A Baby Bonanza!

This past weekend my friend Vicki and I threw a baby shower for our good friend Bonnie. I found these cute invites at Hallmark................

And they went with the zoo animal cupcake decoration kit Vicki found at Target!

We now had a theme ............... a circus party! We decided to have food that you would find at a circus: pizza, corn dogs, popcorn, peanuts, and candy.  I set up a favor table with jars and dishes of candy and cookies for the guests to fill red and white popcorn bags with as favors.

For decorations Vicki made an adorable diaper cake:

And I hung up my bunting banner in the dining room with the desserts (the cupcakes and an ice cream sundae bar..YUMMY!)

I also made a "baby shower" banner following the tutorial on My Blessed Life.  

I plan to replace some of the letters and add a few more to make it into a "happy birthday" banner

And one of the other gifts I gave besides the baby quilt was to prevent something like this from happening.

Sandy, my parents' dog found an abandoned pacifier at the race track!

 I found some pretty ribbon at Joann's sewed it to a clip at one end and used a snap to attach it to a pacifier at the other end. 

So there's the culmination of the last couple of weeks of my baby crafting extravaganza :o)
