Sip & See: Sweet Baby Girl

As most of you know, there are not a lot of things that I do that involve PINK. In fact, my mind seems to only function in blue and green.

Really. I do mean that. 

But now that one of my best friends has a sweet baby girl…

{isn’t she fabulous?!?!}

I’ve had the chance to cross over in to pink-land!

Holy choices batman.

I don’t know how you girl momma’s do it? Not break your bank account that is. The choices you have when it comes to “girly” things are ENDLESS.

This past weekend I hosted a Sip & See Baby Shower for Miss Baylor Lynn. I was a little out of my element trying to decorate for a girl.

Ok ok, A LOT out of my element.

But, I had the best time bringing out my pink decor skills.

I think I pulled it off {for being so stuck in boy land over here}.

The guest of honor was cuter than ever in her OVERLY adorable bow.

Just for the record, if I ever had a girl, she would be decked out in bows like this everyday. Maybe even bigger.

Can I just say one thing real quick…who hates Kelly for looking so good only 3.5 weeks post baby? I know, me too.

Not the I-think-you-suck-and-I-want-to-punch-you-in-the-face kind of hate. More like I-am-so-jealous-of-your-cuteness kind of hate.

My wonderful friend Jen from The PolkaDot Posie created a printable package for me that included: cupcake toppers, 8×10 signs, and a banner.

She can customize pretty much any printable to go with your theme. Hit her up the next time you are looking for cute party decor!

I wrapped a few empty boxes in wrapping paper to match the theme and used that as my cupcake stand. I’ve been tempted {on numerous occasions} to buy a cupcake stand, but I kind of like the wrapping paper idea because it helps bring some more color to the party.

This cake? I did not make it. A local bakery did and it was super yummy!

A few guests {aka grandparents} who were loving on Baylor.

Kelly had a great idea for the favors. We gave out these adorable birth announcements on a picture stand…

…and homemade pretzels dipped in chocolate that said ‘baby”.

Jen also made this ADORABLE subway art sign that read “Welcoming Baylor Lynn Webb to a world full of BOYS”. In case you didn’t know, Baylor has two older brothers. :)

I found the pink metal flower at Hobby Lobby for $6 and I couldn’t resist it so I bought and we used it to display pictures!

If you ever want to customize a picture display then buy clear stickers that you can stick on the corner of each picture. We used “B” for her initial and I like how it added the personalized touch.

The food at this party…to die for! Before you go thinking I am going to to tell you that I was in charge of the food…let me make it clear…I was NOT. You all know that cooking is not my specialty.

Kelly’s mom {below} was in charge of food and she could not have done a better job. Some of it she had catered, some she cooked and overall…she picked the perfect menu!

Let me tell you…I could have eaten 800 more of these. I would share the recipe, but it is one of the items that we had catered. They were amaze-balls!

I didn’t get a full shot of the food table, but again, I used good ole wrapping paper to help spruce it up.

I bought the cheap throw away table cloth {from Party City} and then layered wrapping paper for a center runner. I used teal polka dot on the bottom and a funky pink {smaller strip} on top of that.

Or did your mind completely disregard the wrapping paper table runner because you were so in love with the chevron picture frame? Me too! Another Hobby Lobby find {for half off}. I justified buying it to use at the Sip & See because it’s the perfect colors for SJ’s room.

All the pictures you have seen of Baylor in this post and the ones we displayed were taken by me. I am no professional, but I am finally trying to figure out my camera. Ha! With a subject like this…

…it’s hard to go wrong!

Family photo shoot…

I am pretty sure this should go on their Christmas card with a saying like, “Our life just got crazy…first Christmas as a family of five!”
