My Baby Sprinkle

I'm finally getting around to sharing some pics from my amazing baby Sprinkle given by mom with a lot of help from my three besties (and Bestie mom!), and my SIL!

It was truly an amazing day to celebrate the upcoming arrival of our own little cupcake!  While I have loved every second of being a mama to a rough and tumble little boy, it's so fun to get to indulge in the pink thing now, too.  I resisted the pink at first...I've been immersed in the world of blue, green and orange for over two years now after all, but never fear, my daughter now has a fully stocked girly wardrobe and a good quantity of the requisite girly headbands and bow socks.  

I was so overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and excitement from everyone that came, thank you all so much, I love you all dearly and am so excited for baby P to meet you all!! :)

On to pics...

Because the theme of this pregnancy has been craving sugar (still surprised I passed that glucose test!) we went with a "sprinkle" theme.  Totally reaching, I know!!

The invites Becca found for me served as our color palette inspiration.

The gorgeous table!

Most amazing diaper cake ever from Bree.  It's even stuffed with color-coordinating Honest diapers!! Ugh, I love you, B, for indulging my paranoia and ordering my special diapers!!! 

 I left this in tact, until it made Oliver ask for "cake, peas" every 5 minutes.  

One hazard of a cupcake-themed diaper cake :  It was too realistic looking for a 2-year old!

Sprinkles everywhere.  Becca special ordered them in bulk online in my special colors.  That's a true friend, right there!!

Dessert Table

What would a party of mine be without these?!

The favors were homemade sprinkled sugar cookies personalized with "Penelope Mae", "Baby Girl" and "It's A Girl"

I'm always on the fence about what to give as favors (should you even bother? Do people even care?)  But I've learned it's always safe to go the edible/drinkable route...let me tell you, these went fast!!!

My amazing sister in law created this perfect ruffled cake with a chocolate-oreo filling! 

(This cake alone make me postpone my previously mentioned glucose tests a whole week)

Strawberry cupcakes!

Layered Lemon Cheesecake baby food jars!

It was SO hot, the white sangria disappeared before I could sneak a sip!  I hear it was delicious!

LOVED the centerpieces!!!!! Vases filled with sprinkles? Favorite.

Sprinkled candles on crown candle holders?  Becca, you're incredible.  I can't wait to re-purpose these!

The girls  created headbands for Penelope at the Bowtique table, and Becca had me choose a favorite to give a prize to...such a fun, interactive element, and I loved seeing everyone's different styles come out!   Baby P was left with tons of super cute bows I cannot wait for her to wear!   

The "bowtique" was stocked with bows, flowers, elastics and all sorts of accents like feathers and buttons!

Bree's mom, Diane, painted this amazing picture for the nursery that doubled as a guestbook.  All the girls stamped their thumbprints and signed their names.  How talented is she?!?!  I love looking at the cupcake everyday that's now hanging up...and so does O.  Whenever he's in the "baby room" now he says "I love you, cake! Mmm yummy" (see? told you..the kid loves cake!)

I'm not big on shower games, but I realize sometimes they can be, Becca came up with one I'd never seen before where guests had to identify the body parts from various ultrasounds I've had at different stages.  I think it was Brooke Tormey and Kindy who got all of these right...and seriously some were super tricky!!  

Sprinkled balloons from Bree!

Jess and Becca's banner!

I loved every second of this party!! 

Thank you a million times to my amazing friends who put so much work into it!!  I can't wait to throw you all incredible showers and maybe give me a reason to?!?!?
