Our Baby Shower








Yesterday Patrick and I were thrown an amazing baby shower at our apartment by our lovely friends Emily and Jenna! They did such an amazing job with decorations (color theme yellow of course!) and food, so I thought I would share some of their wonderful ideas. My favorites were the fabric banner, the flowers and the "make a wish" jar. They had some help in the food dept. by a couple of other friends, Libby and Regan. Regan's take on the traditional hostess cupcakes with some added baby flair were awesome! Being pregnant, I have had some weird cravings, so when asked what kind of food I wanted, I said meat and fruit. Odd, I know, but the girls went above and beyond!

I am taking a break this week from the blog, I have so many amazing personal and professional things going on and I need to focus. I look forward to sharing a few things with you in the near future, but until then, godspeed! xoxox

so beautiful! i love the cupcakes and the balloon doodles!!!

i am pregnant too and dread showers for the reason that they are not cute like this but generally rather cheeseball.

i hope my friends who are planning on throwing me one see this! :)
