"MUM" Baby Shower

This was the most scenic baby shower ever! I was privileged to be able to help with it! This was for one of my party throwin' partners, Laurel. Her sis-in-law Aime took the reigns and came up with the idea of a "Laurel's going to be a MUM" theme. 

Our friend Amanda's family owns this beautiful property on Pebble Beach and allowed us to host it there. Score!

All down the driveway were balloons and tissue mums to guide guests around back. 

My candy buffet, that I had WAY too much fun creating, greeted guests on the deck.

Cupcake table. 

Aime found this idea for mum cupcakes and so I volunteered to give 'em a whirl. You simple cut mini marshmallows on the diagonal and then swirl them in the desired colored sugar that you want. A little time consuming but easy and beautiful.

Sarah spray painted her crib again to match the shower colors and it was the perfect place for gifts.

A lot of the mom-to-be's family took care of the menu. There was a crepe bar with sweet and savory fixins, along with many other scrumptious delights.

I LOVE the Farmers Markets on the Monterey Peninsula!!! Fresh flowers can be found year round and at reasonable prices. So, why not adorn the tables with as many as possible?

We were blessed with such a gorgeous day! We all couldn't believe the "heat" we were getting. Another fun and well worth the work (thank goodness for teamwork) baby shower!
