I can’t believe I haven’t shared this Cloud themed “Sprinkled with Love” baby shower with y’all yet! This ‘sprinkle’ was thrown in honor of one of my dearest friends in Denver (miss you Jenny!), and was so much fun to put together.
Since the shower was on a Sunday afternoon, we served treats and appetizers in all shades of white and cream and blue, accompanied by an ever-glorious Mimosa Bar.
There were color blocked marshmallows, crème brulee shot glasses, milk shooters with old fashioned mini donuts, shark gummies (labeled ‘shark-nado raindrops’- I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work in the greatest B Movie of all time), blue salt water taffy, and cookies and cream and chocolate squares. And, of course, an extra yummy cake from Whole Foods (they have a whole repertoire that I love and miss!).
The giant fluffy cloud hanging above the treat table (made following this tutorial using balloons, paper mache, spray adhesive and batting) was the quite the star of the show. Little plastic raindrops were the perfect finishing touch (the cloud-and-raindrops became a mobile above the reading nook in the Smooches’ Denver bedroom– they were absolutely smitten and it was fun to put that labor of love to good use).
There were also linen clouds with fabric raindrops dotting the décor…
…and a clear umbrella with fabric raindrops!
Of course, at a Sprinkled with Love shower, you can never have enough clouds, so there was cloud wrapping paper, there were cloud cake toppers, clouds and raindrops everywhere!
I made homemade marshmallows (very cloudlike, no?) and tucked them in little parchment bags topped with “Thanks for *dropping * by bag topper labels.
Instead of bringing Jenny traditional baby shower gifts (this was her fourth baby!), guests brought freezer meals…
…and pampering goodies! Fun, right?
In all, great party, fabulous friends, yummy food… is it weird to admit that after writing this I’m missing our Denver house something fierce (and also wanting to make creme brulee)?
