Baby Shower: Owls & Books, Part IV

And the final baby shower photos...

I was inspired by How Does She's Napkin Dress.  To continue the owl motif, I made little stickers to dress up the cups.


The menu included spice cake cupcakes with book cupcake toppers, chocolate fudge owl cupcakes (inspired by Hello Cupcake), red velvet cakeballs (inspired by Bakerella) as well as the more savory antipasti platter, three-quarter dip, and bruschetta.


To see the other ideas, check out the invitations, the games, and the decorations.

Check back tomorrow for free printables.

i have to know, what is three quarter dip?

CJ {Pink Tea} said...

I think it is also called French Quarter Dip. It is cream cheese, minced onion, and minced garlic. It is spread out and covered with a brown sugar, butter, worcestershire, mustard, and pecan mixture. Just serve with crackers.

I was first introduced to it by a friend's mother, and I absolutely love it.

I have to know did you make the book cupcake toppers or buy them? If bought from where? they are AMAZING!

CJ {Pink Tea} said...

Thank you so much for the compliment. I made them just using images from books and MS Word.

Hi CJ, Ms. Pink Tea! I, too, love the cupcake toppers. I see that you made them on MS Word. Do you have the document saved that you would be willing to share? Or perhaps just a few tips to share? Thanks!
