Okay so I recognize that to have a successful blog one has to blog frequently! The last few weeks have been hectic. Every down second I have had I have spent it sleeping! My whole family had the flu, I have had *Luciandme* orders left and right, and my daughter has not been sleeping well. Not to mention this weekend was packed with things to do...Speaking of which, I wanted to share with you the baby shower my friend Molly and I threw for Monica over at MEphotographypics.blogspot.com, it was owl and birdie themed and it turned out great!
My sister in law and I made all of the cupcakes, Molly and I both made the diaper cake center pieces, and I made the invitations. It came out super cute. My favorite item of the shower was the party favor. I made Owl Pops. For those of you who are not familiar with "pops" you need to visit www.bakerella.com! This woman is amazing! I used her recipe for the pops and just hand formed them to make owl heads and then decorated them with chocolate and sprinkles.
What the molded cake looked like before I stuck in the sticks and decorated them...
Finished product! I am so exited about how they turned out! The little tags say "hoot hoot hooray! Thanks for coming today".
All in all, I think Monica had a really great time and I am so glad we spent all of the time we did on all of the details!
That is all I have for the moment. My friend Katie at honeysweet-ness.blogspot.com moved to Washington DC today with her hubby and we threw a small gathering for them this weekend. I have some fun pics to share I am just not ready to blog about it yet...too sad :( I promise I will not go so long until my next blog entry though.
