Made It a Surprise!

 There's been quite a bit of covert crafting going on these past few weeks. Secrets are always so hard to keep but keep it we did.....until today. Today we finally got to let the cat out of the bag.
At least that's what we said to our unsuspecting neighbor as she came through the door to help me "frost a cake."
 Little did she know the cake had already been completed by some other hands and was simply waiting for the celebration to begin. The popping belly on the cake was a huge hit and fit in so well with all the popcorn, popovers, cake pops, soda pop and such served up in honor of her quickly approaching due date.

(Did anyone spy my little quilt? I had first intended to whip up a table runner for the party but then thought to be a bit more practical and have it be able to function as a diaper changing pad down the road.)
More than a few creative minds and hands were the driving force behind today's shindig. Aside from the fun foods, there were silly games, amazing decorations, balloons (thanks Jim!) and blinged out favors. My little tidbits included some polka dotted pins for the gift clothesline and paper flowers for the garland streamers (see one way back there?) 

Overall, I do believe a good time was had by all. Many thanks to all the party guests, my co-conspirators, and of course our dear neighbor who was willing to drag her oh so pregnant body over to help me "frost that cake!"


  1. Wonderful - she must have felt so special! What a lot of great ideas!

  2. That was such a lovely thing to do. Fun and memories made by all. And your little quilt looked wonderful.

  3. Lots of minds and hands joined together in the organization of the party...and to be honest I think we all had just as much fun with the prep work as we did during the actual event!!!
