Pea in a Pod Baby Shower

My friend Lisa…IMG_4287 had a baby shower for her sister-in law.  Her and I brainstormed about shower themes and decided to go with a Pea in the Pod theme since the sex of the baby will be a surprise.  When there was that terrific $5 off a $5 purchase at Hallmark she snagged some Pea in the Pod invitations for free…(If you are a follower of ChaChing on a Shoestring you would have known about that dealio ;-)DSCN0418 DSCN0419 Sometimes coming up with a theme makes it easier to plan the menu.  And let’s be honest, most people are way more impressed with a themed party with Betty Crocker boxed poppy seed muffins when you name them Pop“pea” seed muffins to go along with your theme :-)

The menu:

Seven layer pea salad

Fruit Tray with Fruit Dip (brick of cream cheese, small jar of marshmallow fluff and 1 tbl. of vanilla whipped together) that said “Have a “pea”ce of fruit.”

  2. Christine says:

    that is such a sweet theme! Love the cupackes!!

  3. Awesome! Peas are my favorite!

  4. You girls were so clever with that theme!

  5. S Club Mama says:

    if I ever get to throw a baby shower, I love this idea! It's so adorable.

  6. Quilting in My Pyjamas says:

    Ok those cupcakes are completely sweet. I really wish you were one of my RL friends!

    I'm off to find some oreos to make oreo pops …a big ask since oreos are a little like hen's teeth here …we only get the regular ones.

    Thanks so much for putting that suggestion in my brain ! I can hear the oreos calling me and they will not be silenced.

  7. Thanks for all your help sweet friend!! Can't believe how hard it is to find green airheads. So glad I gave the fondant a shot. It was much easier than I thought and kind of fun!! It was interesting painting it with the shimmer mixed with mint extract.

  8. Ugh… the creativity that flows on this blog is sick! : )

    Too cute. I've only ever seen fondant on "Cake Boss" (which I LOVE!), but never given it a shot of my own… even though I am my family's official cake decorator. : )

  9. We did a theme baby shower when Jessica had Mabry and since she wanted to get her started on a library of children's books, we based our theme and menu off this. I bought Golden Books like: Chicken Little and place chicken salad sandwiches in front of the book etc: Also our centerpieces were a book and then items related to the book that Jessica could take for Mabry, such as: Rub-A-Dub-Dub with a rubber duck, baby wash cloth etc: Lots of fun but really makes your brain hurt coming up with things, but well worth it.

  10. I had never thought of doing a "Pea in A Pod" theme for a baby shower – I love your ideas! Thank you for sharing this with us.

  11. Happy Momma says:

    Super Cute!!! Love it and all the food that goes with!

  12. Kara@ Creations by Kara says:

  13. Tracy Suzanne says:

    It's just to hard to pick one thing I like. I guess that's the point of a theme party. They are all just the cutest ideas. Pea Pickin Cute, ha-ha!!! Great job ladies.

    Hugs…Tracy :)

  14. What a cute idea…well done

  15. annaliese says:

    love this! especially the cupcakes and centerpieces. having the cards with the clever titles in front of all the food is a great idea–really ties it all together :)

  16. oh can you share the oreo pops? I have never heard of them. I am thinking they would be awesome for my daughter's party.

  17. Jessica Jones says:

    That is so cute! I love a good theme!

    I am actually hosting a party planning package giveaway next week with a couple other mommy bloggers if you woud like to join us!
