Sister’s Baby Shower in CT

So I had tweeted over the weekend that I was heading up to CT for my sister’s baby shower. My two sisters and I are so so very excited and anxiously waiting for the little one to come and since it would be our very first time being new aunties; we made sure that the shower would be the best there could be. However, I ran into a big of a snafu when I drove up Friday afternoon. The night before I had put together the diaper cake that I’ve been tweeting about and was all ready to go the next day.

Transporting the diaper cake was a bit tricky since I forgot to get some clear cellophane wrappers to wrap it in and tie it with a bow. Anywho, I had placed it on the backseat of the car and had placed few bags on both sides of the diaper cake so it wouldn’t budge. Running a little behind in picking up Georgetown cupcakes ( which to me are really comparable to Sprinkles – DROOL), it was pretty heavy enough that I placed it next to the diaper cake to keep it steady. Well one sudden stop made them both come topple over; cupcake icings smushed and diaper cake into smithereen. Well you can see that from the video. =/

Needless to say I was not a happy camper on my drive up since I had to stop and rearrange the cupcakes so they won’t get any worse which meant that I didn’t get to NYC in time to beat the rush hr traffic. You guessed it – it was an extra two hour of sitting in traffic going through to CT. Even when I did alternate routes, those routes were back to back with traffic. Anywho I eventualy got to my sister’s house and we all started decorating and setting up. We all woke up bright and early and next morning went smoothly til the end of the day and my sister was so happy with how everything went.

We also made sure there were tons of food and no one left hungry – haha. Omg, we ordered more than enough desserts but my sister’s in-laws brought even more dessert so our dessert table turned into a buffet table – haha.

With the help of my sisters, we scooped off the icings off most of the cupcakes and re-piped them. Everything was done and set aside, however, Kayla, sister’s bulldog, decided to help herself to four of the cupcakes – sigh. Good thing we had enough dessert to go around – hehe.

The cute little favors that my sister Lilly did.
Seriously, she should have her own business.

took this pic from sister’s cam.
other side says “a baby is brewing” – get it? coffee beans? haha.

Then Sunday I woke up early to do my sister’s makeup for maternity shoot. She always wanted to go Yale Campus to take photos which was a beautiful setting. The weather was cooperating albeit a bit chilly but we made do.

Here’s a snapshot of the shoot.

  16. This is a very good arrangement for the baby program. The baby shower party would have really enjoyed much. Since it comes rarely it is very exciting when we host the party. Diaper cakes and chocolates all just greatly add to the party. Great arrangements and great diaper cakes.
