Baby Shower!

Yesterday I hosted a baby shower for a friend from church. Julie is expecting her little miracle baby boy in December!

I got the cake from my favorite cake shop. They did the cake for my wedding and one of my baby showers. I called way ahead of time and gave really specific instructions. Julie's colors are silvery blue, silver, black and white. So that is how the cake was supposed to look. Well, they got most of the look right, but totally messed up the colors!



All I can say as at least it wasn't pink! And, they did do a few things to try to fix it like switch out the monogram to a silver one, add a silver bow and add some silver dots. Oh, and the all-important filling was correct! Chocolate on chocolate - Julie and my personal fave!
A girl that goes to church with us, Robin, makes the gorgeous cookies from scratch! Aren't they beautiful? And they taste as good as they look!

Another friend from church made this adorable diaper cake!

The shower was so much fun! Unfortunately, as people were arriving we had a sudden downpour of rain and several people got soaked! We went from sunny 70-75 degree temps last week to a possibility of snow tonight and tomorrow! Crazy Arkansas weather!

The shower was just gorgeous--I am so honored by everyone's hard work and generosity. I had the best time--it was a very special day.

The cake was so pretty and yummy--I actually just finished eating a piece :)

Thank you so much for hosting it and for putting so much time into planning it. I really really appreciate it more than I could ever say.

Such a cute baby shower! The cake did turn out adorable but it's so frustrating when they don't follow what you want!
