a whale of a shower...

another successful event...a baby shower! (in conjunction with a "big sister party")

THEME: whales, inspired by the baby bedding.

INVITATIONS: designed by erica, inspired by elsie flannigan--although i will take the credit for the stitching on the whales and the envelope liners matching ones for the sister party

CAKE: designed and baked by erica

FAVORS: i made paper cones and filled them with candy. each had a little whale


other fun things: onsie cookies (forgot to take a picture :( ), whale bean bags for the kids to play with, baby sized food, guest folders that had the game sheets and envelopes for each guest to address for the thank-you cards. (i made her thank you cards to match the invitations) and a baby dum dum bouquet that my kids took over, you can see it in their eyes!
