Baby Showers and Birthdays!

This weekend we threw a baby shower for my S-I-L, Sara. She is due 5 days before me. Sara has such a bright and bubbly personality, so I knew that I wanted the decor to be anything but pale pink. :) Here are a few pics from the shower. We did a milk & cookies bar, cute petit fours with Millie's initials, fruit kabobs, cheeseball & spicy pretzels. Oh, and my sister gave me the recipe for the yummiest punch. I will share the recipe soon...it was SO GOOD! The color scheme (as you can see) was chocolate brown, hot pink and orange. So fun!! Sara had lots of family and friends shower her with love. She received some super cute things. I can't wait for little Millie to arrive!


And today is my beautiful Momma's birthday!!

Happy Birthday, Momma! I'm so blessed to have YOU as my mother...you're the best.

Love,

Jill--

I love the glass pitchers you used for the milk on your cookie bar. Where did you find them? I am doing a cookies and milk party for my daughters first bday and would love to have some of those for the milk. I have been looking for them and have been unsuccessful. Thank you!! It was a precious shower!!

How cute! I had flagged your comment when I blogged about the orange & pink baby shower I threw over the summer, because you said you were doing a milk & cookie bar. I'm doing that for my 4yo daughter's bday party, so I wanted to come here for ideas. THANKS!! And where did you get that cute milk bottle?
