Baby Love

A couple of weeks ago, my mom and I threw a baby shower for one of my best friends. We had a lot of fun. The theme was pink and grey with accents of chevron, polka dots, and butterflies.

Instead of a traditional banner, I decided to make paper garlands. I could not stop myself from making them. They are sew simple to make (hehe)! 

Instead of ordering a cake, I made cupcakes. I love any excuse to use my favorite 2-tier stand! I went with 2 flavors of box cake with homemade cream cheese icing found here. They were seriously to die for.

I really wanted to learn to pipe icing like bakeries and thought this was the perfect time to try. I watched several YouTube videos and decided the Wilton 2D tip was the look I was going for. I really love how they turned out.  Aren't they pretty? They remind me of roses.

One of her gifts was this butterfly mobile for Baby's room. My mom and I made it together and absolutely love how it turned out. We hope Baby loves looking at it!

For the punch, we made Strawberry Lemonade. Oh-My-Lanta. It was amazing and super easy to make too. Here's the recipe if you're interested in making it.

Well that's about it for now. Until next time :)
