Sweet bird ~

Today was a day of shopping and gathering. Fresh ingredients to make the cupcakes ~ spinach dip and other things. A precious outfit for Clara for me to give Emily at her other shower that her family is giving her Feb. 14th. Also, I found a teddy bear that has the sound of the mother's heartbeat, so I had to get it as well.

I've been trying to think of a way to display the cupcakes creatively without buying one of those cupcake stand/holder things. Well, believe it or not, I don't have a cake plate (but have sold a blue million of them at the antique store!) but found one at W-mart with a dome for only 9.97!! Then I purchased a parfait glass and another glass plate, each only 1.50 or so. I will turn the glass upside down onto the cake plate and place the smaller plate over top to have a two tiered glass display. It won't hold all of the cupcakes but at least I will have a pretty display that all of the items can be reused after the party! Here are a few found images of what I purchased:

I hope that you are having a wonderful week!! Things should calm down here a bit after this weekend ~ Thank you so much for sweet comments!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday dear friends!
xxoo, Dawn

wonderful Dawn, Thank you for the images. I have been wanting to do something with bird images for my studio because Daddy loved birds so. A little bit of him in there. Thank you for sharing those.
I can not believe you didn't have a cake plate. I am honored enough to have my Grandmothers. Your double tier stand will be wonderful. I can't wait to see all the decorations.
Have fun.

I think it will come out the 'most- stunning- ever' baby shower, Dawn! The glass things are just perfect, and also all you've done with love!
Thanks for such precious images, I am going to use them one of these days...

Hi Dawn,

The bird and egg images are wonderful. Thanks for sharing. I have been visiting your blog and feeling your joy and excitement about the baby shower and of course, the baby coming. I wish you and your family great happiness during this time! Enjoy.

Thanks for the images!! I was really lucky to find a cupcake holder on sale for my cupcakes!!! They are expensive! WOW, I could not believe it! Love your idea, sounds cute! I know your shower is going to be awesome and fun is going to be had by everyone!

Creations from my heart said...

Oh my gosh Dawn...Creative minds think alike. First the thing with us both thinking about the decorated cupcakes and now guess what I just made a few days ago....a tiered plate set. I had posted my finds at the resale shop last week and I had bought some china plates and glassware to make a tiered set. I'm going to email you a photo of what I did. Yours will look wonderful. I have began thinking about my son's graduation party this summer and I am going to do the decorated cupcakes and make some type of stand. I want to try and make a large one. Just need to figure out how to do it!
Can't wait to see everything from Sunday. Remember LOTS of photos.

I know you are so excited and I am excited for you! If you need another glass plate, I recently (yesterday) figured out that my glass plate inside the microwave was excellent (and not too heavy) to serve as a cake platter. I kept the one from my old microwave...not knowing at the time exactly what I was going to do with it. Just another last minute hint...have fun with the shower! love ya, melissa

Good morning Dawn.

Thanks for the great pics to use.

Cake plate idea is a great one, and I think i have all the 'fixins'.

So many people finding me through your blog, so having great sign ups for the giveaway, and meeting a lot of new friends. Thanks! =0)

Blessings on your day, and your big day coming soon! I know it will all be just wonderful!

Love the little bird image! I need a new cake stand. I had one that was a wedding gift to my mother and father but age, use, and years were not kind to it. The surface glaze cracked and lifted and began to flake off. It met its doom when a friend accidentally dropped it. I like the glass one with the dome that you chose. Have a wonderful gathering!

That's a great idea! I've seen glasses turned upside down like that before, but I never think to do it myself. The shower is going to be so wonderful! I can't wait to see photos from it! ~Lori

Hello Dawn,
Lovely pictures to share with us thank you, I am staying here for a while looking through your amazing blog xxx

Deborah@ The Painted Nest said...

Dawn, Love the little bird, but you knew I would! You can also take your cake stand turn it upside down and put the lid inside the hole on the bottom and then you have a punch bowl! Just add flowers around the base, it's very pretty that way. Just another idea for your cake stand. The shower is going to be beautiful!!!! Have a wonderful time!!! Blessings, Deborah

Beautiful images Dawn! As usual!

Love the glass cake stand with the dome!

Viv (VivLyn) said...

Thank you for the adorable pictures and I know your cupcakes will look lovely on your plate concoction! A lovely covered cake plate for the money!

Jane said...

Dawn, everything you're doing for the baby shower is just simply wonderful - beautiful, clever - you are truly amazing! Thans for sharing all your ideas, recipes, hints, etc. At a baby shower last fall at church, we put tea lights in baby food jars (clean!) with a bit of lacy paper & ribbon around - cute & economical for our budget.

I'm sure the shower will be a wonderful success, providing lovely, lasting memories for your whole family. Be sure to get lots of pix & save some bits'n' pieces for Clara's baby book or scrapbook.

Jane, a faithful reader but not so good at posting comments

Mary said...

Thank you for the bird are so sweet to share with all of us.
You are so creative!! I can't wait to see what else you come up with for the shower.

Marilyn Miller said...

What an exciting time for you and your family. I can't wait to see pictures of the shower, but more importantly pictures of baby Clara. I can dream that someday I might have a little grandchild to love.

Sharon said...

Simply put, "Clara will be one lucky Grandchid". Also thanks for the images. Sharon

I am just moved by the little bird photo and the poem. Salute to the idea of combining them up. Yes this week is wonderful to us - enjoying Bengali New Year's Day.
