Sandra SAYS:

A little over the top for my taste, but I still love it. The pink and gold just burst together. WIsh I was daring enough to do something that crazy!

jenn s. SAYS:

Thanks, Sandra! And this was definitely the most over the top I’ve gone for a baby shower too so I do feel you on that one… there were a few reasons we went all out though, and I’m happy with how it came together in the end. There was definitely spray painting and glittering going on until the wee hours of the morning before though! ;)

Sandra SAYS:

Nice to know that some other people are just as last minute as I am sometimes ;-)

Erin SAYS:

I REALLY want to use this theme for my daughter’s 1st birthday. When ordering the printables, can you customize just the things that say baby shower to birthday party?

Susan SAYS:

I Love this party!!! It’s so much fun and the colors all pop!! Where did you find, or can you provide details to make the great, white sawhorse style cake table?

June 13, 2013 at 11:08 am

jenn s. SAYS:

Hi Susan –
I’m so glad you love the table… I seriously use it ALL the time and it’s from… IKEA! Which means it was totally affordable too :) Online it’s one piece, but in the store the legs and tops come separately so you can buy different colors/finished and mix and match. Here’s the link: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S99001982/
