duckies and daisies [a baby shower]

Friday, July 16, 2010

we threw our longtime staff a baby shower for her fourth child. she's due in august but knowing that this is her fourth, we had to have it soon. venue was at our office and we went with the duck theme. i offered to do the decor and styling. a few months back i had already quietly started to collect duck-themed elements that i think we can use for the party. let me share some photos from today's party table.

my favorite would have to be the hand towel flags i used as a banner and the daisies i arranged in royal blue sundae glasses i found at the grocery's (kroger's) summer clearance rack.

the baby blue-colored cake's flavor was white chocolate with raspberry filling from rustika bakery and i added the sugar duck toppers i got from hobby lobby.

cupcakes were picked up from randall's and decorated with my DIY duck flags made of ribbon. cupcake stand is just a white giftbox which i glued fabric ribbon on.
