While everyone else is seeing green with St. Patrick's Day ideas...
I'm seeing Pink, Brown and White!
Havin' a baby?...I will travel! Yes, my neice is having a baby girl and lives two hours away. So I decided to have a "Dessert Buffet" baby shower in her town at the home of my sister. These are the invitations I made~
While they look simple enough- they were NOT! I have a cricut machine and had another idea in mind. I started with the first idea - which was a bad idea and three days later and a pile of scrap book paper I decided to start over. So another trip to Joann's for more paper. Then another trip to Joann's for more envelopes and cardstock. They were finally ready to be mailed.
Yes, I punched three circles and glue them on each invitation!
I guess what I'm trying to say is...if you see some cute invitations - BUY THEM! If they are expensive - BUY THEM! If they aren't in your theme - BUY THEM and change your theme!
Now I didn't have near as much trouble with the baby cookies. I made this special cookie for the Guest of Honor - Evie
I confess, this plan didn't go accordingly. I wanted to use fishing line to attach the raindrops to the umbrella and let's just say it went much easier in my head. Strike One!
I had better luck with these~
The little dipped marshmallows were so simple to make~
But tasted sooo bad, I don't know why. After making four, I gave one to my daughter who LOVES anything sweet, and she said they were terrible.
Another fabulous idea were pink mini donuts~
Which I drizzled with frosting & sanding sugar~
After making what felt like hundreds, not enough of them turned out and I thought they looked piddly on the platter, so I decided to make new ones! Strike Three!
No way was I out...I don't give up easily! Maybe I'll hit a home run in the second inning!
Don't Take Me Out of the Ball Game!
