Showered with love

Day 23: Before bedtime
Before bedtime is when I usually remember to take a few moments to blog... Yesterday I threw a fun shower for my cousin and her little boy on the way. It was exhausting, but fun to put together yummy food and fun little touches.

I created these fun invites to go with our stroller theme.

Fun straws with baby boy flags and lovely white Dahlias from my garden...

We pooled together and got some snazzy new wheels for the boy. There were some adorable outfits as well that I hope the beautiful mama will enjoy cozying her little boy into.

Yummy yummy food! Cucumber cups stuffed with Boursin cheese and topped with fresh cherry tomatoes, Waldorf salad served in butter lettuce cups, and these super tasty turkey dijon asparagus crescent rolls...

And of course we had to have some dessert. Banana pudding cupcakes and chocolate chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes. Yum!

This cute little clothesline of onesies provided a place to leave little notes for the baby...

A basket of diapers and pens to leave a note of encouragement for the parents during those many diaper changes! And finally everyone left with a huge homemade Mrs. Fields cookie in a cute treat bag. Such a fun afternoon.
