I started out on Friday night making the cupcakes and cookies. Also please notice the GIANT to-do list.... I guess I am more OCD than I thought. I had specific things planned out to do each day starting with Tuesday before the Saturday shower.
Also please notice the insane amount of bananas! I had a recipe for banana mousse. It was good, but I only used 1/2 of the bananas called for in the recipe, and obviously this has a ton of bananas in it! Also mine was not nearly as pretty as the one in the picture on the recipe, but here it is:
These are some of the desserts. The round cookies have a "G" on them for Graham, and the other weird shaped ones are onesies. We aren't going to have a close-up, since my decorating on the cookies was sub-par, but they were tasty!
We had a bunch of leftover cupcakes and cookies, so I took them to church on Sunday and said the cookies were G for God. ha! That was Lydia's idea and it made me laugh! Oh and also that 3 tier thing that the cookies are on- yeah. How long do you think it should take an engineer to put that together?!? I felt so dumb when I figured out that I had the black part upside down! haha!
Here's an up close view of the vanilla cupcakes. They were blue since it was a baby boy shower- duh. And I made little blue vanilla candy razorbacks for the top of the cupcakes since Lyndsey is such a big Razorbacks fan and it was also a game day. This was my first time to use my Razorback candy mold and I think they turned out cute!
And this is a close-up of the chocolate cupcakes. I just love those pearl sprinkles!
This was the punch. I found these ducks at Target and thought they were so cute!
This was the fireplace. The bags each have a letter on them to spell out "Baby Shower" and each has a gift inside corresponding to the letter on the bag. I love this game!
I made this sign to hang on the front door. It was fun to make and I think it is super cute!
Here is a picture of me and the guest of honor!
Me with my friends Ashley and Cherry:
I would say the shower was a success! There were not a ton of people there, but enough that we had a good time and the house was not super crowded. Baby Graham got a lot of stuff! Can't wait to meet him!
