“Apple of my Eye” Baby Shower

An Ikea Frame with a Custom “Apple of her Eye” Sign

Last year my dear friend Sara was pregnant with her 4th child and her 1st boy. She has 3 adorably sweet little girls so I knew that she needed a bit more blue added to her baby wardrobe. Being a mom of two boys, I felt it was my duty to shower her with love and a bit of advice when it comes to on snips, snails and puppy dog tails.
I have to admit that this party was almost a year ago so I really apologize for the delay. With Autumn around the corner, I felt it was the perfect time to share an apple-themed soiree and I hope you agree.

Centerpiece: I love this large black tray centered on my dinning room table.  It was a gift from my Mother-in-law and I think is the perfect contrast to all the cream and green.  The delectable treat displayed on a small cake tier is Baked bree with melted caramel, dried apples and cranberries- Sinful and AMAZING!!!

Favors:  I love these favors from JP Creatables.  She is a cookie designer here in Norther VA and she is AMAZING.  The basket, the wooden apples and the cloth napkin came with the cookies.  It was her way to "display" them for me.  They were worth every penny and I still have the basket and apples for some fall Decor around the hosue.

    Love this! Where did you find the “Mother’s of Little Boys” plaque?

    • Hi Adrienne-
      That was actually a gift from my Mother-in-law. I will ask her and see where she found that plaque.
