When it comes to cakes, I tend to have outlandish ideas. Part of that comes from the fact that my mom is a wedding cake decorator. Another part comes from the fact that I worked at a bakery in high school and during college and so I know the norm and I know the fantastic. It also has something to do with the fact that I have a small bakery in my kitchen when it comes to my decorating supplies.
So when it was determined that my mom was going to be making the trip from Wisconsin to the shower, it made most sense that she was going to be doing the cake.

As I was reading an interesting article, Miss Mary, The Blog's #1 Fan, messaged me about how I needed to blog more often. Ironically, this article is one that I felt the need to share... and so this is what I'm going to do.
Now go read it. Think about it. And respond with your opinion. How young is too young to allow a child do their own DIY project? Literally... they seem to get to pick everything. I'll share my thoughts too... but not until I hear from you.

This past Sunday was the baby shower... Mario Bros. style! My goal with the shower was to have a theme but for it not to be over the top. So I was aiming to have the place look like an Italian restaurant with pops of Mario Bros. What does this mean? Well it means that I order table coverings from Linen 'n Things, give my excuse to purchase glass liquid dispensers, purchasing plants and flowers from Eastern Market, and then crafting up some Mario Bros. items in between. Today I'll show you the table decorations. (I need to spread this out so that we have multiple posts here... why, I'm not sure, but this is what I am doing).
