I have THREE baby showers this weekend! Two yesterday and one at 4pm today. It's kept me soooo busy. LOL Tons of fun, but lots of work. The one shower I threw for my friend who hates pink I did all the decorating myself. Here are some pics.
Because I DON'T decorate cakes (wish you lived here Linda!!!!) I rolled fondant, cut circles, then topped it with some cuts from the cricut:
The cake matched the invites I did. I could kick myself for not taking a pic of them. They turned out sooo cute....Black and red framed layered over Kraft with that cut and a red ribbon. If I get one of them I will take pics.
As centerpieces I bought flowers and made these to go in them:
They doubled as door-prizes. Saved money that way!
The entrance of the building we rented. The marquee is in need of repair, but I stuck the announcement in there anyways.
And I never snapped a pic of the card I made her, but here she is holding it up.
And some cards. I made this first one for my friend MaryAnn.

I love the color scheme of the baby shower. If I have to throw one again I think I would copy it. I love non-traditional colors for baby related stuff.
The cards are adorable too. That is a lot of detail in the card date one, and the one for your sister is so elegant.
