A bridal shower and baby shower

A couple weeks ago I planned and held a bridal shower for my sister, Erin, and a surprise baby shower for my sister-in-law, Sherra. Only had a few days to prepare so it was a bit crazy but a lot of fun. 

I had gotten some new cake pans from Michaels and used the petal shaped one for Erin's. And, a side note, that IH coffee mug was a funny gift from Erin and and her fiance, Bradley, since they know I like JD. At least coffee still tastes the same in it. haha. 

 I came across this "cookie in a jar" idea online ( Cowgirl Cookies) and there was even a link to print out those cute labels and baking directions.

  Candy molds for the baby shower cake. I'm so excited that a Bulk Barn opened up in Yorkton as they have a great cake decorating section with pans, coloured discs, molds, and many other cake related supplies.

Viva paper towels work completely amazing for smoothing out the butter cream. 
 Done! And thankfully it survived the 1 1/2 hour trip down to the seed farm where we had the party. :)

Diaper cakes. Erin had fun putting them together.

My cute niece. Love the headband! :)

 Graham making his amazing stuffed mushrooms.

You can't go wrong with chocolate, right?!

Erin, Sherra, and Emily helped get this spread ready.

 I used a heart shaped cookie cutter for the butter.

We played a few games.

 Say "Awwwww" :) I'll have four nieces when Sherra has her baby!

Sherra had lots of help opening her gifts. :)

You really do have the cutest nieces and nephews. And, I love the cakes. What a great idea to use a cookie cutter for the butter.
