Pom Poms & Rocky Road

I thought I'd share quickly with you a couple more shots of stuff from our "We're about to have a baby and go into hibernation" party.

Because I was going with red (or deep strawberry) and lemon for the food theme...

I whipped up a few tissue paper pom poms in deep red, lemon, and white and then added some large round lanterns to the mix that I made the Mr. string up for me using fishing line.

I'm not sure why, but the red in the photos came out a whole lot brighter than it really is - and the yellow more, well, yellow. But then, the walls look a weird colour too. Maybe it was the time of day that I took the photos.

Also, as a "Thanks for coming" I wrapped up some large chunks of handmade rocky road - Ours has a bit of a surprising twist to it (I might let you in on the secret some time in the future).

I just used red and white dot (and plain red) muffin cases, clear cellophane, and some red with white dot ribbon. I HAD intended to make up thank you tags to go with them in colours sticking with the theme, but I just plain ran out of time!

Check out where I'm partying through my link party button.

Oh, and if you haven't already heard... 
Seaweed & Raine is turning 2 tomorrow!!! 
Come back and check out the deets for our first Giveaway.


  1. Thank you for your very nice comment on my post (Flower Dress at Howling at the Moon). You asked me about the patterns. A tutorial of the crochet flowers you can find at my blog. The pattern of the dress isn't really a pattern. I just made it up while working on it. The skirt is a full circle and the front upper side of the dress is just as it looks like in the pictures. The back is a straight strip of fabric. The ribbons are tied together at the back of the neck. The flowers I applied before I sewed the upper side on the skirt of the dress.

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Liz
