A Project For
My family and friends threw me a Mary Poppins themed baby shower that started with my finding a perfect Mary Poppins cake on Pinterest. I designed the dessert table and my friend helped with the backdrop and got the kites and banner. It was the perfect shower, all that I could have asked for and a great way to celebrate our upcoming arrival of Haley :)
I was inspired by two different cakes I saw on Pinterest that were a Mary Poppins theme. I find that many times I plan a party I am inspired first by either a cake or invitations. Once I found the cake, I knew I wanted to have a Mary Poppins themed shower months ago!
My design style is very cohesive, I like to have everything flow together and follow the theme.

My favorite item was definitely the dessert table as a whole, but specifically the cake since that's what the shower was planned around as inspiration.
I LOVE Pinterest and Etsy, so helpful to find ideas, things you need but dont have the time or want to do and get some inspiration. Take the help from your family and friends. My mother in law made and provided the lunch and beverages, my sister in law and brother in law let us use their house and backyard from the party location.
