Sugar and Spice

It's way more fun to decorate a place that's way more fun...
                                                         ...and filled with character.

Last weekend, we held a baby shower for my niece, Amy.
You remember her, don't you?
She seems to keep me busy after Thanksgiving.
Two years ago - wedding dress shopping.  White Friday.
One year ago - her sister's baby shower.  Blue Friday.
This time it's Pink Friday!

It's always fun to decorate in pink.

These jumbo cupcakes were out of this world
with French buttercream frosting and so cute!
They are sold at our local Pick 'n Save.

I cut custom cupcake wrappers out of scrapbook papers
using my wavy rotary cutter on the top.

And what's a shower without a few pompon flowers on fishline?!

This was the mother of all pompons - about 18" across.
You can buy pompon flowers pre-folded and fluff them yourself -
or you can fold them with your own tissue like I did.
They are simple.   Here's how Martha does it.

Even the milk glass candy dish got dressed up.

I'm so happy Amy liked this sugar and spice garland enough
to take it with her for her nursery in California!

Once I got rolling, pompons started spewing from my fingers!
Garland!  On stems in a vase!  A corsage!
Oh, don't get me started!

You see, me and flower pompons go way back.

  1. I do recall doing something similar to this with klennex tissues "back in the day".


Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet-
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
