My original plan was to have the party outside and have my yard all decorated in a garden party sort of theme. Part of the plan was to have a camp fire later in the evening and I prepared a s'mores bar-complete with Reeses Peanut Butter cups, sea salt, pretzels and of course, the usual toppings.
Well, the weather around here is totally unpredictable and it ended up raining so, we had the party inside. It was still really fun and now I have a s'mores bar set up for another time, when I'll randomly invite some friends over, if it's actually not raining!
To decorate for the shower, I used spray painted and stenciled jars, filled with flowers from my garden and also sunflowers from the store.
Is it just me or are sunflowers the most wonderful flower ever? I just can't get enough of them!
The banner was sewn with the same fabric that my sister is going to be using to decorate her new baby's room. Sewing a pennant banner is super easy. Basically, you just cut out triangles of fabric with pinking sheers, sew the triangles onto a long, narrow strip of fabric and then trim any loose edges. YOU could totally do it.chicken wire frame held this bible verse that I love and a sweet picture of her baby-to-be.
This carrot cake recipe is a new favorite of mine so, I think I'll share it later this week. Really, it's just too good to not share. The cake is moist and full of yummy things like walnuts, fresh carrot and pineapple.
The frosting was a homemade cream cheese frosting and I loved how easy it was to make and also, how easy it was to pipe the frosting on.
I hope you had a great weekend as well!
