Last weekend I was a hostess for a baby shower for my good friend Julie. She's due to have her baby girl, Finley, in about a month. Finely is who I made the word art for shown here. It was fun to see the talents each hostess brought to the table.

For the shower I made a diaper cake centerpiece using Anthropologie's gift wrap as my inspiration.

My apologies because all of the following pictures are taken with my phone.

I used the word art and diaper cake centerpiece as decoration on the cake and punch table.

My friend Lauren, who was also a hostess, made an incredible and professional looking fondant cake. Can you believe it was only her 2nd time to make and decorate a fondant cake?! I'm so impressed with her cake decorating abilities!

Another friend and hostess, Julie [different Julie than the baby shower honoree], made a cute 'bouquet' of felt flower hair-clips. Aren't they adorable?! I need to have her teach me how to make these. They can either clip straight into hair or on a headband.

I can't wait to see baby Finley sporting those adorable felt flower clips! Julie also made this cute pink and cream houndstooth banner of Finley's name.

I sure have some creative and talented friends! ;)

  1. This post is great. Can I get your friends name who did the cake? My sister is having a baby and I am hosting her shower in July.

  2. Everything is absolutely adorable, Sara!!! Of course a craft queen like yourself would attract like friends :o) Thanks for sharing the goodies here. It's always fun to see & hear what you've been up to! xoxo, vickey
