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

  • S Club Mama

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

  • Quilting in My Pyjamas

    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.

    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.

    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. : )

    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.
