How as your weekend?? Mine was awesome. (Of course, I can’t believe it’s already Monday and want to re-do the whole thing again.) I thought I would go a little bit off-course today and not talk about the shop or my number one man Oliver (sorry, hubs…:) because although those are uber important in my life, they aren’t ALL of my life.
There are some very important people in my life that I don’t get to chat about often…my three besties. The four of us have been attached at the hip since high school…some of us even longer (one my friends and I go waaaaay back to the first grade…that’s hard core people). I consider these ladies more than friends…they are my sisters. We’ve all taken different paths but always make an effort to be in each others lives. In a few short weeks, it will be the first time since we graduated high school that we’ll all be within an hour of each other (!!!! Erica is coming home !!!!). Anyway, I digress…I could talk about our friendship for days. :)
One of my besties, Whitney is having her first little girl!! We couldn’t be more thrilled (me especially because Oliver needs a girlfriend. STAT.). So this past weekend, we threw her a baby shower…my other bestie Lauren and I have been preparing for weeks…you could say that maybe we over prepared but we are THAT excited. (Plus, anyone who knows me knows that pink and I go together like coffee and creamer. We’re just supposed to be together.) We had it at a party room at one of Whitney’s relatives condo building downtown. It was an amazing afternoon…
We didn’t actually play games (sorry, folks we aren’t baby game people) but we did put this fun little collage together. We gathered baby pictures of all the relatives…Mom, Dad, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents and guests had to match the photo with person. It was fun to listen to people try and guess who was who…
If you follow me on Instagram (@whitenest), then you may have seen a glimpse at me making these bad boys. Cake pops are my new favorite thing to make for parties. Everyone loves them. without. fail. They are a little time consuming but completely and totally worth it. Seriously. (And super bonus is that they make a ton and I have 20 extra sitting in my freezer as I type this.)
Holy frosting. Holy happiness.
Milkglass vases + painted animals + flowers = our centerpieces
Frosted animal cookie favors…mmmm…I ended up making the entire favor including the box because my perfectionist self couldn’t find a box that I liked. :)
And my besties…Whitney and Lauren (our fourth friend is literally traveling the world but we can’t wait when she comes home!!). This party wouldn’t have happened without Lauren since she was my partner-in-crime. And Whitney! We can’t wait meet her!!
There were so many things that we DIY’d that I thought I would pop back later this week and share how we created everything, sources and even include some free printables! See you soon! xoxo, Meg
