I was happy to receive in the mail an invitation to a surprise baby shower in honor of my college buddy, Brenda. It’s been almost 10 years since we’ve seen each other and recently reconnected. She’s married and has one son and one baby girl on the way. I was excited to see her again and be part of the surprise. It just so happened that her baby shower fell on a weekend that I was free of orders so I wanted to do something special…why not cookies!
The first set I I knew right away I wanted to do. I love to incorporate siblings into a design so why not add big brother so he can have his own cookie!
Second set had to be included…baby rattle, onesie, carriage & bib. (not shown are footprints)
Brenda & David already picked out their daughter’s name…so why not make cookie pops to spell out her name!
I needed more…so I made filler cookies…stars and flower pops.
I had so much fun with these that I took a few more pictures…
Now what to do with all these cookies? For over 12 years, I’ve been making diaper cakes for friends and family. It’s one of the most practical gifts to give and they look so neat! Well, I wish I had taken pictures of all these diaper cakes, because it’s so popular now! There’s websites devoted to selling diaper cakes…who knew? So, here’s my version…
I just loved how everything turned out with this. I love how the big cookies stand out and how the flowers and stars worked very well as fillers.
I didn’t put a stick on the bib because I wanted it to hang like this…
I was very excited to see my friend, Brenda and to see her reaction when was surprised… unfortunately someone told her about the baby shower! Oh well! Congratulations to Brenda & David, may they continue down the alphabet and hopefully pass us up! ^_^
