One Sweet Girl: A tea party baby shower

For my sister in law's second child (another girl), I wanted to throw her an intimate baby shower. In order to make it extra special, I enlisted a few of her best friends and we got to work planning a girly tea party. We chose a color scheme of all shades of pink and wanted to include a candy buffet.  We broke out the fine china and linens and dressed the table for the occasion.  My favorite touch was the fuschia and white striped paper straws  from ).

The Hello Kitty Cake Pops were a huge hit! They were NOT easy to make, but here is a close up shot for you!

I made this mini fabric flower garland to add extra beauty to the decor as well. It was simple but very tedious and time consuming. Find the tutorial here.  

I was inspired by some cupcake pennants that I saw for sale on Etsy.  These are just scrapbook paper, double-sided tape and toothpicks.  I made the template myself. I will post the template as soon as I figure out how to convert the pdf into a webpage. For the macaron recipe, click here.  

I was inspired to make the tea bag-shaped place cards from Martha Stewart (Who else?). A friend handmade these napkin rings for the occasion and gave them to the mama-to-be as part of her gift.

Here's the food display...

Here is the best shot of the table.  Sorry you cannot get the full effect.
