Decorate: Little Lamb Shower Part 2

Part 2: The edibles!
by Designing Mom Erika


My biggest tip for planning a little party is to shop your own home (and your friends' homes) first, before buying a single thing! Luckily Carrie's nursery d├ęcor happens to be my own favorite color, green, so I had lots of "decorations" around already. I kept everything for the party in one cabinet to make it easier to keep track of progress (and it eliminated over-buying).


A little trick I learned from my parents, the ultimate hosts, is to set the table the day before.
It only looks "fancy."
With the exception of the amazing lemon cupcakes, made at home, and the delicious (and beautiful) macarons from Paulette, most of the items on the dessert table came from the Dollar Store!


There is lots more info, including a downloadable PDF of the cupcake toppers, on my blog. Click on the "party planning" link in the far right column of the blog in the tags section (or click here).
