Pinwheel Baby Shower

I have always loved Pinwheels and how cute they look in party decorations. They add such a fun vibe to the table. And, it couldn`t be a more perfect theme for a shower where both expectant parents work for the Windmill industry!! Check how cute this party turned out:

Autumn Welcome Baby Shower

It was really nice to have a pregnant friend at the same I was pregnant. Justine and I were due less than 2 months apart and we got to support each other in many ways. As part of her Native American tradition, instead of a baby shower before the baby was born, we had a Welcome Baby Party. The party happened in October and acorns have a special place on Justine`s heart! Autumn seemed to be a perfect theme! I was lucky that my little guy was a great napper and I was able to craft many little details to celebrate the arrival of baby Isla.

The pumpkin cinnamon cake and lemon and chocolate cupcakes were able to please many different tastes. And the guests were able to take home some brigadeiro spread! The passion fruit mousse and almond chocolate bonbons were a success!

Greeting cards were consecutively numbered for the guests to leave a message to the Birthday Card Time Capsule!

We love this little family and it was a great honor to host this party!

Giraffe Baby Shower

Party decoration has become one of my passions! Each party a different theme, but with the same love and dedication.

Gabriel`s Giraffe Baby Shower was one of the first ones I got to decorate and since then I`ve been having lots of fun creating them! The party was planned for a very special friend and turned out super cute! We got lots of compliments and everybody had a great time.

The dessert table was filled with yummy treats like: covered pretzels, cake pops, three different kinds of brigadeiros, passion fruit and chocolate mousse and the most amazing pineapple naked cake I ever ate! There was also Brazilian cheese bread, popcorn and passion fruit juice!

The party favors were homemade sugar scrubs and they smelled divine!!
