Baby Shower: Red headed duckies


One of my colleagues is becoming a dad at the end of the month.  The office  is quite good about celebrating these special moments in a person’s life.  The theme of the baby shower was nautical (ducks, boats, and fish).

My friend the Baking Barrister made these amazing cookies and I thought I would share them. Our colleague has red hair so she included a patch a red hair on some of the ducks. I thought that was such a sweet and thoughtful touch and I thought I would share a few photos from the event here.

034 She also made a sailboat cake. The recipe is Martha Stewart.  Blue seven minute frosting over chocolate cake.


041So yummy! 

047 My pal made some streamers using Made’s Ruffled Streamer Tutorial.  All rolled up.



There was also a little rubber duckie corsage for mum-to-be 045

and of course a little fish bowl centrepiece.


and goldfish crackers, the fifth food group.


It was a sweet event for an excited couple. I enjoy posting about collaborative projects like this and how they come together.

Have a great day,



  1. A fun and whimsical little party - the little white girl cookies with the bow were adorable. I also liked the paper boat on the cake - sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.

  3. Oh this is so sweet! You and your friends (colleagues) sure know how to make a party!!
