A Very Special Baby Shower

Last weekend I had the pleasure of hosting, alongside my mother, a baby shower for my sister.  She is due to have a baby girl mid April and we are so excited.  We decided to throw the shower at the new creamery downtown Lancaster, Carmen and David's Creamery and it was just beautiful!  David, one of the owners was so accommodating and so nice to work with.  They make all their own ice cream on site and it was just so yummy!

Below are a collection of pictures my talented sister (in law), Amanda Kirkham took while at the shower.

Our colors for the shower were mainly Pinks and Yellows with splashes of green and orange.  My sister's favorite color is yellow and her favorite flower is Gerber daisies.  The flowers were provided to us by the most fabulous and my most dear friend, Kelly Steadman.  Thanks so much Kelly, they were perfect!
Above is one of the invitations that I made for the shower.  A bouquet presented to my sister when she arrived.  A menu card listing all the delicious options for the party and pacifier necklaces I made to give out to each guest.  I made the necklaces for the "Forbidden Word" game.  Any guest who was caught saying names such as baby, cute, etc. got their necklaces taken.  Whoever had the most at the end of the shower was the winner.
The diaper cake I made.  I have so much fun doing these.  We also incorporated this into an easy game...Guess how many diapers in the cake?
Favors for the guests were these cute lolli pops we ordered at Oriental Trading Company.  We had stickers made with a cute message and I added all the yellow bows.

Since the pacifier necklaces that were made from the lifesavers and cotton candy jelly bellys were not edible I decided to put some extra out to take home in pink goody bags.

We had Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches, Chinese Pot Stickers w/sauce, hot crab dip, pasta salad and assorted finger wraps!  So good.
She got soooo many gifts!  This is going to be one spoiled little girl :)

Each guest table centerpiece had a glass bowl with a floatingg rubber ducky and two gerber dasies.  The favor table had two stacked bowls you see above.
SURPRISE!

We had Vanilla, Teaberry and Lemon flavored ice cream.  It was so good!
One of the last games we played was "Guess the Girth."
