My Little Cupcake :: Wrapping up the Baby Shower!

by | Jun 24, 2011 | Baby Showers, Giveaway | 6 comments

First of all I want to THANK YOU ALL for participating in this Virtual Baby Shower for Charlotte and her little Cupcake! I had so much fun hosting it here at Shower of Roses, and have been so inspired by everyone’s kindness and generosity.   In addition to all the prayers and advice, not only did I have enough money to order the crib by the end of the 2nd day of the Shower, all together we have an extra $210.00 to send to help cover any other nursery and baby supplies Charlotte still needs as they prepare to welcome their little blessing!

Yesterday afternoon I made the little card pictured above…  It’s hard to see in the picture, but the embossing reads “Bundle of Joy.”   On the inside it says “Congratulations on your new little cupcake!”  I signed it with the names/blogs of all the women that contributed towards the crib, and thought I would post a picture so you could all see how it looks.   Thank you all again!

Now for the rest of the prizes!! 

I am so glad that I decided to have Sunshine and Shortcake choose the winner of the Cupcake Decorating Contest!  I don’t know how I would have ever been able to choose, they were all SO CUTE!

Here is what the girls had to say:

We thought all of the cupcakes were really cute! Miss Margaret’s redecorated cupcakes were very creative. Miss Barbara’s looked very fancy and exquisite. We loved Miss Amy’s and Miss Kelly’s bird themed cupcakes since our little sister’s room has lots of birds in it. We thought Miss Lorie’s cupcakes were clever the way she turned a vanilla wafer into a baby and baby stroller. We called it a “Candy Pram”!  The watermelon cupcakes look really delicious. Maybe mom will let us make some soon! Miss Jessica’s really looked like real baby rattles! But we choose Miss Jamie Jo’s duckie cupcakes as our favorite. We thought they were sooooo cute and even looked all fuzzy just like little duckies (and babies) should! Thank you all for helping us celebrate our new little sister!

    I forgot, Jessica, that card is beautiful–amazing how you matched her baby room theme and cupcake theme in one card, it turned out wonderful, what a beautiful keepsake for Charlotte!

  5. Baby Gift List

    Food items for the baby shower are one of the most important features of the baby shower. When guests arrive at a baby shower they are expecting food that includes desserts, appetizers and finger food for baby shower.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
