Angelika's Baby Shower....

My soon to be niece Olivia's delivery date is fast approaching which means a baby shower is in order!

Her nursery will be shabby chic, so I decided to carry that theme over into the shower. It will be a shabby chic garden tea party of sorts... Pinks, Greens, and Yellows will be the parties pallet. Bunnies, Flowers and Teapots will be a part of the decor.
I put an inspiration board together for the look and feel I want for my sisters baby shower...

Once the shower occurs I will post pictures of the outcome. I have a crafting day schedule and have called upon some of our girlfriends to come help me paint and glue and tape. I'll post pictures of the projects and simple instructions on how I got the looks!
As for the menu, I want to keep it simple but girlie!

For drinks, Honeydew & Mint Agua Fresca

and Old Fashioned Pink Lemonade will be super refreshing and easy to make (We received a really awesome juicer as one of our wedding gifts!)
Snacks will be simple tea sandwiches , fresh fruit and cheese.

Dessert will hopefully be a show stopper! I really want the cakes (yes plural) to be amazing! I had my eye on 3 designs, sent them in to several bakeries but the price range of $200-$600 for a baby shower cake was just to I am going to try my hand at making them. Here are the 3 that I feel in love with.
I really liked how cute and simple this first one is.

I really fell in love with this pink cake with the cameo on it! It SCREAMS shabby chic

The third one completly knocked my socks off! Its the perfect cake for a garden party!

My goals for recreating one of these cakes is a bit lofty, but we shall see. I am 85% sure I can pull off one of the looks of these cakes.


  1. The first cake is effing amazing! We can TOTALLY make it happen!

  2. I cant wait to see how this turns out! I hope you post pictures of it once it is all complete!
