Archive for the ‘Baby shower’ Category

Oh dear Internet, things in this side of the coast have been chaotic to say the least. With my school,  Joshua going to school (another post on its own…), relatives visiting, parties being planned and the whole mother/wife thing,  it just seemed that 24 hours were not enough. But we are now slowly going back to our regular routine.

I was asked to plan a baby shower for a sweet mommy-to-be expecting her first baby – a baby girl. The grandma’s to be were the ones hosting the shower and they wanted the party to have a wintery feel to it.

A few months back I came accross a post from Hostess with the Mostess where Jennifer created this adorable Yarn Pom Snowpeople and I knew right away that I wanted to create that for this baby shower too. It was just too YARN cute!!

I went with an apple green and fuchsia color and the first thing I created was the invitation. From there I started to work on the SnowLadies ( so easy to make and came out so adorable!!) and the rest was history 🙂

I created a dessert table using a vintage iron Corsican crib.  Once again may favorite cake stands came to play and oh did they play… I just love how versatile they are…a change of ribbon and voila…PERFECT!!

We had baby vanilla cupcakes, baby jars with coconut custard, pink and green M&Ms, Coconut bonbons and Hazelnut bonbons. Delicious!!!!

S’mores wrapped in cellophane and tied with ribbons were placed on each table set with a little poem chosen by the family.

I also did a diaper cake ( my second one, YAY) and I love how it came out!And I also made table runners for this party ( NO SEWING REQUIRED) using just fabric, ribbon and a hot glue gun 🙂

I had a so much fun creating the special things for this shower and I hope you enjoy how it turned out.

If you follow my blog you’ll know that I have a crush on the Brazilian site Casamenteiras. Not only do they have great articles and inspirations but the girls behind it ( Karen, Karla and their newest member, Raquel) are the sweetest girls ever!

So when I saw this darling baby shower that Karen had put together to celebrate the welcoming of her baby boy I couldn’t resist but to share it with you.

Love the pastel colors used throughout the decor and all the yummy treats at the desert table.

Look at this cake…I’m loving the details

Beautiful, right? You can see more pictures and the full post here.

Congratulations Karen!!

Happy Wednesday!

This past weeks I’ve been a bit ( more like a lot, right?!!) away from the blog world but not even for a  moment has my mind gone on vacation. I’ve been working on a few projects, some are from customers from my etsy store, others from friends’ references and I’m also planning a bridal shower and a baby shower  that will take place within the next 2 months.

But today I want to share with you a very sweet and adorable shower that my sister-in-law did for my soon to be born niece, baby Raquel. They live in Brazil and she says that since I showed her the blogging world her party planning life changed, forever 🙂 You see, in Brazil parties were normally decorated with panels, styrofoam and lots, lots of balloons, not that there is anything wrong with that, but sometimes the look  just ends up being very busy and pricey but I have to say that more and more people are going for the clean look and I’m just loving it.

I love the fabrics she chosen, the baby shoes  filled with candy she made herself (I see a tutorial coming our way),  the diaper cake (it’s a new thing for Brazilians), the colors and all love she put into each little detail. Oh, and I love the cute banner, guess who designed it? 🙂

Look how adorable this dresses made out of napkins are and look at the ribbon on the side of the tablecloth…ohhh….so darling!!

I just wished I was there… and I can’t wait to meet baby Raquel! She’s is already so loved and cherished.

What do you think? I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to learn how to make those cute baby shoes! Stay tunned for the tutorial 🙂

Happy Thursday and to all my Brazilian readers…enjoy the 4 days long weekend ahead of you 🙂

I received a phone call  last week that made me jump with joy, my brother is expecting a second baby and is a GIRL! YAY!!The funny thing is that they are only 8 weeks pregnant and already know is a girl. How, you may ask me. You see they have a blood test ( in Brazil) that can tell you what you are having  and it can be done as early as 8 weeks into the pregnancy.

 My sister-in-law and I share the love for all things pretty and we are now planning her baby shower. So I’ve been searching the net for inspiration, and oh boy, did I love this party, Of course it came from my favorite site Casamenteiras
