Tea Party Baby Shower

**those taking a peek from cuttlebug challenge blogspot, my invitation, goodie bag/favor, centerpiece and book are all in this same post**
So I feel like I haven't been up to my usual crafty self but I have been BUSY! Just focused on one thing...My brother's girlfriend's baby shower! I can't wait I am counting down the days! Only 5 more to go! Woohoo! So here is what I have been up to!

Here are the invitations: The teacup was cut from Dreams come True. Embossed with D'Vine Swirls.
All of the party info was inside the "teabag". Along with this cute poem:
Join us for a spot of tea
In honor of Linzie,and her baby-to-be.
Don't forget your party dress,
to make their shower a success!

These are the napkin rings. Didn't "need" to make them but I love them!
This is the centerpiece for the tables. I love these! There will be 2 on each table and I made a total of 12! That's a lot of dum-dums! Close to 1,000! LOL! I stuck the dumm dums into 4inch Styrofoam balls. The "stem" is a dowel painted green and a little terra cotta pot at the bottom. I painted them pink, embossed the strip of paper across the top with d'vine swirls and cut "It's a girl" from my potpourri cart in white vinyl. This is the diaper cake I made. I wanted it to look like the teapot was pouring flowers, and still might try again,but for now I like it!

These are little bags I bought that contain everything the guests need to participate in our games.
A pen, game sheet and a new mommy dilemma card and clever solution card. They will fill these out at the shower and we will mix them up and read them so that the dilemma doesn't match the solution. Should be funny. This is a little advice book. All the dilemma and solution cards will go in here after the shower, along with a few photos!My sock bouquet! The flowers are all socks rolled up to look like roses! Her name is going to be Sophie! TOO CUTE! I cut these letters with Mini Monograms.Here are the favors! They are Hershey bar sliders! YUMMY! I have 45 of these! I hope the chocolate lasts that long in our house!

Thanks for looking!
