A Royal Bridal Shower

Okay so I am so excited to share pictures of this shower with you guys! Since it just so happens that it fell on the Royal Wedding weekend, it was a royalty themed shower, complete with elaborate hats! My mom's best friends gave it for my older sister. We love them like family. Check out this super cute shower!

They wanted really elegant cupcakes for the shower and then I was contracted to create them. We chose red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting because that will be one of their wedding cake flavors. For the decorations, I made gumpaste roses (with the help of my mother and sister-in-law). It just so happened that I had to decorate them on the night where I didn't get off until 9pm. Talk about last minute!
I LOVE the way that they turned out! And the little wraps are so cute!

This is the sister-in-law that saved the rose day! Isn't her outfit just the cutest?! I love hats. I think all women should wear them from time to time!
 This is me with my mom and sisters. The bride is the one in the green dress.
 And these would be the two amazing ladies that gave the shower.
 And the lovely Bride! She decorated her hat herself. Actually, all of the women in my family did. We have crafty genes :)
 Half way through the shower, we forced the bride to take off her hat and wear a tiara. What kind of royal wedding shower would it be without a princess?!

 Oh I just love the cupcakes. They turned out so much better than I had initially thought!
This is me and baby sister. Isn't she cute? You wouldn't be able to tell, but there is a 7 year difference between us. A 14 year one between baby sister and big sister.

And then there was the food. It was to. die. for. We had chicken salad, grape salad my favorite, quiche that was the cheesiest and most amazing ever, ham biscuits, cucumber sandwiches (what kind of "tea" would it be without those!) and of course the cupcakes.

 She looks excited about her Corningware. And she should be! I LOVE mine!

Here is a final shot of the crew, sister-in-law included. I love these ladies very much! :) And aren't the hats fabulous!?
So I went back to my mom and dad's house for a bit after the shower because we were sending baby sister off to her first prom! Mom showed me her new baby bird's nest in her hanging pots. I just had to share this little ball of fluffy cuteness with you guys!
That's all that I have for today, friends. I have so many fun projects up my sleeve that I can't wait to share with you guys! I just have to find the time to do them and then find the time to edit the photos and blog them! Keep your eyeballs peeled! LOVE you guys!
