Riley's Baby Shower

I have been meaning to post pics of the baby shower we threw for my friend, Niki and her sweet daughter-to-be Riley, but had not gotten to it. So today while I was cruising blogland I saw that Kelly was hosting a baby shower linky deal. No time like the present to show some pics.
The buffet! Another angle of the table.Sorry for the blurry pic but wanted to show how we folded the napkins like diapers.

We used her baby shoes, pictures, mementos, and toys to give the shower a vintage feel.


Kim, Niki's sister-in-law, made these delicious Hawaiian sandwiches and pasta salad.
I have a collection of vintage silver baby cups that I had used at my sister's baby shower so I used them again...love that I used them twice!
We put flags in the cheese to tell what kind it was and you can see her invitation in a frame behind the cheese pedestal.

Pasta salad...yummy!


More of our fruit and cheese display.


A tray of little candies...Niki's son, Hudson, loved this most of all!

The cupcakes...not a great picture but the best I have.



The cookies I made for her shower. I was inspired by http://bakeat350.blogspot.com/. She is amazing.


I stole this idea from a blog but can't remember where. SORRY! We set out diapers and encouraged everyone to write a funny message for them to enjoy while diapering Riley. I liked it better than a game and it also will prove useful.
A little sign that reserved her seat for opening gifts.





This sign hung on my mantle and all the presents were placed below.



Here is the guest of honor opening her goodies.

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running
off the screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let
you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.
Many thanks

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave
it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her
ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
off topic but I had to tell someone!
