So Thursday we had a little baby shower themed potluck at work for Karlie. It was pretty low key, but I still wanted to decorate a little bit! I put up a sign up sheet requesting decorations and also food items. All in all I think it turned out pretty well!
Sharon made the garland, which turned out super cute. I recycled the topiaries from the baby shower I did for Kristin, just repainted them and different colored poms.
Here's an up close of one of the topiaries. Honestly they are super easy! Jessica brought the tootsie pops, I had put them on the list but really didn't expect anyone to bring them! I think they just make the centerpieces more fun, and then everyone gets to take a yummy treat with them.
Savannah made these cupcakes - from scratch! I'm super impressed. Inside each of them was a fun treat - either a caramel or andes mint! I had made the cupcake toppers a couple weeks ago. Everything coordinated so well, the food was fabulous and Karlie got some great gifts! Vikkie made the most amazing spinach artichoke dip! I have never actually tried spinach artichoke dip because I detest mayonnaise and can't choke it down. I've tried. It doesn't work. Anyways, Vikkie made a special variation of the dip without mayo, she ommitted the mayo and added more cream cheese - and it was DE-licious!
In other news, Jan had a yard sale at her house Friday and Saturday and I helped out. Friday was fa-reezing cold! And windy. I didn't dress properly for it because in the morning it was warm and sunny so I was wearing capris and flip flops - whoops! Yesterday was overcast mostly but definitely warmer. Guess who got sunburned. ugh. Just call me "rudolph" My nose is bright red! Seriously.
I didn't take much to sell, just a few books, plates and some fabric. The fabric all sold, one plate and 2 books. LOL at least I wasn't counting on making my millions at that sale! Everyone else had brought a TON of stuff and sold a good bit, so all in all I'd call it a success. Surpisingly Friday was the busiest day!
