what could be cuter for a baby boy shower than chevron stripes and polkadot ties...
(ties were made from ribbon and craft wire)
feathering/chevron... close enough for me.
this was the invitation/inspiration and the chocolate "stash" makes for a perfect cupcake topper.
I had to make all these things the night before, so I didn't get pictures of the cupcakes the day of the party, but you get the idea!
the cupcakes are one of my favorites...
