Danelle’s Carnival Themed Baby Shower

My great friend Danelle is having a baby boy!

Isn’t she cute? (Pay no attention to my MAJOR cheese here. Thanks.)

I teamed up with her mom and sister to throw a fun, carnival themed shower this past weekend. We had a blast celebrating this little man’s soon-to-be arrival!

Frosted Cakery (my mother- and sister-in-law) helped me come up with some yummy desserts and did such a great job with them! ¬†They made red velvet whoopie pies (YUM.), mini cupcakes, lollipop cookies and the cutest cake I’ve ever seen. I die a little every time I look at it.

We filled sweet little popcorn boxes with kettle corn and my Lord, it was addictive! Carmel apple suckers, animal crackers, lemon heads and a ton of other goodies were available to guests to snack on as well. SUGAR COMA. That’s all I have to say.

The guests sipped on their drinks from mason jars, which is pretty perfect since the baby’s name is going to be Mason. :)

Oh, and because I’m such an amazing photographer (HAH, no.), I took one or two really horrible, blurry photos of the tables with those felt pinwheels as centerpieces. NONE of them turned out, but they were pretty freakin adorable.

Danelle, I love you to death! I hope you enjoyed your party, and we all can’t wait to meet Mr. Mason!

Sometimes I Make Things – Felt Pinwheels

I spent the afternoon making these felt pinwheels and I’m kind of obsessed. Me and a few others are throwing a carnival-themed baby shower for a dear friend of mine in a few weeks. I’m thinking a bundle of these in an old mason jar would be quite adorable as a centerpiece, don’t you?

I’m so excited to see how this shower comes together. I’ve recruited my talented sister-in-law of Frosted Cakery to help me with cupcakes and other sweet goodies to go on the dessert table. I also ordered some of these striped straws from Hey Yoyo to work into the mix. I die.

I’ll be sure to take a ton of pictures to show you all when the time comes!
