I've been like Martha Stewart this past month getting shower stuff ready with three other ladies (Abby, Angie and Lisa) to make Betsy's shower perfect. I have to admit that we out did ourselves here, it was a travel theme (Cars, Planes, Trains, Trucks, etc) based off of their nursery. Here's a look at everything!
|Ticket to the Party|
|Bring a Book Poem|
Also included in the invites was a library card and envelope to put in the book you gave the baby with a little note.
|Spoon, Candy, Twine & Napkin|
|Hand Stamped Spoons|
|Guest Tables with Airplane Centerpieces|
|"Dump Your Gifts" Table|
|Guess the Cotton Balls|
|Luggage Baby Crossing Sign|
Finally, my favorite part!
This one wins for cutest dessert table I've ever made. Now all I want to do is outdo myself with something better! Luckily I have a bridal shower coming up that I'm baking for...

A few quick side notes. I made orange cake pops for the first time ever, they taste like creamsicles. Make them. Eat them. Now.
I have the cutest pregnant sister in the world.
I think all pregnant women are cute.
All baby showers should have little kids in attendance. They are hilarious to listen to.
My dad is the best handy man in the world.
My mom is the most amazing mom and mint maker ever. All of my creativeness comes from her. No offense dad. My ability to change a headlight, check the oil and change the washer fluid in my car comes from you. All are equally as important.
