oh, baby!

October 19, 2010

Remember the Crazy Crafting Frenzy of 2010 as mentioned in my last post? Well here are the real photos of what my partner-in-crime Grace and I were up to: prepping for the mother of all baby showers.

The star-studded (literally!) outer space-themed baby shower featured a Stitch-topped diaper cake, pastry table, waffle bar and copious amounts of banners and balloons, most of which were in blue. No cigars for guessing why!

All the decorations were lovingly handmade, which I think added a really nice personal touch. My freehand rocket ship turned out pretty good, if I don’t say so myself.

We filled acrylic trays and stands with enough sweets to take care of any craving: macarons, cookies and cupcakes with – what else? – blue icing.

I’m happy to report that Geri, our guest of honor, loved it – especially the cake topper. Apparently, because of her appetite lately, her husband’s pregnancy nickname for her is Stitch! What a funny coincidence!

I had to include these photos of the glowing mom-to-be and her sister, Marilyn. Aren’t they both gorgeous? You can tell that they were having a blast, which totally made our day too.

Congratulations Geri! We can’t wait to meet baby Jake…and start planning his first birthday party!
