Dragon Baby Shower

Today, the gals from work and I threw a baby shower for our dear friend and co-worker, Katie.

This is me (in red) with the glowing mom to be.

The theme was dragons and the colors were red, white and black to coordinate with the nursery. Everyone brought food to share, and it was all so tasty! Yum!

I made the cake and the sugar cookie dragons. The cake was chocolate with a whip cream and Oreo filling.

Image

The dragons were based on a sketch I made. The legs on the babies were inspired by this post on Haniela’s Cookie Blog.

My friend Val made this awesome dragon bread! We didn’t want to eat it, but when we finally tore in, it was delicious!

Since we all work at an art centre, we had to do something crafty. So we tie dyed baby onesies!

These are some of the ones we made today.

This is Candace with her creation. Beautiful!

For the gift, I wanted to make something special, that would fit with the theme and the nursery. It HAD to have a dragon! I made this little flying dragon mobile. The dragon is made from my own pattern, and has jointed legs. When the baby is old enough, the dragon can be detached and used as a toy. The stars are painted, glittered and glow in the dark.
