Pretty in Pink Baby Shower

I had so much fun preparing and crafting for my dear friend Julie's baby shower at my home. I threw it with another one of her girlfriends and everything came together flawlessly.  I just wanted a super girly fun theme.  We welcomed sweet baby Bella into the world last May.

Amazing cake pops for dessert made by my sister.  They are stuck in galvanized buckets with floral foam in the bottom to hold the sticks and some rocks to hold it steady.
 Fun paper straws to use in our Mason Jar drinks found on ETSY.  Mason jars filled with yummy alcoholic and non-alcoholic punch.  Mini water bottles wrapped with ribbon.
 Mommy-to-be enjoying our fun drinks!
 Hand made tissue paper poofs.
Brunch food spread.  Variety of quiches, cheese and crackers, mini turkey sandwiches.
 Yogurt parfait bar.
 Individual veggie cups with dip in the bottom.
Cupcake BABY letters.  I made them by purchasing wood letters at the craft store and cupcake liners. I then hot glued them to the wooden letters.

Clothing line...Created the tutu (click on the picture for tutorial).   Made the burp cloths, onesie with initial for her name, and headbands all to match.
Purchased the cute shoes and socks.  Flowers are made from dyed coffee filters.
For the games I ordered small clipboards online and then decorated them with scrapbook paper using Mod Podge and tied ric rack on the top.  Pens have artificial flowers on top, made by wrapping with floral tape.
Pre-made jars with cookie mix for the game prizes.
Spay painted baby food jars with metallic paint, tied a small ribbon and filled with fresh flowers.  We used this as our favors.
We had a flower clip and headband making station.
Making accessories for baby Bella.
The hosts and Mommy-to be!

What a fun day filled with love and laughter!
