O is for Ovah

...
The C is for Cupcake Baby Shower is ovah and so are my posts entitled "(blank) is for (blank)" for the time being. Golf claps.
...
I'm sure you ALL come here for the blog post titles but while you're here you may as well stick around for the party photos. If you're like me and want to see every party pixel, feel free to click on the images to enlarge them.



The fabulous
Jilly's Cupcake Bar party room provided the perfect backdrop for this baby shower and all of it's modern flashcardy goodness. Details were purposely kept clean and simple to match the vibe of the flashcards themselves.
...
I chose white balloons tied with clear fishing line to add some height and bring the eye up while still not being too "fussy." Yes, I just said "fussy." I'm a dork.
...
Signs were made and framed in white to highlight some of the various elements of the party: Cupcakes, Gifts, Favors, Ice Tea, Lemonade, etc.
...
Napkin rings of alphabet and colored beads strung on clear jewelry string spelled out baby-related words. Details anyone can do!

The bottles were filled with Lemonhead candy to weight them down and create a nice little stand for the flashcards.
...
Empty baby food jars were filled with crayons so the guests could doodle on the white butcher paper covered table if they were feeling a little artsy.
...
Colorful plates from the summery dishware section of Target made for cute chargers and got a personal touch with round labels. Charger + Name = Placecards. I can do letters AND math!
Fun word games were printed on coordinating paper and small square flashcards were passed around for guests to write words of wisdom for the mom-to-be.
...
These gourmet cupcake mixes were embellished with ribbon and 4" round stickers I created to match the shindig.

So those are the highlights. The deets. The dealios. Hope you enjoyed!
...
Special thanks to Debra at Jilly's for all of your help and for being so fun to work with on this. If you're in St. Louis and haven't been to Jilly's yet...WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? Go. Now.
