Rain, Rain II

Today's baby shower was a success. Customized linens, favor bags, and cookies delighted guests, while the cupcake tower I crafted took center stage. To see more detailed pics from this event, check out the website.

A lot of ideas from the inspiration board made the final cut, but some tweaks were made. I worked with two different bakers to alter the color and design of the cookies and cupcakes they typically provide. I wanted a more sophisticated/preppy feel to the table than a traditional polka dot theme tends to have.

To achieve this, I incorporated the ribbon-topped linens and used round candies to represent dots. Choosing this course rather than simply applying polka dots everywhere tailors the table to a young mom-to-be's event rather than a little girl's party. Touches of gold mingled with shades of pink and white to create a full color scheme.

I hope it was worth the wait. Enjoy!

I think it turned out great :) The onesie cookies are so cute! I can't wait to hear more guest feedback and see future jobs.

How gorgeous! I love the ribbons on the tables. I think you're absolutely right about the dots.

Thanks for commenting on my blog! :)
