So we thought it was fitting to throw her a Peas in a Pod baby shower. Here are a few of the details

Invitations: The invitations were simple. White cardstock with a simple oval in green. At the top, I used a cute triplet clip art featuring 2 boys and a girl (which she was having). I always want a bit of texture on an invite. It must have some type of 3-D something, ya know? For these, I made leaves out of green felt and "vine" out of green floral wire. Wrap the wire around a pencil to curl it and glue it all down with a strong, thick adhesive.
The introduction rhyme was:
Three bundles of joy
Three babies from heaven
One girl and two boys!
The centerpiece of the gift table was a large pea pod. I made this out of 3 green plastic children's balls
I found at the dollar store. (You'd never know the other side of those balls had Pooh on them!)
I wrapped felt around them to form the pod and closed the pod with hot glue. The pod sat on a large petunia arrangement. In the original concept, the pea pod was supposed to stick out of the petunias on a hidden stick. The balance of it never quite worked out, so we went with just lying in on top. The contrast was still striking.
It's funny looking back on these cupcakes because these were a few years BEFORE the now popular cupcake toppers came on the scene. Needless to say, they were a huge hit then, but now, they are pretty common.
I apologize in advance for the blurriness of this photo. I made several of these table runners. Each were green and had a peapod embellishment I made out of felt and vine. The "peas" were buttons.
As usual, I made the crunch and munch cones. Always do! They are always a hit! These featured the peapod clipart and a peapod on the flower pot.
The famous Martha Stewart poms were hung above the gift table. Here you can see the table before gifts, with the centerpiece, runner and poms. You can also see the diaper peapod in the background on the mantel.
I made 3 circles of diapers and wrapped them in felt to create the pod. Tied the ends off with ribbon and laid it on some fresh ivy to create the vine effect.
We really lucked out! Walmart happened to be selling these super cute peapod onesies so we worked those into the decor!
