When the parents-to-be are super cool music lovers {the Papa-to-be is a deejay to boot} and the future Auntie is an extremely talented photographer {Lauren Glase Photography} it only makes sense that the baby shower is no other than C-O-O-L. There is so much to love about this rock star event that we'll just have to start with the invites...which came addressed in a diaper {genius}, and enough can't be said about the turntable cake .} and the bathroom sign might be the most creative & equally as amusing...ever. Enjoy this rock star event today and tomorrow we'll introduce you to Ryder & check out his most excellent nursery.

Cupcake toppers are a great way to personalize everyone's favorite snack. Not only are they adorable but they're super easy to make.


1. You will need: tape, adhesive of your choice, lollipop stick, ribbon, and any paper shapes that you want to use. A scalloped punch, a smaller circle punch, and a number “1″ punch is used above.
2. Using adhesive, stick the “1″ onto the small circle and then stick those onto the scalloped circle.
3. With a small piece of tape tape a lollipop stick to the back of the scalloped circle.
4. Tie a ribbon on the bottom. 

A banner is the unofficial birthday party must and here's a great way to custom make one to fit your party's theme.


1. Cut out circles and letters, about 3 or 4 inches.
2. Choose your ribbon color
3. Using adhesive, stick the letter to the circle
4. Hole punch two holes to the top of the circle to thread ribbon
5. Thread the ribbon through the top, leaving enough ribbon on each side to hang

The cups are mason jars with printed tags I designed using a template from http://ohsnapboutique.com/  that I changed up from a 3x3 accordian booklet to use for my invitation and everything else.Thank you gift is a frappacino jar, I spray painted the cap and put different kinds of candy in it for the kids to take home.Cookies are from The Cookie Jar and I had her design the cookies around the party. One cookie was a custom cookie cuter made by her to match the invitation, other cookie had flowers to go with the flower theme and one cookie had an "a" to match my smash cake.We decorated the food table and eating tables with LOTS of flowers. I also made all the cup cake toppers from the same design, printed and punched out with scalloped punch. The cupcakes are all from Gigi's Cupcakes in Marietta Ga.
