This past weekend I had the honour of hosting a baby shower for my sister's first baby! As you can imagine, I wanted the shower to be something super special and something that everyone would enjoy. The pictures below chronicled some of the decorations, table layouts, and menu items that were part of the shower. The theme was classic Winnie the Pooh! Hope you enjoy!

|Hunny Vanilla Beehive Cupcakes|
How to make Tigger Tails: Take pretzel sticks (I couldn't find full size, so I used some half size pretzels I found at Super Store). Dip in melted orange wafers. Let set. Then drizzle "stripes" with melted semi-sweet chocolate chips mixed with 1 tbsp. shortening.
Piglets in blankets were simply hot dogs cut up into quarters and wrapped with pilsbury pastry then baked in the oven til browned.
- 1 lb strawberries, washed, hulled and quartered
- 2 lemons, washed and quartered
- 3/4 cup honey
- 6 cups water
Thanks for stopping by! Check later this weekend for the cupcake recipe! They were absolutely delicious! :)
Have a great weekend my friends!
