Baby Ellery's Shower

This past weekend we threw a baby shower for my good friend, Kara. She is expecting her first baby girl in March. There were several hostesses for this shower and we decided to go with a "sweet" theme.
On the "sweet" menu we had: chocolate cream cheese cupcakes, strawberry cupcakes, oreo balls, fruit, and pie. The color scheme we went with was cream, tan, and a touch of pink. Amber was kind enough to host it at her house and did a great job planning out the decor.

I was in charge of the banner for the mantle and the party favors. I was a little nervous about all of this, but thankfully my good friend Katie talked me through using her cricut machine. Those machines are incredible and can do so much. For the party favors I made vanilla covered pretzels and bought some super fun glitter sprinkles from hobby lobby to dip them in! I will post a how-to later this week on those, because they were so easy and would be great for any occasion. Overall, I thought the shower turned out great. She got a few duplicates of things, but hopefully she can get what she needs with some good credit!
We are so excited to meet sweet baby Ellery.
