Nursery Rhyme Baby Shower

For those of you who don't know, my husband and I had an adorable baby boy, named Jackson Eric,  6 weeks ago. We are so in love with this little guy! Even though we've had many sleepless nights, we are having so much fun taking care of him.
 A couple of months before little Jackson arrived, my sister and husband's aunts threw me an AMAZING baby shower. The theme of Jackson's nursery is Nursery Rhymes, so they used that as the theme for the shower. I love the theme so much, that I begged for them to let me make the dessert table! All of the food items were made to match a nursery rhyme...so cute!! They also had pictures and ceramic figurines of nursery rhymes all over the room.  Here are the pictures!!
