As soon as my good friend Min found out she was expecting a little girl, I started planning, with my friends
Christine (who volunteered her lovely house), Kaley and Sara, to give her a pretty and girly baby shower. We wanted it to be special and intimate and I believe that is just what it ended up being!
|Diaper wreath: I got this idea from Pinterest.com. I simply|
tied diapers to a wire hanger with ribbon. Super easy and cute.
|My mom got this metal stork for my baby shower and has been|
used a few times since. What a great find, Mom!
|We got this little story book for Min and had everyone in|
attendance add a little wish or message for the new baby.
|It took 6 bunches of carnations to create this gorgeous arrangement! Carnations have a bad rap, but used in large amounts they have tremendous impact.|
|Christine created this adorable bunting banner.|
|Candy is a great decoration!|
|Another darling detail that Christine added: doily backing with little bows and a poem on water bottles.|
|Yummy and beautiful cupcakes by Christine|
|The food was delicious and one of the best things about the afternoon!|
Thanks again Christine.
|Min's friend Sara brought the cake made by a wonderful local bakery, Nadia Cakes.|
|Min, my beautiful friend and mommy to be, and me.|
|I couldn't resist showing my friend Monica's shoes....cute!|
|My friend, Kaley, wanted to have all the ladies do a|
flower arrangement to take along with them, instead of
the traditional games.
|We had the best time just chatting and tucking flowers into our individual and unique tea cups!|
|Everyone has signed the story book!|
|What a fun and lovely afternoon with old and new friends! It was so special to honor Min and welcome her new baby and I was privileged to be apart of it.|
