This morning I hosted a little surprise baby celebration. A friend of mine is due with baby #2 in just two short weeks and doesn't want a baby shower ... but that doesn't mean we shouldn't celebrate (plus it gave me an excuse to really take my new Silhouette out for a whirl). Last night I made a few quick decorations, gathered yummy treats, and was all set to party at today's playgroup.
I purchased the cupcake wrapper and elephant templates at the Silhouette digital store, and the pennant banner was made using free images. Since I used only materials I had on hand, all of the decorations cost me less than $2. That's reason enough to party.
The trouble with surprise parties, though, is that the guest of honor is pretty clueless. So when the mama-to-be didn't join us for playgroup because her toddler had a runny nose, it was a real bummer. I won't be deterred ... it is all getting boxed up to drop off post-naptime.
heat transfer material (I love that stuff!). Recognize the birds from my blog banner? I imported images from Picnik right into the Silhouette software. So handy! Hmmm ... now Ruby is going to need a Homemade by Jill onesie.
