Safari Baby Shower

They celebrated sweet baby Cash in wild safari style! I mixed zebras, elephants and giraffes with some large leaves to follow suit with the invitation! Playful and adorable is always a good match for a baby shower!safari4.jpgsafari9.jpgsafari8.jpgsafari5.jpg

Lil Pumpkin is Sweet as Pie

My niece was trying to decide on the theme for her November baby shower. She was wavering between “Lil Pumpkin” and “Sweet as Pie”; well, why not both? Orange streamers and little baby pumpkins were strewn like confetti around house. Pies from her favorite local pie baker, Mom’s Apple Pie (boy, were they scrumptious), were the centerpieces of the dessert table.  And, of course, there were as many MMB cookies as I could carry on the plane. (Seriously, the DIA security folks don’t even bat an eye at my copious amounts of cookies anymore.) Here are some of the cookies that were plated for the dessert table. (Kaleida Cuts for the win on the wonkie onesie cookie cutter).

And these bad boys were bagged and tagged for the favors.  (yep, it’s a boy…)

Boy, Oh Boy

There are some people in life that you just HAVE to admire.  These cookies are heading to a baby shower celebrating the coming of their FOURTH boy! Holy testosterone! (As you can tell, we have a mere two children.  And I was pretty happy to have the energy for them….).

Blue and the number 4 were interwoven throughout the set. I added a little silver bling because everybody deserves a little bling (especially a mom of four!).  The “4” cutter is part of the zebrawood cutter set from SheyB ! They have such fast and friendly service!

This little outfit cutter is my current favorite.  Can’t get over how adorable it is. Thank you Kaleida Cuts (so many designs to take advantage of!)!!! The clever technique is from the genius Tammy Holmes.  Utterly brilliant design.  Utterly delicious eye candy.

Every boy in this family has a name that begins with the letter “C.” The fourth will as well. And heaven forbid that I not take advantage of a chance to word play.  I knew love was in the foreseeable future…

Little Boy Blue (ok, teal…)

Boy, oh boy, more beautiful baby boys!

Baby Lambros’s September 10th arrival left us starry eyed!  His room is neutral with teal accents so that was the color inspiration for this cookie platter.

Details of the bib and the bottle.  Thank you Hillary (aka the Cookie Countess) for the stencil! Some day I will own an airbrush machine.  Until then, it’s a fairly.dry.paint.brush for me!

Oh Boy!

Something in the water.  Lots and lots of baby boys lately.  For this 20 cookie order, I was given some wonderful details with which to work.  Like the fact that Caelan had arrived on his actual due date.  I cannot remember that last time I heard of that happening.  Thus, the cookie in the back (sorry, forgot to take an individual pic) had 3 speech bubbles: due date: Apr 7  arrival date: Apr 7  ‘this boy already has his act together’.  You know how I love a good play on words.  This resulted in the SONshine cookie.  I wanted to use springlike colors so I used a nice robin egg blue with a happy Easter egg yellow as the color theme.   Cute, eh?DSC_0656 DSC_0654 DSC_0646 DSC_0650 DSC_0676 DSC_0672

Bouncing Baby Boy

This was a quick, last minute addition to the baking schedule.  Friend at work asked for a box of cookies for a new baby boy.  Such a happy time, the arrival of a new little one.  Onesies are a go-to shape for new baby cookies and I must admit that I have a ‘thing’ for argyle.  I also was happy to try a design that had been sleeping in the recesses of my mind: mommy loves daddy loves baby loves mommy…. a little more work to make that just right but you get the gist.
