Violet’s Chanel Baby Shower

IMG_5553
I hosted a Chanel insprired baby sprinkle for one of my dear friends, Eden, and her Baby Violet on the way. Eden is also the mother of Juliette, who happens to be Kate’s partner in crime. Well, the relationship right now is more Kate bosses Juju around, but I can see where their future is headed. Haha! Anyway, we went with a Coco Chanel theme, and it really turned out rather perfect. You can see part of the tablescape above. We had just a few finger foods since it was at 2 in the afternoon, but our friend Stefanie did an AMAZING job on the cake. Absolutely perfect. She also made Kate’s pink poodle birthday cake. And she might quit taking cake orders from me!
I also made some baked “V” in honor of the cheese of the month…heehee get it?

We used this shower for several of our ideas, but Violet’s nursery is going to be yellow and gray so we went with those colors. Before her name was picked, it was going to be yellow, gray, and aqua, and since Violet is her name, it has been thrown in there too!

We did an Italian soda bar which was a big hit and oh so delicious!

So glad I am a keeper of mismatched junk. I found this mug with violets on it that morning in my china cabinet!

Eden loves pearls, so it was very fitting to have them with our Chanel theme!

I enlisted the help of one of our Hubbies for this cute sign! He is in graphic design, is extremely talented, and might possibly be the future father in law of sweet Pres.

The hostesses and Mommy to be. Crazy that we are the Mommies of 6 littles!

And I cant have a post without my cute kiddies. This was after the shower was over. I will say that hosting a shower with two little ones in tow and a hubby in the middle of exams proved how much he does help when he is able! We had a wonderful time and I hope Eden and Violet felt our love for them.
This is also my first time to use Windows Live Writer…I think I like it?!
