"Brand New Car" Baby Shower

My cousin and his wife are having a baby! I knew when I got involved in planning the baby shower that it had to have a car theme! Baby W's room has a car theme, his daddy is a mechanic, and last but not least, they're last name is Karrer (pronounced: car)!

 Last night was the big party, to welcome a "Brand New Karrer" into the family. Everything went well and Baby W danced in his Mommy's belly over all the excitement. I took lots of pictures, so enjoy!

The dessert table set up was my main priority. We had jars with candy, and lots of other sweets! The car fabric tablecloth is a great Alexander Henry print from one of my favorite etsy sellers. It really added a lot to the orange, blue, and yellow accent colors.

I envisioned little milk and water bottles to go with the orange and blue paper party straws, and it turned out really cute. Luckily I had the blue tub from my nephew's 4th birthday party. The "W" letter came from Hobby Lobby and the Goku car was from ebay.

These candy jars were also from my nephew's 4th birthday, but the Chevron candy bags (and straws) were a sweet find from etsy.

 I made cake pops and candy coated pretzels, which are always winners at parties.

 The wonderfully cute cake was created by Melissa from Louisvillicious Cakes and Desserts, LLC.

It's dark in the photo, but the tissue paper puffs made it to the party!

I had a photo session with my cousin and his wife a week before the baby shower, so I was able to string some photos and display them around as decorations. I also framed some of my favorites for them to keep.

Isn't the mom-to-be just adorable?!

It all came together so cute, Liz! I love how you individually wrapped the cake pops. Good idea!

Best wishes for the parents to be!
