the shower of Lady Bugs

I just got back from Emily's baby shower. Though it was a 2 hour drive each way, it was totally worth it, and great to see my friend in her very pregnant state. I was really impressed with the shower overall. Trina, the host, was very clever in keeping the ladybug theme, and it actually spread to the guests and their gifts as well. The crafty nature of Emily's family and friends was impressive. Some highlights:

Trina's friend Janelle made these adorable cupcakes. White frosting with red sprinkles and strawberries, where the other ones had green frosting with lady bugs on top.

Emily's sister in law made this cute diaper cake. It was a three tier cake (not edible of course), surrounded with cute accessories like pacifiers, the lady bug sandals on top, and combs.

With the already chosen name Sophia, the obvious nickname is Sophie, so Emily received this cute hand painted pillow. I guess the baby lays on it in the parent's lap. Adorable and functional!

This was the most amazing quilt I had seen in a long time. Emily's mother had quilted this Hungry Little Caterpillar themed quilt, and you could tell a lot of talent and love were put into it. I would hope for something like this as well. I thought it cute, especially with the recent onesie I had made in the same theme.

Emily has already decided that the theme of Sophia's room will be Red, Black and White, so how appropriate that Trina painted these letters for her room. A nice splay of color, both solid and patterned, and a treasure for any child's room. Something that can grow old with her as well.

Last, but certainly not least, how can I leave out the picture of Emily with the onesie I made for her. I cant wait to see the photo of baby Sophia rockin the outfit!
