There is something deep within me that LOVES to throw a good party. Whether it be my sister or husbands 30th birthday party, a New Years Eve party, or a spooky Halloween party (not that I've actually thrown a Halloween party, much less a spooky one) But there is one party that tops them all, and that is......
A baby shower
I don't know what it is, but I just love everything about baby showers. The cheesy games, the super cute decorations. I love it all. I've only thrown 3 showers in my life so far, but I know there will be many more to come. I would like to share some photos of these happy occasions.
Now this is a photo from the very first shower I hosted. It was a flower theme, and I loved finding everything flower that I could. And notice how the plastic forks are decorated with curled ribbon. I pay attention to details folks. Now I know you don't know these women, but the one on the right is my bosom buddy through and through. But I'd like you to pay attention to the little party favors in the background. Those are little chocolates that I made and had them in little flower pots. And of course, the cake. This was one of the first I ever decorated. I thought it was pretty spiffy. Now for baby shower #2. I threw this one for the above mentioned bosom buddy, Maegan. She loves pink, so the theme was pink. Plus, she was having a sweet baby girl. Instead of cake, I made cinnamon roll party favors with pink frosting. DELISH! This is where the magic happened. In my old apartment in Rexburg. Look how tiny it is! This shower posed it's challenges, in that, the new mom did NOT like baby shower games. So it took some creativity to make it fun, but I think I pulled it off. (Do you love how I'm just singing my praises here??) And now to my most recent baby shower. This was for one of my book club friends. Remember, the ones that are ALL pregnant. Here we are lined up in order of due date. There is one girl missing from this picture. Isn't it cute though? I love everyone of these women! Oh, and by-the-way...I AM NOT PREGNANT!
This is the "cake" I made for the party. It was a pea in a pod theme, so these cupcakes have little candy pea pods on them. They were really cute. And also very delicious!
It was another successful baby shower, especially since all these women are pregnant with their first babies and we all just love to chat about all the many baby related things there are to talk about.
There's nothing like a baby shower to keep my spirits high!
