New Beginning

After many months of being a loyal blog reader to some of my favorite blogs, I am finally starting my own!  Thanks to a little push from my husband, Sweet Metel Moments is born!  I thought it would be a great idea for my first post to be about the celebration of a new life.  Last month I had the honor of throwing a baby shower for my wonderful brother, Ish, and my beautiful sister-in-law, Beatriz.  With the help from my lovely sister, mom, and hubby, I think everything went perfectly!  Here are some pictures.

I want to give credit to my favorite blogs out there who helped inspire me in creating this baby shower. 

The overall theme of "Sweet Dreams" came from a bedtime-themed birthday party featured on Hostess with the Mostess.  I especially loved her dessert labels and was thrilled when I found the same moon and star paper punch on clearance at Michaels, so of course I had to use it for my labels!  There are so many pretty parties to look at on that site and I just drool at the creativity!  

I got the tutorial on how to make the Oreo Cookie Pop Favors and Oreo Cookie Pop Holder from the How Does She gals, who always have such great ideas and tutorials!  

And my party hero and idol, Kim from TomKat Studio, inspired me on the overall look and on the cupcake toppers and various paper decor throughout the party.  She is amazing and in reading her blogs she has inspired me to start my own blog and see what I can do with some of my favorite hobbies.
