Baby Shower

First off, I just wanted to post a few pictures of the Hello Kitty cakes that I recently bought at the Sanrio Cafe in Pearlridge. The one my daughter is holding is their Strawberry flavor and the brown one is Banana. They were so YUMMY and almost too cute (for me) to eat...my daughter on the other hand, had no problem just digging HK's eye out and eating it!

Okay, now on to the "Baby Shower" portion of my post! :-) Today was the baby shower I have been planning for one of the mom's from my son's preschool class. I decided on a pink/white/brown, baby carriage/Hello Kitty themed shower...LOL! As you may know, from one of my earlier posts, I had already put together the little baby carriage favors using a pink, white, and brown color combo (hence the color/baby carriage theme). But I had originally planned on just bagging up some candy to put in them, that is, until my visit to the Sanrio Cafe!! Since the cafe is part of the store, I OF COURSE, had to take a walk through the store! LOL! As soon as I saw the cute little HK wind up toys I knew I had to get them for the shower so I decided to put them in the baby carriage favors instead of the candy...which created the Hello Kitty co-theme! hehe! I couldn't find any Hello Kitty baby things so I decided to add a HK doll to my baby carriage diaper cake.

Here's the baby carriage "diaper cake" that I put together. Actually, the only diapers you could see were the wheels...the rest lined the inside of the carriage. Included in this baby carriage were a wicker basket, 1 pack of 40 size 1 diapers, 2 blankets, 3 burp cloths, 1 bib set, 2 baby gowns, 1 book, 1 beenie/mittens/bootie set, 1 baby rattle, 1 baby wash/baby bubble bath set, 1 tube of diaper rash ointment, and 1 Hello Kitty doll.Here are the completed favors
And lastly, the card I put together for her gift
We had a great time eating breakfast, playing a few games, and just talking. I always have a great time with this bunch of ladies...I hope we are able to stay in touch even after our children graduate from preschool next month!!

Thanks for stopping by!
