Mary or Jane or Jill is Having A Little Lamb....

Aaah baby showers!! They seem to be in high demand these days. Especially in my life! 6 people, including myself, are pregnant right now. So, what better way to get me back into blog mode than a beautiful baby shower? My sister-in-law is hosting a shower for her friend Liza Lam. She asked me to come up with a theme and an invitation for her. After much thought, here is what we decided on:Very pretty colors of pink, coral and light blue make it super girly and frilly. I am really into the cherry blossoms right now, so I wanted to incorporate some into the invitation. This way she can use them to decorate with along with the Lambs.
Below are some inspirations I pulled from the Internet to help give Emily an idea of great simple ways to decorate around this theme.

Lamb Diaper Cake(Diaper Cakes Mall)
Blue and Pink Tissue Poms(Sweetpoms' Shop via ETSY)
Cherry Blossom Cupcake Wrappers(Nanalulu's Linen Closet)
Here is a beautiful shower with similar colors from a site called The Sweetest Occasion. I love the tea favors and 3 tiered floral centerpieces.
To go along with the girly aspect of this shower I would do a simple tea style buffet with yummy finger sandwiches, fruit tray and cheese board. Use tea pots to serve coffee, tea and water in pretty tea cups. I love the idea of using lettuce cups filled with something as simple as a store bought chicken salad. We have all seen the soup shooter appetizers that are so popular. Well, what about a crudite shooter? These are very cool, and can be found at Hip Hostess!
