Oh Boy!

Last week I hosted a baby shower for 3 women in my neighborhood. Each of them are expecting boys in the next 2 months. For the gifts I decided to sew some rag quilt blankets. These were so fun and simple! Before I've sewn then in blocks but this time I did them in strips. It went so much faster! Each blanket took about an hour to make. I decided to get a book to go with the theme of the fabric.
One of my friends baked this cake. Amazing huh?

Have you seen those cupcake toppers? They are everywhere! But I didn't have the money to buy any. So I made my own out of scrapbook paper. I really like how they looked on top on the cupcakes.
I also made a dum dum sucker topiary. It took me a while to make it but I think it was well worth it. Don't you?
I decided to go with blue, yellow and green. For the menu we had Chicken Salad Sliders, fruit and cupcakes. Simple yet good.
I wish all the girls the best of luck and hope all continues to go well!
