My Baby Shower

Yes, I know... I'm seriously slacking with my posts. My shower was almost a month ago and I'm just finally posting about it now! I hope you can cut me a break though, I mean afterall with the holidays, the nesting, the lousy sleep I've been getting, and the everyday things that come up in life, I just haven't had time until now.

My mom hosted my baby shower at the most adorable cottage in the small town that I grew up in and it was beautiful beyond words. The photos that you are about to see don't do any justice to how pretty everything looked. Everything was pink, cozy, cute, and shabby chic (which is right up my alley).

There were over 30 people packed into this tiny little cottage, believe it or not. 

Gift Table

Dessert Table & Cookie Bar

Centerpiece and Cookie Container Favor
Instead of a candy bar we had a cookie bar and that served as the favors.
I'm not sure if you can read it but the favor box reads: "A giggle, a curl, a sweet little girl Baby B is on her way! Thank you for sharing in this special day. December 8, 2012"

Game Prizes- Baby Power Scented Candles & Russell Stover Chocolate Bars
We played Baby Bingo.
How cute are the chocolate bars?!

Gifts & Mini Diaper Cake
In case you haven't noticed, the theme of the shower was baby owls- my newest obsession.

No, we didn't coordinate our outfits to match or plan ahead. It just happened that way.

It was such an amazing weekend that was packed full of fun, friends, and family. My friend was in town from Arizona and I was so happy she was able to make to my shower. She is actually 4 weeks behind me in her pregnancy and her shower was the following day so it was a shower weekend for us and our friends! 

I remember thinking to myself around the time of our wedding that all of the events leading up to the big day, the big day included left me feeling so fortunate and so loved, loved on a whole other level and my baby shower left me with a very similar feeling. Our little girl is about to enter into a family filled with tons of excitement and happiness and an endless amount of love.

  4. I tried commenting on this post before but for some reason it didn't go through.

    LOVE the shower - so pretty and pink - and OWLS are SO cute...I saw some adorable prints on etsy of cute baby owls.

    1. There are so many adorable owl decorations out there for kids rooms. It's so funny that I'm attracted to owls because my great grandmother collected them too.

  5. aww how cute! i love all the pink details
