It's a Baby Shower!

This past weekend we held my cousin's baby shower. I just love how everything turned out! In my past life I must have been an event planner because I just love doing stuff like this! Check out some pics from the event.

Seeing these banners everywhere, I made this banner with the baby's name. It was so easy.

 Diaper Cake made by Melissa. So cute!
 Brownie Pops that I made. My sister asked if they were "the ones from Starbucks". Um, no, they are the ones from my kitchen, lol, but that made me feel really good about my brownie pop making skills...perhaps i should open a brownie pop shop? Also made the platter that they are on from a flower pot and plate. It's hard to see, but trust me, it's really cute!
 Decorative tree made by the dad-to-be and his mom that will also be used in the baby's room.
 Onesie banner that I made. I've seen these made using real onesie's but the mom-to-be already had a lot of baby clothes so I made this one from scrapbook paper and embellishments.
 This was the very first watermelon baby carriage that I've ever made. I watched three videos on the internet and read countless instructions to prep, lol. The hardest part is getting all of the watermelon out. I didn't think I'd ever be finished scooping out melon innards!
 This is how we felt trying to get everything setup before everyone got there. Great demo Melissa!
 Cake made by the dad-to-be. That's right ladies, I said the dad-to-be made this cake! How talented is he?!
 Present Motherload! Girlfriend racked up!!
 Fresh flowers from the farmers market. Aren't they beautiful?
