The Baby Shower

I threw a baby shower for my dear sister-in-law Elisa. It turned out pretty cute, I guess.

Welcome to the Shower

What would a baby shower that I pretty much totally planned on Pinterest be without a few chalk boards?

Mad Libs Tree

We had mad libs cards that everyone filled out with advice for the new mommy.

The food turned out deliciously. Lots of family members made the food happen, and it was gobbled up promptly.

The Menu:
Turkey Special Sandwiches
Vanilla Cupcakes with Strawberry Filling
Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Filling
My Moms Amazing Cheeseball
Artichoke and Spinach Dip with chips and baguettes

Charlie Pictures

If you could not tell, the shower was bird themed. The table was also decorated with tender pictures of baby Charlie I took the day before the baby shower.

Frogs and Snails Sandwiches


By the by, Elisa made this cupcake stand! It turned out beautifully, don't you think?

Cider Punch!

We had a yummy apple cider punch.

Cody's Tower of Cups

I asked Cody to put the cups out for easy access. Cody got creative.

This shin-dig took lots of work but it was sooo good plan it out as much as I did, otherwise things would have been a mess. And the lovely new momma enjoyed it, I think. And that is what makes it count the most!

Thanks so so so much to every single person who helped make this partay happen! And Congrats to Elisa and Kevin!

The pictures, as awesome as they are, really don't do it justice. Everything was perfect and so well thought out. I am, as always, so impressed with your creative skills and know how many months of hard work and preparation this took. You and Cody rock!
