From the other end of party planning

One Neapolitan Girlie baby shower:

Miss Gracee graciously sharing her birthday with our party.



The cute prego girlie mammas

(there was also a cute prego mamma of a will-be-boy there...to be fair...as well as at least 2 not -yet showing prego mammas of unknowns... but I digress)


See, once it's all over I think it was fun again. And that's why I will always do it again, over and over. Hoorah for being anxiously engaged in good party-planning causes!
ETA:
I do not make my own fondant. (Although I'd be willing to try sometime....maybe) I buy the block of white Wilton fondant, then knead in coloring and usually some flavoring. Fondant is only intimidating if you feel like you have to make a seamless, perfect cake the first time. Since I'm fine with my cake having oodles of seams, and looking very much homemade, I just follow the directions on the package and play with it a bit. Next time I make one I'll document it better and share the whole process.

You totally inspire me to make an extravagant cake for absolutely no reason.
If I decide to try it, you will be the first to know.

you did an amazing job! Thanks for for throwing the shower...you are so thoughtful.

Also, someone left me a little something on my doorstep last night...you wouldn't have anything to do with that would you?

I love all those decorations! The color scheme all the fun items you used made it so cute! Thanks for the info on the fondant. I would LOVE to see the tutorial on how you put it all together the next time you make one.

Looks like you're going to be tutoring all of us on fondant sensations. Looks like a great party! It makes me want to throw one!

The party looks absolutely beautiful! I'm so sad I missed it! Where was it held? I don't recognize that deck at all. So much seems to be changing back that way. Sometimes I'm lonely for my PA life.

What an amazing cake. I am dieing for an excuse to throw a party and try something like that. The shower looked way fun. Tell Linds "Hi!" for me. I can't wait to hear their little pink bundle of joy is here.
