How do y'all celebrate birthdays?  (yes I did use y'all, I'm from Tennessee)  My girlfriends and I usually do dinner and pedicures.  Whenever we get together for dinner it's an 5 hour event.  We have to catch up with what's new in each other's lives, eat tons of food, and then vow to meet each other at the gym the next morning.  September happens to be the birth month for 2 of my closest friends, so in honor of them, this month's giveaway is Birthday Celebration Candy Bouquet.  To enter you can leave a message about your fondest (or not so great) birthday memories on the From Riley With Love Facebook Fan Page or blog.

Lavender and Yellow Baby Shower

My favorite cousin Nikki was pregnant, and instead of wanting to use traditional colors like pink for her baby shower, since she was having a girl, she decided that the decor for her baby shower should be the colors that she and her husband would use to decorate the nursery. (I was like, "Did she really give us directions on how to decorate her shower? Seriously?!?!?) You know how pregnant women can be, so of course my sister and I obliged her demands, I mean requests. I was put on decoration duty since I love that type thing. I googled lavender baby shower decorations, but came up with nothing that I liked. So being the DIY'er I am, I went to for some inspiration. I love Martha Stewart, her site has sensible and chic ideas for just about everything. The results: I made a lavendar and yellow diaper cake. Balloon flowers and garland made of baby pics of my cousin would be used as decor, and super cute daisy flower plates were for the chowing down. Everyone loved the decor! It was personalized for the Mom to Be, and she knew how much we loved her by all of the personal touches.
