I am touched by how many of you have asked me to post some baby shower photos.
So, here we go! Just a warning - this post is photo heavy!
|We had asked for NO head table, but they had one for us, so here it is. Melissa, Jan (her mother-in-law) and I sat here. If you enlarge the photo, you can see some of Laurie Wilson's beautiful Doodle Pantry work in the very center of the banner.|
|This is just a shot of the tables. You can see the gifts beginning to accumulate in the background. After everyone arrived, there was barely room for another item. We feel so very blessed!|
|Of course, we had food! Strawberry spinach salad, chicken salad sandwiches, cheese, relishes, and lots of crunchy veggies, and punch to drink.|
|Again, here is some of the wonderful Doodle Pantry images! Laurie worked up the orange dots just for me, as well as the nugget wraps. If you ever need a special order item, she's your go to girl!|
|Here's one more shot, showing the napkin wraps too.|
|Each place setting had a favor bag. Some were pink, yellow, and blue polka dots, and some were white. The saying on the bag reads 'From our shower to yours, thanks for being here today! Melissa, Nick, and Baby Shaw. Again, the turtle is a Doodle Pantry image. Each bag contained a washcloth (couldn't find enough shower scrbbies) and a bar of Ivory soap, wrapped in coordinating cardstock, and tied with a pretty ribbon.|
|Here is our sweet little momma with her cake.|
|Here are the cake and cupcakes close up. Every single dot, button, flower, and stripe were edible!|
|She had just opened the Thank You Notes that momma made her.|
|And here she is with the quilt that I made.|
|This is our daugher, Melissa, our son John, and his fiance, Alicia. We are SO blessed! Alicia is a beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. We may have a fall destination wedding to look forward to in 2014!|
|DH and I with Melissa|
|Melissa with her in-laws, who traveled from Mesa, Az. to be here for the shower. Meet |
Tim and Jan!
|Last, but certainly not least, is Melissa with my very dear friend, Shirley. Many of you know Shirley from my blog - she and I are always crafting, shopping, and jabbering!|
A good friend of Melissa's, Jenny Buchanan, took the photos. There were way too many to post them all, so I tried to post as few as possible. If you have hung in with me all the way to the end of this post, you deserve a medal! I totally forgot to take pictures of anything that I created, included the Thank You cards. They were a onsie card, and turned out pretty cute. If I get one, I'll snap it later!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
