This Saturday was the baby shower event of the year. It has been many months of preparation leading up to a 2 hour event that was over in a flash. Nicole, the proud Mama-to-be, was delighted with the decorations, the food and all the work that the party planners put in for her party. We had perfect weather. It was sunny and warm, so all the guests were dolled up in beautiful Spring dresses. We played Baby Shower Mad Libs, a Baby Memory Game and Baby Shower Bingo, while Nicole opened her huge stack of gifts.
It was so nice to finally reveal my centerpiece. This project proved to be much more work than I had originally planned, but it turned out better than I expected. I will post more on the construction of my centerpiece later this week. (All the Moms have been dieing to see it, so I promised pictures this weekend.) The idea for the centerpiece came from the need to display my Cake Lolipops, inspired by Bakerella. All the guests got to take home a few as a shower favor.
I was really happy with how everything turned out. All the work was worth it to see how happy Nicole was to know how much her friends care about her and how excited we all are for her new baby.
