The Violet Party

Welcome to the party!!!
After Violet's baptism last weekend we hosted a little "Violet themed" soirée at our house. It was a sweet, grand old time with all our loved ones present, and a wonderful celebration of our blessing that is Violet.

 {Check out this amazing post our friend Colleen did on the party, she is so sweet. I'm sad I didn't get a picture of the two of us!}

I wanted to share some of the pictures I did get of the party in honor of Miss. V.

Miss. V with her momma {moi}.
All the violet colored goodies.
Of course, Violet flavored mints. {Acquired taste required.}

Me & V. 
Violet glassware {World Market}.
Violet colored taffy {Sunflower Market}, chalkboard tags {$1/ea at Michael's!}
Yogurt covered pretzels. And purple violet Peeps!
Yellow cupcakes with buttercream {violet, of course} frosting.
French macarons. NOT from Ladurée, but my own failed attempt. 
Cake balls! AKA Cake Pops, sans stick.
Chicken salad on croissants in bakers bags from Etsy.
Peeps & pretzels, served in cupcake wrappers.
Ruffle cake, inspired by Martha. I had to try it, this was the perfect time. 
No party is complete without silver straws

I loved how all the shades of purple violet mixed together. 
That's my V-Pie!

These technically were "flops" but still tasted good. Nutella/marshmallow filling!
Chocolate cross pops.
Forgot to put those out until half way through the party...
Justin's family enjoying their treats.
Grandma {Mom} enjoying her treat.
Soapmaker/Grandma Erickson made the favors, violet scented soaps. 
Perfect for a baptism party!
Great Grandma Sander, Moriah, Violet, & Grandma Sander.
Ruffle cake: we love you, not just for your good looks but also what's on the inside.
Aunt Vesuvius with the Vi. 
Learning to use the new Nikon on some of the pretty treats...
After guests left, I had a lot of fun photographing these...
I call this one, The Lonely Cake Ball
Ruffle cake makes for a great subject.
Tempting, isn't it?
Who doesn't love a Violet cupcake? I love my Violet cupcake! All 10 lbs of her..

Most guests took home a plate of treats!
Love, Your Hostess
