Last month I had the opportunity to co-host a baby shower for my good friend Krissi. She just had the cutest little boy last week and we were so excited to celebrate her upcoming arrival a few weeks before.
We went with a rubber ducky theme--I love rubber ducks and I had been eyeing the ducky cupcakes from What's New Cupcake for a couple years now with the itch to make them.
They were fun to make. Donut hole for the head and half of a marshmallow for the tail. My favorites are the ones with their bums up in the air.
I saw a cake with a similar ducky motif around the sides on Pinterest and wanted to try it out. None of my cricut cake cartridges had a ducky on it so I had to resort to a cookie cutter. It took a lot of searching to find a mini ducky cookie cutter small enough to be able to do this cake, and I finally found one on Etsy.
Did I mention she is having a boy--hence the one blue ducky :)
I saw a recipe on pinterest for this ducky bath drink--ginger ale, blue koolaid, grape juice, and pineapple sherbet. It froths up like bubbles in the bath, and tasted really yummy.
I got this idea for the picture from my friend Rachele who threw a ducky shower a couple of years ago. It says "D is for Duck" underneath the picture.
Here are a few other of our cute decorations:
Carrie, my co-host made some delicious cream puffs filled with chicken salad as well as some savory pretzel bites. They tasted so good.
After 2 girls, Krissi was excited to get some cute little boy clothes for baby #3. We are so glad that he made it here safely. And I have to admit that I am a little jealous that she had her baby last week--I have been just 2 weeks behind her this whole pregnancy, and am ready for my little one to come. 38 weeks today. Waiting, waiting, waiting...
