Tyler, who works in fashion in New York, requested a non-traditional, non-pastel, baby shower in early May.  My mother, her best friend Laura Ritchie  and I (her sister) were charged with coming up with ideas surrounding a ABC, NYC, bright/bold colored theme baby shower!

When guests arrived, they were greeted with decor lining the sidewalk and door.  A large crepe paper backdrop hung in the foyer with a welcome glass of Sangria.  The shower was also on Cinco de Mayo, so we had to have a touch of fiesta!  Flower arrangements were provided by Laura's aunt, who works with Holly Heider Chapple.  Guests were also asked to sign the vintage baby book, which I found on

Lunch was served buffet-style, with several New York themed dishes.  Guests were also offered mimosas and mexican sodas.  Bright colored lanterns and onsies served as decor inside.

Tyler has been craving all of her childhood favorite cereals during her pregnancy.  I made three flavors of cupcakes and decorated the buffet with an "I Heart Cereal" sign, maps of NYC napkins and a "Chinatown Coffee" station.  The three flavors of cupcakes were "Captain Colin Crunch" made with Peanut Butter Captain Crunch, "Coo-coo for Colin" made with Cocoa Puffs and "Yabba Dabba Delicious" made with Fruity Pebbles!

Guests took a quiz about how well they know Tyler and helped her open her gifts.  The favors as they left were smiley face cookies from Eat n Park restaurants, a favorite when our family lived in Pittsburgh, PA :)
