|Here I am at my baby shower, sitting in my special chair |
(decorated with tulle, ribbon and flowers)
that felt like a throne and made for great pics!
See below for some great shots from my Little Pumpkin themed baby shower. It was a wonderful time full of friends, family & presented plenty of DIY opportunities! Big thanks go out to my sisters in law, mother in law, and mom & aunt for all their help working with me to put this party together!
It was perfect for a gender neutral shower. Inspired by A to Zebra Celebrations, I made banners to hang over a fireplace and across various tables at the party. We also used a lot of pumpkins (both real and faux),we made tissue poms to hang from the ceilings, and instead of ordering a cake, we baked cupcakes and I simply used Wiltons 1M tip to make professional looking frosting swirls! Here are some pics!
Enjoy xoxo Hattie
|A DIY banner, pumpkins and fall silk flowers were a perfect touch!|
|I adore my centerpieces. Mason jars with candy corn and silk flowers.|
We added rafia and ribbon to the jar and voila! Perfection! (And so easy!)
(& I love the palm tree that can be seen in the background of the photo!)
|Duncan Hines cupcakes and frosting. Easy peezy.|
The trick was using Wiltons 1M decorating tip
to make professional looking frosting swirls and adding a topper.

|Usually I make the diaper cakes around here!|
But my mom insisted she make mine! It was so cute!
|Another banner displayed on the gift table tells my guests how much |
we appreciate their thoughful & precious baby gifts!
