carter. How cute is that? Here’s the invite she sent:Pinwheels lined the path to their front door…… and showed up ON the front door as well! Another fabulous wreath! Wow!In the backyard, pinwheels floated overhead.I love the graphics here. It’s like what you see when a pinwheel spins super fast. Very clever and subtle.One of my favorite details was this loopy garland. Have you ever seen anything like this? I haven’t! Katherine, you might be starting a party trend here. What a great idea.Look how cool it looks! Love this view of the room. And how fun are the individual bowls for the Krispy Kremes?She seriously outdid even herself on this one. You may remember her other parties I posted on… the gingham gathering and the something sweet supper club dinner. I’m so thrilled she lets me share all these shebangs with you! Especially since I don’t often get to go girly in a house full of boys.And let’s end this party with the sweetest little guest of honor, Carter. Could you die over that pinwheel hairband? Katherine made it! Some people just have creativity in their soul. I’m spinning with excitement over this party! Thanks for sharing guys!
