BABY SHOWER SNIPPETS

I had my first baby shower the other week put on by my baby sister and my best friend since childhood. Yay!! We spent the past few weeks coming up with ideas for decorations, games and the food. My sister is amazing when it comes to cooking and baking so I let her have free reign for the brunch. We had parfaits (yum!), a bagel bar, mini brunch frittatas, parmesan hash brown cups, pink lemonade, cucumber/lemon water, and homemade ice cream sandwiches from scratch. My mouths watering just thinking about it all. Why I didn't think to take pictures of it, the world may never know.

Instead of a "theme", we opted for a color scheme instead. Gold, pinks and creams. I had so much fun going through baby pictures of me and Eric (seriously, his big puppy dog eyes kill me every time!) and putting them in thrifted gold frames. My sister went to thrift stores and found cute animal figurines that she spray painted gold. And to keep with the dainty theme, we chose babies breath and put them all in mason jars and tied pink ribbon around the tops along side jasmine candles. My amazing mother-in-law also made cute tassels that we hung around the downstairs.

I'm not a big game person when it comes to baby or bridal showers so we kept them light hearted and fun. We played "Guess which babe" where both our parents wrote down 10 baby facts about us and guests had to guess which fact was about who. We also had "Wishes for babe" where everyone wrote down their wishes for our future baby girl. I think my favorite was my little niece Makenna who wrote that she hopes our baby will be "a nice dinosaur". Too cute! And to keep guests entertained we had a little crafts table where they had the opportunity to paint little wooden blocks that would go into the baby nursery.

To sign in, we had everyone write their names and little messages to the babe in Dr. Seuss's "ABC" book. And before guests left we had a gold backdrop to take polaroid pictures in front of. I plan to put all of these instax pictures in baby girls baby book so she knows all the amazing women who came out to celebrate her!

I was having too much fun during the shower that I didn't get around to taking pictures, but here are some snippets of the aftermath. So much love to all my friends who were able to make it! Love you all!!!!

^^ My girl, Gavi, flew in from Los Angeles just for my baby shower. It meant so much to me that she was there! When everyone left, Eric took this picture of us. It pretty much sums up our relationship to a T. ^^

  7. Love the choice of colour scheme instead of actual theme! I'm planning on doing the same with my future (far, far away future) children :) That photo of you and your friend is lovely! Frameable. For sure. Love the dress too. So happy for you! :)
