I've been woefully delinquent in posting pictures from the shower I hosted for my friend Alissa in October. She actually had her baby on Thursday (Welcome to the World Baby X (that's his actual initial)!), so now seems like as good a time as any.
I admit that I freaked out a little bit when I realized that there would be 30 guests, but it all worked out flawlessly. I won't bore you with all of the details, but here are some of the highlights. As you can see, a good time was had by all!
Here's the guest of honor and friends.
The favors. Huge thanks to Melissa at Truly Scrumptious Cookies for doing a fantastic job matching the favors. They looked truly amazing--and tasted truly scrumptious.
The cake, which was carrot cake with candy on top and on the sides. (I also made two additional sheet cakes since the round cake wasn't going to serve 30 people.) The cake was Southern Living's Best Carrot Cake. It really was the best--people went back for seconds.
