Waddle it Be Baby Shower

Just putting the last of the decorations away and sorting through the pictures from my sister-in-law Whitney’s baby shower in Wisconsin last weekend. When Whitney told me last fall she wanted to have a gender reveal shower I was jumping up and down excited for weeks. I spent the next gazillion hours on Pinterest and Etsy searching for the perfect theme and decorations. Finally we settled on a “Waddle it Be?” penguin theme. Not a bad plan for this frigid February we’ve been having.

The thing I like most about throwing parties like this is the chance to meet and work with people who are as passionate and inspired by the creative process as me. For invitations, favors and graphics I worked with Puzzle Prints in California. They helped make even the tiniest details of the shower come together.  But the thing we’ll be talking about for months to come in our family are the penguin cookies made by my fellow Minnesota blogger Amber at By Amber’s Hands. Tell me you don’t instantly die from cuteness when you see these cookies:

She put together a DIY post for the cookies this week – hop over and check out the great work she does and then bookmark her for the next time you need cookies that will steal the show.  Thanks so much for making the shower extra special Amber!!

Here’s a little snapshot of Whitney’s day:
