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! 🙂
