Nic's Pooh-Themed Baby Shower

Sunday we celebrated our good friend/co-worker, Nic, & her lil baby to be. No one knows whether it's a boy or a girl...and the suspense is killing me!! I have NO idea which it could be - ps, I hate calling it, an IT!! Anyway, it was a gorgeous day - a little too warm, especially since we were on the water in Point Loma...I think it was just a bit humid or something...but we survived!

We arrived a bit on the later side, but that was due in part to me living forever away from this location, and picking up 2 other ladies. We also had very precious cargo to safetly drive down - a FABulous Classic Pooh themed diaper cake! Isn't it adorbs??

She'd given me a ton of classic Pooh cotton fabric she'd found, and asked me to come up with whatever I could to use it up. So on the bottom tier, there are 4 blocks that spell out "POOH" - those I cut from a long piece of plywood (I had extra on hand from the ABC blocks I did earlier this year)...then I cut out little squares of her fabric & mod podge'd them on each side.

Finally, I painted the wooden letters a light yellow color & glued them on the front - I LOVE these little blocks!

After we got settled in & said our hellos, we snacked on some yummy croissant sandwhiches, chips, homemade potato salad & fruit salad, yummm! Then we gathered in to watch Nic open gifts - of course I couldn't wait til she got to mine ;-)  Of course in addition to the cake, I made her a few other things. I found some adorrrrrrable, super old school, double classic Pooh iron-ons:
So I put those on a few onesies, then reinforced them by sewing along the borders (should've taken pics of them...grrrr). I put 2 on the top & bottom tiers of the cake as well...on the front of the ribbon, so she can use those later if she wants.

Then I was also inspired by some first hand/foot print frames I saw online...but I thought to myself..."psshhh, I can make those!!" And so I did - wish I would've done this for Kapri's 'prints', but I swear I wasn't creative then...or maybe I was just lazy, HA!

How fun is this diaper cake?! The cake topper little guy, is a soft teether toy I found online - the bottom/feet are soft rubber, and the middle of him is crinkly & loud...then the tags for one hand - which all babies love!. Then I found a cute wipes case, which is sorta holding the pooh teether toy up a bit! Also in the back, are 2 burp cloths that I also made with the fabric Nic gave me to play with. Can't wait to meet baby Reding!! Love ya Nic!! xoxo
