What a special day! My baby shower kind of felt like my bridal shower all over again….only 2 years later and celebrating a whole new chapter in my life! My mom and sisters planned out the whole day for me and I must say, they really out did themselves! The food & desserts, the decoration & detail, the people who filled the room!! It is just what I wanted. There was so much love surrounding me and so many people encouraging me in this journey. Days like this I can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of thankfulness for the people in my life. Rylee is going to be one loved baby girl.
I couldn’t help but contribute to the “stationary” for the shower, as that is what I live for! Not entirely, but I refused to pass up the opportunity to create a cute baby invite, especially when it was my own baby we were talking about! I’ll post more on the invite later….but I created matching game sheets, food labels and raffle cards to go along with the “baby bunny” theme. And my sister printed out tiny little round labels with the bunny illustration to put on all the pink cupcakes! So cute. And those mason jars tied with vintage floral ribbon!?? LOVE. That was all my mom!
Lunch was my favorite! Crackers with brie and apricots, walnut chicken salad on croissants, berry spinach salad, and fresh fruit. YUM!! I could eat this every day and be happy!
Everyone who brought a pack of diapers to the shower got their name entered in a raffle to win one of my prints. THIS PRINT in fact. My friend Anna won. SO fitting because she just had a baby girl herself and she already has it up in the nursery! Yay!
Rylee has quite the wardrobe started already! She definitely has more shoes than her dad, however she has not surpassed her mom yet …..YET!
Some of the most amazing girls I know.
My mom and sisters! Who planned this whole day for me!
