Indian Themed Baby Shower Invite

Loving this Indian themed Baby Shower invitation I created for two of our friends who are expecting TWINS all the way from India this March. They don't know the sex of the babies so I went with some fun colors that fit their style. (They have this robin's egg blue color in their kitchen and I just LOVE it!)

 Congrats, Eric + Mike! Can't wait to meet the twins :)

One Fish + Two Fish = New Fish - Baby Boy Shower

This past weekend my girlfriends and I threw our good friend's couples baby shower! It was inspired by the Dr. Seuss book, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. The daddy-to-be LOVES to fish so thought it would be the perfect theme. I added my own little twist to it using the primary color scheme that matches the popular book. Guests wrote a little message in the actual book for them to read again for years to come. 

The fabulous Lynlee of Lynlee's Petite Cakes made the ADORABLE fondant cupcake toppers (last photo) to match the invite - they were the hit of the table! Absolutely perfect! My good friend, Ann, who helped throw the shower made the adorable sugar cookies - soooo darn cute and yummy too! And you can't have a party without Lillycakes so of course those were on the menu :) I found the cute containers that displayed the Cake Pops at Pier One on clearance.  Sorry in advance for the not-so-awesome photos taken by my phone. Next time, remember your camera, Michelle! ;)

It was such a fun night and we can't wait to meet Baby P!!! :)
