QB’s Aqeeqah ( celebration on a birth of a child in the family) QB is my fourth grandchild MashaAllah. He was no less special than other three. We themed his celebration Welcome To The World. QB’s father loves maps and globes so we thought it will be good theme for QB and his Baba.Collecting all these maps and globes were bit a challenge but family of crafters and Amazon Prime possibilities are unlimited. Maps on the background are from a fabric store Yes fabric store 😇 we used them as table runners as well. Oh Did I mentioned where did this event took place? The most beloved place ADAMS All Dulles Area Muslim Society) in its newly build community center
Beside all the crafts fpr the event. Desert table was the center of attraction to the guests. The main cake was made by QB's Lala thats a QB version of Khala meaning sister of his mom. Beside Lala's skills as an Aerospace engineer she also runs a cake business. To place an order email email@example.com or follow her on Instagram #sweetsujood. Globe cake pops and cookies were made by a friend. Oyester cookies and cupcakes were made by QB's mom another baker of our family. She is always under the baking critique by her siblings but was also the one who gets all the sweet craving requests.

Party Favors As being all of us Sunday School teachers creating a children crafts is piece of cake for us. Turning these Styrofoam balls from Michaels into globes was one of then easiest but the adorable craft. this is how we set up. i wish i have a tutorial clip Any how Things you need Styrofoam balls Elmers Glue Small cups Form brushes Blue and green tissue papers or streamer paper ( The reason for using the streamer paper was that we already have those at home but they end up a better choice because they were thicker and easy for tiny hands to hold and paste)
Here is our extra tutorial on the party favors we made for the baby shower- handmade natural honey soap. I ordered a honeycomb mold and made the soap out of honey. I let the mixture sit in the mold overnight to harden into a soap bar consistency. We also got gift tags and stamped a bee on there along with a label that said: "For a Bee-utiful Friend 100% Natural and Handmade Honey Soap Baby B 2018"
Back in September my two elder daughters and I organized a baby shower for my third daughter's first baby, and my fourth grand baby! The theme had to do with honey bees. We had so much fun planning this with several DIY projects.
We setup camp in my sun room, and started off by placing quilting hoops wrapped in artificial ivy on each window. For the table setting, I laid green tule down the middle as a table runner and placed a variety of honey spreads on the table. Along with that, we wrapped large candles in the artifical ivy to decorate the tables.
