Twinkle Twinkle Little Star... ( A baby shower )

My sis-in-law is having a baby BOY ( seriously guys, we will be in desperate need of some girls in my families household soon enough! HA my parents will have 3 grandSONS! But I'm so happy it's a boy so Ry and Luke can have a partner in crime semi-close in age! )
Even though she is having a boy I LOVE how gender neutral you can make this shower- it could go either way!

My mom is queen of party throwing. She sees an idea and seriously makes it come to life.
I love being with her for stuff like this because I literally take notes on everything she does! Hoping one day I can be just like her and carry on her talent! HA

My younger sister, Lauren, did all the calligraphy and signs.
I told her she needs to open up a business - SO CUTE!

I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking! This was so fun to put together!

My favorite ^^ These cupcakes tasted just like my wedding! My mamma and her baking skills!!
If you look closely we found little tiny "gold star sprinkles" for the top of the cupcakes! ^^
( We used a star stencil to trace and cut stars out of gold glitter paper for the cupcake toppers and then hot glued "twinkle twinkle" to each star and toothpick )

Again, made by my mamma! ^^
The shower was from 7-9 PM which was a perfect time for a few appetizers and dessert, not feeling like you had to have a full course meal.

One of the highlights were these little pudding parfaits! ^^
We just used white chocolate pudding, graham cracker crumbs and a little cool whip for the top.
Top it all off with 1/4 of a vanilla wafer! SO easy and so yummy!

She's putting on the finishing touches ^^ :)

One of my favorite parts of the whole thing was making a diaper cake! ^^
We had never made one before and I loved it! Plus, it's a great way for the 'mamma to be' to get some extra diapers! Let's be honest, we can all use some extra diapers!!
We followed THIS tutorial to get the basic diaper cake idea and then of course put our own twist on it.

Target does it again! ^^ $4 banner! Rather than pay for a personalized banner on ETSY we found the banner at target and put our own letter stickers on!

The woman of the hour and 'Mamma to be' ^^ and seriously, she does not look like she is going to have a baby in 4 weeks!

She is due the middle of August but I will anxiously be counting down the days until September when I head back to Utah and hold this sweet newborn! Ahh I can't wait to spoil this babe!
