The last of the three cousin showers I helped with happened last weekend. It was the only girl shower that my mom, cousin and I got to plan. We went with a Sugar and Spice theme, which is wide open for interpretation, but I found some cute inspiration online.
For the gift table, I hung a dozen white tissue honeycomb balls and a sugar and spice, everything nice banner made using this kit from Rifle Paper Co. My cousin made the adorable diaper tricycle on the table.
We used a lot of pretty cut glass dishes on the food table – I made chicken salad on croissants, sugar donut muffins and pumpkin spice muffins. I also put out some sugared peach candies and rock candy sticks. My mom made sugared and spiced pecans as well as a fruit and angel food cake trifle. My cousin made chocolate-dipped oreos and Strawberry Lemonade Punch. She also made the white tutu that we used under the cake stand.
Above the drink table, I hung a set of the Martha Stewart Pink Accordion Lanterns. On the table, I added my gold sequined table runner that I use at my New Year’s Eve parties for a little extra sparkle. I also rimmed the glasses with light pink sugar sprinkles and set out some pink and white striped paper straws. The flowers came from mom’s yard.
Bradley nailed the design for our invitations (my inspiration came from here). I love the way they turned out.
