Traci, fully expressing her lively and creative side with pink accents in her hair, absolutely loved it and had so much fun being celebrated. She was especially a fan of the flower poms, the banner, the diaper cake, and the cake pops. Using my inspiration from the lovely blogging world, I (WE - thank you Kevin!), made everything except the candy in the jars and the cupcakes (which her husband made). The only bummer part was how hard it was to get a good picture of the table because of the sun shining in!
These are chocolate chip cookies made with the best recipe ever! My high school youth minister's wife and a sweet friend of mine is known for these delicious cookies. I'll be sure to share the recipe soon!
Well, bakerella definitely knows what she's talking about! These cake pops were a hit. I did use yellow cake mix though, and I incorporated the entire batch of homemade cream cheese frosting I made, which made them a little mushier inside than I would have liked.
Powder puff strawberry chex mix from chex.com. I thought this was a bit too tart, but the kids loved it!
I made a yummy pink fruit dip with an 8 oz. container of sour cream, a 3oz box of instant vanilla pudding, an 8 oz. container of cool whip, a splash of milk, and red food coloring. Yum!
I found these bud vases for $1.99 at Michael's. Love those peonies!
The branches were "Blessings for the Baby." I had little note cards that guests could write sweet notes or prayers for the baby on. The tray has strawberries and oreos covered with Wilton candy melts. I also found some adorable pink pearl candy to sprinkle on the oreos. Fun!
I loved that the diaper cake turned out. However, I didn't totally follow the directions as far as buying the "swaddler" diapers. The infant ones have blue on them, but you can't tell too much.
I mod podged a cute piece of scrapbook paper onto a $5.00 frame from Michael's. Baby girl is looking quite cute!

Kevin enjoyed the fruit of his labor by playing golf with my brother that afternoon. He was such a huge help in putting all of it together!
Congratulations Traci! Enjoy your new baby girl in only a couple weeks!
