:Alligator Baby Shower Full Review:

Hi Crafters,
Here's an update from the shower this past weekend.  We had a great time! It's always lovely to see the co-worker fam outside of school.

We did the food on the island.  A few of the highlights were a cheese ball, BLT bites, and spinach/artichoke dip.

I made little alligator tents to label the food. Here's a snap shot of the dessert bar.  This alligator is the same one from the invites and came from Create a Critter.

We had cupcakes, lemon cake, s'more dippers, and brownies.  I made the chandelier decorations with Mini-monograms and New Arrival.

The diaper cake used mini monograms, new arrival, and opposites attract for the accents.

The banner pieces came from Teresa Collin's Chic and Scary.  I custom cut the white strips with an exacto knife.  The font is from Opposites attract and outlined with the markers.
I used blue tulle as the string to hold everything together.

 Here's the whole shot of her gift.  Burp cloths, name canvas, and memory book (below). "Drew" is cut out with a shadow and regular font from Designer Calendar.  The canvas measures 8x23.
The mom-to-be is also a crafter so instead of making her a scrapbook I came up with this memory record book.  Each page has a monthly calendar and a space for notes on the opposite page

I used my bind it all to bind everything together.  She seemed to really enjoy the shower.  Baby Drew got a lot of great goodies!  Can't wait to meet him!

Happy Crafting,
