Were having a baby!!!!!!!

Well not we as in me and hubbie,
but we as in our family,
My husbands cousin and his wife are having a baby.....And guess what its going to be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Yes a little girl!
I am soooo excited I cant stand it!!!!!!!!!!!
Finally a little girl that I can fuss all over and take my pink obsession out on!
Having 2 boys didnt give me any oppurtunity.
and the PUG is not exactly the kind of dog you dress up in rhinestone collars and pink sweaters though I did try!!

This is the pug going ppppfffftttthhhhhh!!! Leave me alone!!

This is the expecting couple my cousin Fernando and his beautiful wife Carolina....Their love story is a real fairy tale come true!

The picture below is my partner Lydia, we have been doing event decorating together and she is unbelievably talented!
Check out my website for more photos of events we have done together. www.mylulabelles.com

Lydia can do just about anything she also trains horses, would you believe this pretty young thing knows how to castrate a horse!! I still cant get over that!

The shower was a surprise....Carolina got very emotional.............
We had lots of pink everywhere, we tried to disquise the orange and gold walls in my Argentinians cousin's Italian resturaunt(There is alot of Italian influence in Argentina)We put bouquets of balloons all around the room to detract the eye.

The Cake table looked like a pink cloud!!
Reconize this blue dish?? It was one of the purchases that I made on my last antiquing trip that hasnt quite made it to the website yet!
Its a irradescent fenton I collect Fenton so im not sure if I want to part with this one. :p

We hand sorted bags of candies for these containers......
This was the party favor table................I had ordered these beautiful baby rattles from http://www.pinkrosepastries.com/

The are simply scrumptous!!!! I just love them!!! check her site out for lots of other beautiful goodies.

I filled them with candy but ended up having more people than expected so so I filled in with organza bags filled with personalized M&M's and the flower pens that I make.

I will post some better pictures of the rattles later but for now these will have to do because ive lost my camera battery....

We played this really fun game if you ever have a baby shower you should try it.

get all your scrap ribbons, old flowers, wrapping paper, tissue paper, paper plates etcc....

scissors,tape stapler put everything on a big table,

then tell everyone they have to design and make their own baby bonnet using the materials provided.

then they have to wear the bonnets and line up for a contest to see who wins!!!!

There were so many good ones we chose 3 winners..........
It was a really wonderful day and im so happy for my cousin and his wife.....
I cant wait to get my hands on the little bundle of joy. she is due any day now.
I told both of them to expect only pink fru fruie things from me......
and they told me that as far as I was concerned nothing else had ever entered their minds.............

Sandy, thank you for your condolences.

What a charming baby shower and such lovely decorations. Absolute perfection.

By the way, your pug is the funniest thing I've seen. He always has his tongue out like that?
