Babies are brewing in a Tea for Two Baby Shower

What a fun yet busy weekend.  I was a shared hostess of a double baby shower.  And truly this was unlike any other shower I've been too.  When it involves my Diva Buddies, whom I've scrapped about before on here, then you know it's going to be a good time.

To start off with, my friend Jeannine is a world class decorator.  Here are some of the Martha Stewart-y decorations she and her sister came up with.

Some blinged out pumpkins for the coming babies.

I made a set of teapots for the a guest drawing.  Brown and pink for the girl team and brown and blue for the boy team.  More details on the teapots/teacups below.

Each Mommy-to-be received a baby buggy for their baby rooms at home.

We had a Onesie Decorating Station for the guests to make for the babies.  Here are two I made for them.

And the greatest station at the baby shower.  The Cara-tini and Tina-tini stations.  Ha ha ha.  The Mommies-to-be couldn't join in but all the guests were able to toast to the coming bundles of joy.  

Truly, it was great fun and I had a wonderful time helping with the decorations.  Below is a closer look at what I made.

The Pink buggy was made using the DCWV Luxury Stack.  The borders are Martha Stewart border punches.  The buggy template is from My Time Made Easy.  The Brown/Blue buggy was made using the DCWV Linen Stack.

The teapots were also made using the same DCWV stacks.  Both teapots, cups and phrases were all from My Time Made Easy.

The flower design is Tim Holtz's Grunge Flower technique that I used with paper instead of grunge board.  I also used his Alterations Flower Sizzix die .

The cups, designs and phrases are digital elements from My Time Made Easy.  I colored the cups with Copic Markers.  After completing the cup, I traced a second cup on paper, glued only the edges to the Colored cup and inserted a Gift Card in the slot at the top.  They made great gift card holders for the Guest prizes.

So that's what I did this weekend.  How about you?
