My friend Jessi and I go ALL the way back! I met her and three other of our great friends in high school and ever since then we became inseparable. Together, we went through life's important events from first dates to marriages and now babies. Just thinking about it makes me emotional...
A while ago, Jessi and the girls, along with Sophie, surprised me with a hot air balloon themed baby shower. It was no surprise that I wanted to do something special for her when I found out that she was also pregnant with her first child.
Funny fact, we're 6 months apart from each other, Jessi being older, and now our baby (girls) will also be six months apart, mine being older! Talk about fate!
One day, Jessi told me that her big sister had purchased a penguin teddy bear for her baby. That gave me the idea of throwing a winter wonderland themed baby shower with the penguin as the main point of focus.
Jessi's sister took care of ordering the cake for the baby shower which, by the way, was the star of the show...second to Jessi of course! Haha! I mean, isn't the cake with the penguin on top SO CUTE?! It was designed and made by Delices Lafrenaie.
On the right side of the table, we had the salty food. Jessi's sister prepared the charcuterie board which was a great hit!
We put the deserts on the right side of the table.
Sandy, one of the guest, made these mini vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting. She truly has a talent for making desserts! It's not the first time that she made sweets for our parties. For Jessi's bridal shower, she made a BEAUTIFUL cake. All her sweets are incredibly tasty!
For plates and cutlery, I used the Silver Lining plastic plates and cutlery as they fit perfectly with the white/silver with a touch of baby pink themed colours. I didn't want to use paper plates and wanted something more classy and that can take all kinds of food.
This Winter Wonderland themed baby shower was truly a success thanks to all those who helped put this party together. Jessi's baby girl is truly loved. Now, I can't wait to see her little face in January!
