I’m so excited to share my beautiful baby shower with you! I feel so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family around me that truly did “shower” us with the cutest gifts for our baby boy. A big special thanks goes to my mum though who happens to throw the best parties and really went above and beyond to make all my pinterest plans come true!
Our shower was themed “Welcome to the World” and dotted with vintage maps, globes, and tiny suitcases.
A suitcase full of favors…
Those are tea tins and infusers with “A Baby is Brewing” labels.
The food was set up inside but the party took place in my Mum & Dad’s yard under a lovely white tent surrounded by their magnolia tree. It was a gorgeous late summer day. Perfect for sipping lemonade and non-alcoholic sangria. Don’t worry, there was plenty of wine on hand for those not currently with child.
We chose three baby games with some surprising winners! My cousin Isabel guessed within 100 M&Ms of what was in this over-sized baby bottle. And I was shocked that it wasn’t the new mommies but my college-age cousin who ran away with the Price Is Right game. Who knew Aveeno Baby products were so darned expensive but a package of organic baby wipes barely cracked $5?
And leave it to my girls- cousin Maria and Made of Honor Jamie to guess the circumference of my bump almost perfectly! Here I am measuring their piece of yarn guess during our B is for Belly game.
And oh the gifts! I know this part can drag on at showers but everything was so freakin’ cute I hope we kept the guests entertained.
There was plenty of oohing and aahing but this homemade quilt from my cousin Maria brought me to happy tears! It’s so beautiful and special. I know our little man will be crawling and cooing all over this! Thank you Maria!
Nephew Zeke really helped Auntie and Uncle out with the tough bows. He’s going to be a fantastic big cousin!
And in the end, it was all about the cupcakes… er… the people!
The people were my favorite part… honest… with cupcakes a close second. Thanks again ladies!
