Last weekend M and I threw a baby shower/cocktail party for some good friends in Connecticut. No games, no diaper cakes... simply friends getting together to have a few drinks in honor of the expecting couple!
While I loved planning everything, I think my favorite part was deciding on the desserts. In the end, it included a variety of stuffed cupcakes from J Cakes, orange and aqua M&Ms (the colors of the night), chocolate dipped strawberries, an Easter basket, and a bunch of bite-size treats inspired by Pinterest (Oreo balls, marshmallow pop, and chocolate pretzels)
But the hit of the night? Hands down the cookies from 1 Fine Cookie. She makes amazing personalized treats and will ship certain items (lucky for me since she's based in Boston, and soon will be taking Austin by storm). The cookies were like works of art- decorated with either an elephant (the invite conveniently had an elephant), monogram (of course) or fun designs while sticking with the orange and aqua color theme. Everyone loved them and wanted to know where they were from. Check out her site for more information about ordering and for recipes and decorating ideas if you're having a Martha moment :)
Can't wait to meet Baby H!
