I hosted the party at my house and Emily's friends were more than helpful! They brought delicious food and gorgeous cupcakes, planned fun games with sweet prizes and even did Emily's makeup. She looked so beautiful!
I wanted to share some of my decorations with you. Since the sex of the baby is going to be a surprise I decided to go with a shades of green theme.
I made tissue paper pompom balls in two shades of green.
A few desserts, some candy and some fresh flowers from the garden.
Enjoy your rhododendrons now.. they don't stick around long!
A simple little DIY banner tops the cake.
mmm.. chocolate covered strawberries.
Cucumber infused water and a simple punch.
I also bought my felt from the etsy seller ILoveFelt.
Here are a few more details...
Another DIY bunting flag. This time with paper!
A picture book without words. All the guest wrote messages to the baby as a keepsake!
I'm bummed that I didn't get photos of the food table. It had a sweet wrapping paper as a table runner, fresh flowers, candles and tons of yummy food. It seems, unfortunately, that my camera bit the dust! :(
Which also means that I didn't get any photos at the shower. Hopefully someone will send some my way!
I had so much fun preparing and I'm sad that it's all over now!
Can't wait to see that baby's sweet little face in a month's time. Em and I live a short walk away from each other, so I hope she realizes that the girl who doesn't work in the summer (aka me) will be over every day getting in some snuggle time!
