We had our baby shower last week. It was wonderful! My sister asked me what theme I wanted for the shower and I didn't have a preference but I knew I wanted pumpkin pie, pecan pie and other autumn desserts. The shower ended up just being decorated like it was Thanksgiving. It was beautiful and so delicious.
I made the favors for the guests. Nothing new, it was pretty much the same favor I've given at many other parties. I already had some little boxes (from papermart.com) and I used one of my favorite chocolates: Lindt Truffles. Costco used to carry bags of the milk chocolate truffles all year long but in the last couple years or so, they only carry them just before and during the Christmas season. The bag they carry now has assorted truffles: milk, white, dark, peanut butter and 60% dark. Oh So Good!!
Here, my daughter and nephew were helping me fill the boxes. Three truffles per box.
I made labels with MS Publisher and instead of using ribbon, I printed out orange and white checkers and cut them in strips to use on the favors.
