Camille's shower and stuff

Tonight I hosted a baby shower at my house for my good friend Camille. It was so fun to plan and put on. Since she is having a girl I went with a "chick" theme. I got the idea from another blog that I am sure many of you have heard of, The Hostess with the Mostest. Her party was incredible and immaculate and mine was simple and sweet. I actually coincidentally chose the same craft paper to mod podge all of the decor by total accident! How funny is that? Wait, am I making any sense right now? I'm tired, it's late. Sorry. Moving on. One of my favorite things about the whole spread was my fruit presentation. Instead of just a Mormon fruit salad I made fruit skewers and stuck them into a giant vase full of jello. Ha! I thought it was clever. Anywho, here are some pictures of the event before everyone showed up.

I have made a few diaper cakes in my day but I was especially proud of this one.



There's the fruit skewers in the jello. Even if you don't like it, you have to admit, it's pretty clever.

It was such a fun night and so many great girls came out to support her. I am really tired now but I feel so fulfilled in a way that is totally different from mothering. Isn't that weird? I guess I just like parties and I like when they are a success. On another note, I cannot believe how rad my husband is. He has taken sole responsibility of Jack for the last two days while I have worked to get everything ready and finished. Then after it was all over he even sat down next to me tonight and proceeded to tickle my arm for like an hour. What a stud. Now on to the very last note, can you even believe that I am due in 2 weeks?! Ahhh! It could really happen any day now and I would welcome it. I am sooooooooo stinkin' uncomfortable. Peace.

I love the skewers in the jell-o! The birdies on the little tree were so cute too. You have out-done yourself...especially doing it when you are due in no time. Looking at all that food makes me so very hungry. Wish I had a croissant sandwich right now.

By the way, I love your little gallery of art above the sofa.

That all is so cute! I love the jello skewers! Way cute idea. I am hosting a shower at the end of the month, but not in charge of the food, which I am relieved, but I also think it is so fun to make things all fun with the food. Good work, like always! Also, good luck with the next two weeks!

Kat, you make me feel inferior! Not only do have a kid and one on the way but you actually do nice things for people! The shower looks cute! Tell Mikey to keep being a good husband- we like those!

Congrats on almost being to the end of the pregnancy! Can't wait to see pictures! Hopefully we'll catch the baby bug soon :)

You did a great job! I love the fruit on a stick, it looks so good!

That diaper cake is AWESOME!!!! i've never seen one so stylin' with all the colors.....(just usually the colors that come on the diapers). I'm super impressed. See it's because of people like you that I NEVER will host a shower because you do too cute of a job, you make the rest of us look bad.
The skewers/JELLO were AWESOME. Even if they weren't eatible they LOOK soooo cool. You're so awesome. What a project to take on 2 weeks before.
You never posted pics of the shower they threw for you!!!!
Did anyone help host this shower with you?!?! That was soooo much work (and money!). YOu're the woman.
