I made these Paper Dahlias for the baby shower. I got the template and idea on Martha Stewarts website.
I changed it up a little bit – because as much as I wish I was Martha, I am poor. I also don’t know how well Dahlia’s will do in the New Mexico heat. So instead of putting actual Dahlia buds I used Blow Pops. Martha says fancy plant, I say edible sugar!
Here is where you can go to get directions and the template to cut out the paper flowers.
Paper Dahlias with Blow Pops
This Saturday I hosted a baby shower for my friends Angie and Ryan.
Oddly enough I have hosted only one other baby shower in my life and that baby came early. And so did Dillan – she was a month early but healthy.
So, pregnant ladies around the world – if you are past due and want to pop that baby out, let me know. I’ll throw together a baby shower and you’ll most likely go into labor.
I went all Martha Stewart (I like to think I did anyway) for this shower. I’ll post recipes and DIY for favors and decorations this week.
Baby Shower – Thanks Arantha for taking pictures while I was getting things finished up!
I sprayed chalk board spray paint on Mason jars for people to drink out of and keep as a gift! So cute, cheap and beautiful!
I made flowers and put Blow Pops in them as gifts! This was actually from Martha Stewart’s website!
I made all the food for the shower. Recipes coming soon . . . .
