Adventures in baby showers
this was such a fun baby shower for my friend Julie
I love how friends come together in this awesome kind of togertherness to honor another person.
my friend Julie is having baby #3
Baby #3 is baby girl #3 for them. Julie is ALL pink and girliness. It couldn't be more prefect for God to have blessed her with three girls.
Here is her baby shower for Baby Girl #2 we threw her a Sprinkle
We had a fun group of girls to throw her an essential's shower. Diapers......wipes.....gift cards......the essentials.
Julie is doing Logan's room in a Beatrix Potter theme so we went with that theme for her shower.
Here are some of the ideas that were pinned when we where thinking through shower ideas.
Our friend Jessica said that she would love to have it at her house and she pulled out all the pretties for this shower. it was so elegant and fun with china and tea and glasses.
all of the hostesses were so great to contribute in one way or another to the shower.
our friend Kelly made this beautiful banner with the baby's name on it.
cute little pots and books were displayed for decoration.
Jessica set out her tea set and made a fruit tea that was delicious
the food table was just lovely
Melissa made these delicious chocolate cupcakes in tiny mason jars topped with strawberries that looked like carrots. (i wish i had gotten a better picture of the strawberries)
they used clay pots, that Lindsay brought, as cake plates for items on the food table
Melissa also made these precious cake balls that looked like little bunny tails. she did such an amazing job.
Napkins that Jessica found, I don't know where, but she has her ways of making every occasion so beautiful and special
we had a ton of ideas for sweets but wanted to come up with something salty (there were carrot and ranch or course) then I remembered that Julie makes a yummy onion soufflé that she also enjoys and asked her for the recipe for the shower
the drink station with water, sweet tea and a beautiful and delicious punch that Lindsay made
cute little Beatrix Potter bunting banner
I saw on pinterest where you set out a book for the guests to sigh. I had this Beatrix Potter book that was tucked away in my son's closet. I don't think we had every used it so I brought it for the guest to sing so that Julie would always know who was there to celebrate with her.
I am kicking myself for not taking a picture of the two games that Blakeley printed out for us to do. one was for us to write a note to baby Logan with prompts about how long we have known her momma and wishes or blessing for her, and things that are fun about her family. it was so sweet and cute. she bound them and sent them home with Julie to read. the other was a baby shower version of scatagories. it was such a cute little thing to do and I really appreciated that she took that on. she also made these two pots for decor and the basket in the center of them were party favors that Jessica found for the guests. they were tiny glass bunnies that were candle holders.
this is the gift from the other hostess, Kelly, that was not able to make it to the shower. she gives pretty great gifts. I think she nailed it with this one. we missed you Kelly.
These Ladies were do wonderful and I am so happy that I was able to work with them to celebrate Julie and Baby Logan Kathryn
