Just Too Sweet Baby Shower

I had the opportunity to throw my darling cousin a baby shower this last October.  I was so excited to do it, but it was hard to come up with just one theme!  My original theme was "Little Lemon" but in the end, I didn't love all the white and yellow. I felt it would look better with a bit of a punch color, so i threw in some pink and burlap and turned it into "Just Too Sweet."  I loved this theme more in the long run, because anyone who knows my cousin knows this theme completely sums her up!  She is an amazing individual and I'm so blessed to have been able to grow up with her, shes more of a sister to me then a cousin.
For the sign I used letters cut out of fabric and pinned them to the onesie, that way when the party was over we could use them as plain onesies afterwards. 
Lemon cupcakes with Vanilla Bean frosting and fondant flowers.
Mini lemon cupcakes with lemon sugar cookies.
Madagascar Vanilla Sugar Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting.
Cheesecake balls dipped in White Chocolate.
Strawberry Pie Parfaits
Strawberry Lemonade, and Crossant sandwiches from Costco.
These are pictures of the crafts I made for this project.  A Burlap table runner, candy jars, and Bottle wands.  Tutorials on how to make the bottles and burlap table runner can be found HERE.  For recipes to this party click HERE!
