Today’s featured party is a lovely “Welcome to the World” theme baby shower that was styled by Cassie of Fancy Frills Style Studio. Cassie says, “I had the privilege of hosting a baby shower for my friend who is expecting a girl. My friend has several globes throughout her house so when I thought of this theme I knew it was perfect for her! I used maps and globes as the base for the decor, with the colors usually found on maps (green, aqua, coral, and yellow). I served appetizer finger foods including mini caprese salads, raspberry chocolate banana bites, and strawberry brie crostinis.”

Cassie says, “I modge podged the M’s with maps, made all the banners, etc. I’m a total DIY gal!”

Cassie says, “The shower was mid afternoon so I wanted an array of nice finger appetizer type foods. These are the Strawberry Brie Crostinis.”

Each guest received a small travel journal inside a cellophane bag. The tag is punched from a map and has a monogram of the baby’s name.

    So often appetizers do not look appealing or seem impossible to eat. I love that your appetizers look like something you can fit in your mouth (and not end up wearing) and also look DELICIOUS to eat-all of them!

      Hi Regina! I feel the same way about Cassie's appetizers as you do - they are fantastic! I think it's really hard to pull off appetizers that look tasty and are just the right portion size, but Cassie really did these perfectly! : )

    Hi! I'm planning my sister-in-laws around the world baby shower and love the game you played with the different languages of baby. If you still have the template, could you email it to me as well as the answer key? Thanks so much!
