End of Summer Baby Shower

A couple of weeks ago, I was able to surprise a close friend of mine with an owl-themed baby shower in Seattle, WA. I baked all my goodies which consists of 3 kinds of mini french macarons [hazelnut Nutella, pistachio and raspberry], green tea cream puffs and butter mochi from California and took them on the plane with me. Despite me being many miles away, I was able to execute a very fun baby shower with help of some friends. Here are the pictures of that day. Congratulations, Sophie and Joey! We can't wait for the arrival of baby Lucy.
This shower was inspired by this baby shower invitation from Tiny Prints

All the goodies...

The set up of the table before we dressed it up with a lot of yummy food! I made paper poms with double sided satin ribbon hanging off the chandelier. I reused a wood stump that I used for my wedding to place the little macaron topiary which I made using a foam ball, a 1 inch dowel and a clay pot dressed with moss.

Here it is... with ALL the food!

I used gift tags from Tiny Prints to re-purpose as signage.

I also re-purposed the address labels to put on the party favors, which were
more macarons to take home. :)
