This Spring baby shower was styled by Sasha, one of our readers in Atlanta for her friend. We adore this whole set up. How great is the backdrop that she made?  We also love the cupcake flower pots with the DIY paper flower toppers. {scroll down for Sasha’s how to}. Other sweet treats on the dessert table included lemon cookies, lemon cake pops, tangy lemon bars, dry pineapple, mini chocolate cupcakes and key lime pie.
