Yesterday I helped host a baby shower for my friend Katie. You would think based on what is about to appear in this post that I am one of those super creative and crafty people. You would be totally wrong, but for some reason this baby shower brought out my creative side.
I was in charge of making cupcakes for the shower, so I decided to make a dozen vanilla cupcakes and dozen chocolate cupcakes decorated differently, but both in keeping with something about the baby.
Katie is having a little girl, so I decorated the vanilla cupcakes with pink buttercream icing and little pacifiers that I assembled out of lifesavers and jelly bellys.
The baby’s nursery has a bumblebee theme, so I decided to decorate the chocolate cupcakes as bumblebees. I was going to make antenna out of string black licorice, but I couldn’t find any and didn’t see anything else that would work either. So my poor bees had to go antennaless.
One of the activities we had planed for the baby shower was to decorate onesies for the baby to wear. They all came out super cute, but I’ll only bore you with pictures of the ones I made. The first one I made completely using stencils, so although it’s cute I don’t feel that much pride in it.
The second one however, I am super pleased with because I drew it all by hand. As someone who can barely draw stick figures, I am super excited about how well it came out. It’s Baby’s First HonFest onesie. If you’re familiar with Baltimore, especially my neighborhood Hampden, you’ll totally get this onesie. If you don’t know anything about Baltimore and Hons, this will make no sense to you but I don’t feel like explaining it so sorry you’ll just remain confused. Or Google it.
