A Girly Baby Shower

This past weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to celebrate the end and beginning of life. While we were awaiting my grandmother’s death, we were welcoming a new little girl in the world with the most adorably girly baby shower imaginable. My friends and I found out that Michelle was pregnant back when we had a girl’s weekend in October, and afterwards started planning the shower. This past weekend it came together beautifully!

The Food: Mmm we had so much delicious food! Cupcakes with butter-cream frosting, mini cupcakes with strawberry frosting, chicken salad in wonton wrappers, spinach artichoke dip, veggies and hummus, fruit salad, candy sprinkled around the house, and strawberry lemonade with striped straws.

The Game: We were only going to allow classy, make the mother-to-be feel good games, so we decided to let all of the guests leave notes on diapers for the new parents to read when they’re changing Reagan’s diaper in the upcoming months.

Music: Any song with baby in the lyrics, of course.

The Decorations: The shower was hosted at my parents’ house and Allison created some of the cutest decorations I’ve ever seen. Cute wreaths, pretty pom-poms, crape-paper garland around the table, felt pom-poms around the french doors, and the cutest “It’s a Girl!” sign as the backdrop on the back porch. Oh, and we can’t forget peonies! They were in full bloom in my mom’s garden and were scattered across the house.

I love this shot of Michelle with her mom who will be called “Mumsie” — isn’t that the cutest grandmother name? :)

    A very pretty shower! I loved your idea for writing on the diapers and had pinned it. I have linked to your post in my post because I made a diaper cake for my niece and used that idea for the diapers. Thanks for the inspiration! If you are interested, you can see it at my blog. I’ll be posting it in a couple days.
    Debbie :)
