Today I hosted a baby shower for my friend, Whitney. Prepare yourself for a bit of a pink explosion… in case you can’t tell, she’s expecting a little girl!
Welcome, Madeleine Clare!
So let’s just discuss how I have obviously not made just a whole lot of cakes, haha! I definitely need to work on my icing skills. The bottom layer was strawberry and the top was traditional white.
I made cake pops and put them in a little gift bag to display them.
And I made pink lemonade cookies. Friends brought fruit trays, veggie trays, and dips, but I totally failed to get a picture of all of that, haha! Many of these pictures were taken before the shower actually began because I got pretty busy once people arrived.
Heather, Melissa, Lilly, Mandy and Courtney (not pictured) showed up early to help me prep all the drinks!
Pink lemonade in mason jars, chilled water, and watermelon flavored water.
I used cupcake liners as “lids” and poked the straws through them. And then we filled a bunch of extra mason jars with pink lemonade and stuck them in a bucket of ice. Oh! And I premade tons of ice out of pink lemonade so the drinks wouldn’t get watery as the ice melted. I just loved how cute these were!
I set up a little table so the shower guests could write a note for both new baby Madeleine and her big sister, Cadence.

Friends! I’m pretty sure I have a photo of me with Heather and Mandy from nearly every baby and wedding shower we’ve attended over the past two years, haha! I just love it!
Me with Whitney! Congratulations, friend! I’m excited to meet little Madeleine next month!
