These pom poms were super easy to make and looked great over the dessert bar. You can find a tutorial here: Casa Sugar
For desserts, we had a sweet potato pie & a pecan pie (from the Lee Brothers Southern Cookbook) plus a buttermilk pie (a family recipe) and red velvet cupcakes.
The slow cooker pulled pork samis went great with the mint julips (also from the Lee Brother's Southern Cookbook).
What's more southern than deviled eggs, pimento cheese spread and cucumber finger sandwiches? Yum!
For beverages, we had flavored lemonades (strawberry, ginger and mint) as well as delicious homeade mint julips.
The paper yellow striped paper straws and pink polka dot cupcake liners came from Sur La Table.
Party favors were homeade cookies tucked in these darling gift bags.
Kim put together a darling "onesie station" where we all made custom onesies for Heather to take home. The pre-cut fabric scraps (in lots of fun shapes and colors!) adhered easily with fabric glue. Baby Ruby is going to be one stylish kid. :)
With the left over fabric, Kim created this darling banner to hang on the mantle.
Here's the soon-to-be parents opening gifts. :)
