Showering with Tea

Did you enjoy your extra hour of sleep?!!? I did!

My cousin D. is expecting a baby boy in February. We (her family and her friends) are going to be showering her and her first child in a few weeks in a tea room in Pasadena. I love non-home showers for a few reasons - 1) No cooking and cleaning for the hostess; and 2) A chance to do something different and/or new (like have afternoon tea!).

As you know, I'm not very creative (I can barely draw stick figures) but I knew I wanted a baby in a teacup graphic on the invitations. Lucky for me, I have friends in artsy places. The BF's business partner whipped up this adorable graphic.

Too cute non? I use the above to send out a 'save the date' since quite a few guests are from out of state (and to buy me some more time to make the invites).

Then, I had the BF shrink the graphic to fit my invites. Ta-dah!!!!

I just want to give huge props to my corner rounder and my paper cutter. Oh, of course to the BF and his business partner!

I'm looking forward to having afternoon tea. The little sandwiches and the fresh scones are my favourite. Most of all, I'm looking forward to seeing D and her belly!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! P.S. Stop by tomorrow for a SURPRISE!!
