Garden Shower

My friend Dorothy needed some help throwing a garden themed baby shower in her backyard, and I was more than happy to lend a hand. The mom-to-be had gestational diabetes, which I was a little nervous about because my party centerpieces are usually the dessert buffet. Dorothy and I came up with a diabetic-friendly menu and found some sugar free chocolates and caramels for the dessert table, knowing the guest of honor would allow herself to indulge in a sweet treat or two. Enjoy the following behind the scenes photos of putting together this bright and colorful party.

Sweet teacups with silk flowers to hang from the balcony.

Oversized dragonflies get some bedazzling.
