Sailboat Party

For the sailboat party, we used the handmade paper sailboats as center pieces (and party favors).
The punch was like this one except that we floated plastic sailboats in it instead of duckies.
And...the table spread! This was an evening party, so we just served fruit, veggies, nuts, and cupcakes. We had tons left over, so I sent cupcakes home with some of the guests.
The expectant mother's pile of gifts! Notice the wooden sailboats weighting down the table cloth. It was pretty windy, and I'll have to remember this trick. A little hot glue and we had useful decoration that kept the table cloth from flying around.

And my first try at a diaper cake. Sorry about the glare! I would've liked it better with white diapers (the Baby's R Us brand has a lot of green on them) but I covered most of the diapers with ribbons and the result was very festive.
May this new momma sail into parenthood with grace and love!
