But in the mean time here is a baby shower I got to help set up. It was pretty fun and with a budget much bigger then I am used to I got to be the "decorator". It was great fun and I just wanted to show you a couple of pictures from the event.
Our theme was teddy bears and since it was Halloween we decided to use the Halloween colors but add hot pink and purple with polka dots, too.
The cake was made by a bakery in Clarendon Hills that makes the most adorable cakes, but this week was her last week of making cakes. I am sure there are a lot of sad people wishing she was still in business.
I just love the place mats that Allison found. They were amazing. It doesn' help that she has an adorable house and it was very easy to dress it up.
I spent a little time making this diaper cake for the mom to be. It was fun and I loved that with just a couple simple flowers and ribbon, it made it so adorable. Here is the link to the YouTube video I used to help me figure out how to make it. http://youtu.be/bFwZOvn4AqI
Here is the spread. Chicken salad on croissants, cheese with crackers, strawberry spinach salad, pasta salad, grapes and vegetables. It was all so yummy.
We placed all the gifts in a bassinet to continue with the baby theme. It is covered in this picture, but you get the idea. They were overflowing and it made such nice place to keep them until we were done.
Here is a picture of the cute mom to be and her mom next to the huge teddy bear they got to take home. The were a little surprised that they got to take it home, but I think she was pleased. I am not sure it will fit in her apartment but she can figure out what to do there. We hope that everything goes well and that cute little girl is born safe, sooner rather then later.
