sweet as pie // baby shower

When my friend Jennie was pregnant with her 4th baby girl I knew she didn't "need" 
a lot of things for this sweet new addition.
However, our friends LOVE a reason to get together and shower our friends with love (and presents)
So, we decide a mellow night with a few close friends and family members 
would be perfect to celebrate this new baby. 

Jennie LOVES pie, so a "Sweet as Pie" theme was perfect. 
I kept things VERY simple (which for me can sometimes be harder than going crazy!). 
All the girls pitched in and brought food. We had a yummy salad for dinner and LOTS of pie for dessert. 
 The invitations were made from card-stock that I cut and folded. My friend Alaina sewed the fabric to the front and then I stamped "sweet as pie". Inside I glued a recipe card and Elisha hand wrote the party information. 
It was a great group project!
 The only decorations we had was an oval embroidery hoop with teal fabric and a bunting that said ...
"sweet as pie".
Many pies were made.
A lot of pie was eaten. 
Now you know why we had salad for dinner. HA! 
I made 2 pies, but didn't have nice pie dishes, 
so I simply covered the aluminum dishes I purchased from the Dollar Tree with fabric. 
Heart hand-held pies. 
As a little favor I made pie crust crackers. I got the recipe from Pillsbury and it only requires pie crust and sugar. I had teal and orange sugar, so they matched perfect! Jennie named their little girl Clover, so just for fun I made heart and clover shaped crackers because we love Clover. Sigh. 
We chatted, laughed, ate, and prayed, and as always enjoyed the amazing friendships we have.
