crafts: favors and flowers

Flowers for a Baby Shower

Flowers for a Baby Shower

Shhhh.. don’t tell anyone but I belong to a Secret Society. That’s pretty much all I can tell you about this amazing group of woman. Well, that along with how smart, charming, witty and down right fashionable they are. Ok, enough about the Secret Society.

A few weeks back we had a baby show for one of the girls. I got to be on the Decorating Committee, which basically meant I supplied favors and flowers. I’m a crafter who never really crafts so I get excited when I have a chance to be creative and make pretty things. But sometimes I get ahead of myself. Like in this case… I knew I wanted to do something in a box and only came up with the what part after purchasing the boxes. Not really a horrible thing BUT I waffled back and forth between a cupcake and cookies. Cookies won out because we were getting a fancy cake for the shower and the double cake thing seemed a bit redundant. Bad idea! Or maybe the bad part was using recipes I had never made before. I decided to go with two types of cookies, a chocolate chip cookie and a Martha Stewart Butterscotch cookie. Both turned out pretty crappy and I was honestly embarrassed to have my name attached to them. So much so that I didn’t even include the chocolate chip cookies in the box.

Even if what was inside the box sucked at least the decor on the box was cute to look at, no?

I got the idea for boxes adorned with ribbon and silhouettes from Sara Hicks Malone of Party Perfect blog. It’s a great blog so check her out.
