Showering Perry

The last couple of weekends we've celebrated the upcoming arrival of baby Perry!  Gordon and I hosted a small couples shower at our house with some fajitas, margaritas and yummy sweet treats. 
Instead of the doing the typical pink I tried to coral!  To be honest, it's nearly impossible to match corals so we had a variety of pink/orange/coral. 

We had some yummy sugar cookies, strawberry cakeballs and chocolate cupcakes.  I made everything besides the cookies!
The cakeballs are pretty easy to make.  I just make a bake a cake, break up the cooked cake (I use hand blender), mix container of frosting with crumbs and refrigerate over night.  The next day I make the balls using a melon baller and put them in the freezer for 2 hours.  After that all you have to do is  dip them in either a chocolate or candy melts (chocolate is easiest to use).  I used the white candy melts this time and used Wilton peach coloring to make them coral/pink. 

 I love how the cookies turned out!  Monogram. Gray. Chevron. Precious!!

I made the banner with my Cricut and the white vases are beer bottles that I spray painted white a couple of years ago.  I've used them for several different parties...I just change out the ribbon that's around them!

I love getting to use all my Beatriz Ball stuff!  The tray on the right is actually a cheese platter....I just placed some left over coral paper over the marble.

I was happy with how the flowers turned out.  Just some orange roses with slices of orange and blueberries.  Instead of the normal food labels I cut out these circles, put Perry's monogram on them and just wrote in what was on the menu! Then, I just tied them onto different things in the kitchen. 

I found the gray chevron ribbon at Michael's (as well as the mason jar). 

Nursing friends...old and new!
 Here are a few pictures from Alison's shower out in Katy.
They had yummy fruit, pasta salad, vegetables/dip, small sandwiches and pink cakeballs from Starbucks.  I loved the umbrella theme!

William and Parker
As you can see in the picture above William is in love with Parker.  He just laughs and smiles at her.  She is like a little momma and will be a fabulous big sister!  Hopefully she'll come over and help me with the little guy when we are neighbors.  :)
