The Baby Shower

If you have followed the blog, you will know that the DD's 'nursery theme' is little forest animals. Isn't this cake just the best?? I wish I could tell you I made it, but I didn't. My niece Jessie came up with it- it was just beautiful IRL! Those are Jolee's stickers around the edges, the rocks are chocolate rocks (shouts of 'can I have more rocks?' were heard all over the room, lol!!), the leaves and nest are not edible, but that big chocolate bird sure was!!

More little bitty animals on the favors. I made them from purchased favor bags that have little baby feet on them. Inside are pastel mint chocolates, green big round mints, and yellow lemon drop. They all had different ribbons, thanks to Martha Stewart. I just happened to grab two with the same colors when I took the photo. The tags also were different colors, with animals from Papertrey's Deer Friends and SU's Forest Friends. A little bit of Papertrey's Chai helped set off the tags; both sentiments are from Papertrey (Mixed Messages and Bitty Baby Blessings).

Today I have searched all of the Papertrey DT sites for posts I have missed over the past 2 months, and I have some pieces cut out for 2 baby cards, lol. It'd been a quiet day, just me and the computer and stamps.
