baby shower for Kasey

Last Saturday, my sister and I threw a baby shower for our stepsister, Kasey.  Her and her husband are expecting a baby girl this August.  Kristin and I kind of have our system down now after she threw me such a wonderful shower back in March.  Then we gave a bridal shower for Aubrey, and a very similar baby shower for my friend, Amy, just a few weeks later.  Such fun and exciting times!

We pretty much keep our menu the same because it's simple.... and at each shower people seem to enjoy the food.  At this shower, we had chicken salad sandwiches on croissants, cream cheese roll-ups with salsa,  fresh fruit, cheese and cracker tray, southwestern corn dip with corn chips, and ranch party dip with potato chips.


We used The Sister Studio for the invitations, stationary, cupcake toppers, place cards, and this adorable sign.  I highly recommend this shop!  They are very easy to work with, take custom orders, send proofs to make sure they have done exactly what you're wanting, and have a quick turnaround.   


I told Kristin that although our food is pretty self-explanatory...these place cards are just so cute and really add a lot to the decor and finished look of the table.


This 'dessert' table really turned out SO cute and I hate that this picture does not do it justice.  I ran short on time and so wasn't able to take better pictures without the kitchen light on.  These will do I suppose. ;)


Again- toppers from The Sister Studio.




For the clothesline...I made 2 sets of bibs and burp cloths.  


I also added the pink lace to the neckline of a onesie, and made the cute little circle skirt using this pattern (I highly recommend the circle skirt...it took me about 30 minutes including cutting out the pattern and sewing).



We got these personalized wooden forks and chevron cups from When I Was Your Age.  This shop was also very easy to work with and had a quick turnaround.  This shop has the cutest stuff from cups to favor boxes, and food trays.  You'll want to use it all, but it can get very pricey!


These mini chocolate labels were also from When I Was Your Age.   They sent me a digital file and instead of printing on regular computer paper, cutting out, then using tape to attach...I just printed on sticker paper, cut, and attached.  So easy and so cute!



And for the party favors...(since they didn't already have these in their shop), I told them what I wanted.... and The Sister Studio designed these tags for me.  I also printed these on sticker paper then cut with my paper cutter and attached.


And now I'm excited and ready to start planning the shower for my sister (as soon as we find out if it's a boy or girl)!!  ;)
