Alex's baby shower

Abby over at Paper&Cake is amazing...I love all their parties! I threw Alex a baby shower using their "Under the Sea" collection and got so many compliments!

I kept it pretty simple since the shower was going to be fairly small. Food: pasta salad, hummus & pita bread, veggies and dip, and cupcakes. I filled the favor baskets with peppermint patties, lip balm, and tealight candles. We played one game - I put about 15 assorted baby related items on a tray, let the ladies examine it for about a minute, then they had to write down all the items they remembered after I took the tray away. We also talked the afternoon away, as a group of women who have known each other for years and years are able to do!
