Christina’s Cute as a Button Baby Shower

FILED IN: Personal

This Summer there has been SO many showers…both Bridal and Baby. They have all been so cute I can’t resist posting photos of them on my blog. Since our family is anticipating the arrival of our new niece, and I just posted Christina’s Maternity Shoot last week, I thought I would post her Baby Shower this week. I was very happy to throw this shower for Christina along with her Sister-in-law Kristin. For her last 2 babies I wasn’t living in CO yet, so I was very excited to have the opportunity to host this time. Kristin and I had so much fun planning this! Once we came up with the “Cute as a Button” and sewing theme we went a little button crazy!

We had guests guess how many buttons in the jar as well as write their wishes for Baby Girl Poppleton on a fabric square.  I am then going to sew these into a quilt for her to keep!

Guests had fun guessing which baby photo belonged to each person in attendance.

“She will be SEW cute!”
Since the shower was at 2:00, we had an assortment of button themed snacks and sweets.  The spread included Chocolate Button Pops, Mini PB& Js, Button Cookies, Summer Pasta Salad, Baked Brie, Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries, Pink Lemonade Cake, Assorted Tarts and Pastries and Red Velvet Cupcakes.

I’m no Martha Steward so I was proud my Pink Lemonade cake actually turned out.  It was pretty tasty too!
