"One, Two...Buckle Brynlee's Shoe"

My friend Natalie, asked me to plan a baby girl shower for her best friend. Natalie had a great idea to start this baby girl's shoe collection in addition to getting registry items. This was really original and turned out great!
I started with a an awesome invite design and printables from AndersRuff (as usual :)).
I made this tissue paper wreath for the front door...very easy.

We went with a dessert table for this shower too. Dessert tables ROCK! Who doesn't love desserts?

I chose orange, pink and brown since it was a fall shower. It was also super girly.

The desserts consisted of white wine cake, cream puffs, hand-dipped pretzels, mini chocolate donuts and mini strawberry and lemon cupcakes. The candy jars were filled with sixlets, whoppers and Hershey kisses.

My sister Shawn helped me make these faux roman shades to create a back drop.

I decoupaged this "B" and my niece, Donna tied the ribbons and added the flower.

I think these Hershey Kisses were my favorite part. Glued to the bottom of every single kiss were the party logos that matched the invite.

The beverage table turned out cute too! I must say that champagne lemonade is a must for all parties!!! You won't really mind all those shower games with this in your glass! :)

These sugar-rimmed glasses made the lemonade taste even better.

Yes, even water bottle labels!

The favor table contained boxes for the guests to fill with candy from the dessert table and a cookie as they left.

All of the favor boxes said, "Thank you for coming."

I made these mary jane cookies with fondant buttons the night before.

All of this could not have been set up with out the help of the official hostesses of this party, Natalie, Joan and Nikki.
A special thanks to my mom for helping me with last minute details and for watching the boys during the event; to Donna for letting me borrow your table cloths; to Shawn for working so very hard on those darn roman shades :) among other things; and to Donna Dean for helping me with pretty much everything including most of the baking and gluing while being an amazing nanny to my kiddos during the day.
I appreciate all of you helping me bring this to life.
Congratulations to Toni, the future Mommy of two!!!
