Turquoise Shower ~

This past weekend we threw a shower for my sister at my house. Her primary color for her upcoming ceremony is turquoise, so off I went! Give the dog a bone right? Although I am happy to say, that for the decorating, all that I actually went out and bought were the balloons - not bad.


You might be asking yourself "What is that hanging over the counter?" Well it is indeed a stick...straight from my backyard. 

My neighbors might think I have lost my mind, but I dug around to find just the right one - size actually does matter here - and I attached it with a few "S" hooks. 


Then I started hanging lanterns, crystals, ribbon and a few words for the happy couple. 

And for the dessert - we made cupcakes and displayed them on a cake stand that was actually one of their gifts - just putting it to good use!

 Here is one of my latest cake stands made from a plate and candle holder 

I love the large sprinkles on top - they seemed to almost shimmer. 
 

And of course no party is complete without the amazing cake cookies...

And a few other little details...

And tomorrow I will show you how I switched from Shower to Super Bowl!
