Good morning! Yesterday, we had the pleasure of hosting a dear friend’s baby shower at our apartment. As you may remember, there’s a group of us (including our moms) who have been friends since, well, forever- we call ourselves the Shapleigh Girls. Sara is expecting a little baby boy in just 5 weeks and since we live with her sister and we have a big enough apartment to host a party, we decided to throw her a shower here. I love that we have such a big, spacious, open apartment that is perfect for these types of things. And, when we get it all cleaned up, it looks even better!
I didn’t get many pictures because I was busy playing hostess and writing down all of the gifts she received (and, boy, did she receive some amazing gifts!! She is one lucky momma, that’s for sure.), but here are some that I did get. Amy (Sara’s sister and our roommate) decided to do a themed shower where all of the food related to a children’s book. I thought this idea was SO cute and it made it fun trying to find what food/books to pick.
As you can see, the food was amazing! And the book theme came out really well. I am so impressed with Amy and her mom’s planning because it took a lot of time to get everything “just right”. I made the cookies for “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie”, but they were nothing in comparison to the crazy-cute cupcakes that Amy made. They were almost too cute to eat. Almost, being the key word. I think the meatballs were probably my favorite (no surprise there), but the avocado deviled eggs were pretty amazing, too (we did avocado to get a green tint to go with “Green Eggs and Ham”). We sent people home with lots of leftovers, but luckily there was enough for us to keep some, too!
My sister and Sara, the beautiful mom-to-be!
My sister and sweet little Emma Jean!
Emma loved her Lovage baby food!
Mom and her girls! (yes, I know I look like a giant next to her)
My favorites. I cannot get over how amazing Sara looks for being just a month away from her due date.
Gotta have a belly grab photo!
So, there you have it. Yesterday afternoon was so wonderful. Sara was showered with love and presents and support… We are all ready for the little boy to come out, so hurry up!
Questions for you: Do you like hosting parties at your place? Any friends expecting babies soon? I have a bunch- it’s crazy!
