Diaper Cakes!

I love using a diaper cake as a centerpiece for a baby shower.  Not only are they decorative but so useful for the parents to be.  Basically the "cake" consists of diapers wrapped in ribbon.  It can be left this way or decorated with useful baby items.  I always like to add a plush animal as a topper - it's a whimsical way to finish off the cake.  Here are some examples of cakes I have made.  In another post I will detail how I make them.

Barbie's Beauty Salon

As I am approaching my daughter Bridget's 7th birthday I can't help but think back to her 6th birthday party.  Unlike her mommy this little girl loves barbies and came up with the idea for a "Barbie's Beauty Salon" theme.  It could not have been more pink or more fun.  I loved watching the girls squeal while getting chocolate facials and admire themselves in the mirror after having all of the treatments.  The birthday girl matched the party decor with a pink cast, almost as bright as her smile that day.
