Ships Ahoy, It's A Boy

One of my best and oldest friends is having her first baby boy in October!  As I will be in NY on an internship I cannot be at the birth (I miss everything cool!) I felt an extra need to give a cool baby shower.  I found an invitation on etsy and so I did my best to copy it.  I just used word and google images and got something pretty close.  Here is this example from etsy and where to buy it here.

I painted this sign for the baby room.  (Keate is their last name.)  I used those cardboard-ish blocks from Hobby Lobby, acrylic paint, buttons, and baker's twine.  I love them.

Here is a close up of the A.  I just loved the button with the baker's twine tied in it. 

These were the favors for winning games.  I found the anchors in the "little wooden things" section at HL and painted them red.

 Here is the "guess the baby food" game.  I'm really proud of the papers to write the answers on, which matched the invites.  We also played the "guess how big her belly is" game with yarn.  The best game was this memory/candy bar game.  Better explained here.

These are mini chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream.  They are in adorable Martha Stewart mini cupcake papers that my grandma gave me.  That is the package that never stops giving!

The great napkins I found at Target this summer.  They had great nautical themed party stuff!

My table with the pennant banner.  

Banner into the living room.  This was made with glue, scrapbook paper, twine, and lots of Netflix.  

Lemon cupcakes with strawberry filling and vanilla buttercream.

Sugar cookie love!  The ones in the back are sailboats with red and blue bottoms.  The mini ones just have red, white, and blue sprinkles.

Magic Cookie Bars.

I love anchors!

This is Ruby and we are adorable.
