Sprinkles and Sailboats

Happy Tuesday blog family! Are you wondering what these two words have in common? Well about a week ago, Kristyn and I hosted a sprinkle for a friend of ours from the Junior League. This is Lauren's third child, so we did not want to do a traditional shower. Instead we went with a diapers and wipes sprinkle with a nautical theme. The nautical theme just kind of happened after I created the invitation below and things just took off from there.

We had a week to prepare, so I decided to mix some custom design with some Making Memories scrapbook paper that I already had. The event was held at a restaurant, so our first challenge was a banner and how to hang it. We knew that we would be setting out in the regular dining room, so I decided to make a small banner with "It's A Boy" on both sides (this only works for boy and not girl). I tied the ends to two wood dowels and stick them into foam wedged into glass flower pots that were finished with a ribbon and what else, but sand. (Photo of us all posing with Lauren...next to me).

The favor was a fish shaped cookie cutter attached to a bag of sugar cookie mix (store bought). A ribbon held a note of thanks with cooking directions for the cookies on the back. And of course, the sprinkle had to have some games. I created a little game book using some of the store bought paper and added a tag and whale using a Martha Stewart punch.

Kristyn created a FABULOUS diaper cake (complete with an anchor :))and we also had some fun cupcake toppers, but we forgot the cupcakes...did I mention that we had only ONE week to plan?!?!?!?
