Our Baby Shower

Monday, December 8, 2014

And just like that another weekend has flown by! As I attempt to clean up the glitter and pine needles from decorating our tree, I thought today might be a good day to share some pictures from our baby shower!

It was so surreal being at my own baby shower! My Mom hosted and I'm amazed at how perfect everything turned out, especially considering she had just hosted Thanksgiving 2 days before and had a house full of people the whole weekend.


The Little Pumpkin baby shower theme was perfect and all of the little details and time my Mom put into planning it made it so special. I helped her out my designing some water bottle and favor labels with parts of the baby shower invitation.


The favors were mason jars filled with pumpkin granola and Reeses pieces. This recipe is so easy to make and I loved how my Mom decorated the jars! The dessert table also included iced pumpkin cookies and homemade fudge, along with the cutest baby shower cake ever!


A friend of mine, my maid of honor from the wedding, made the cake and cake topper. It was so perfect and delicious, I still can't get over how talented she is! (See our Florida Gator cake topper she made here.) It was really special having her involved and it's safe to say the cake was a hit because it was completely gone by the end of the shower!

Yes... my parents have a giant Senior picture of me on the wall. #onlychildproblems

Knowing I'm not one for complicated shower games, my Mom decided on baby shower bingo (a huge hit with most of the crowd, they get intense about their bingo) and a really easy trivia game with questions about Rowan and a few about my husband and I as kids. My friends and family also cut out pieces of yarn to wrap around my belly and see who was the closest to the size of my bump. (Side eye to those of you who thought I was gigantic!)


So many of our friends and family pitched in to help us with diapers, everyone was so generous! I think we are stocked in the diaper department now!

Rowan was completely spoiled by our friends and family and I couldn't have been more thankful to see all of them at one time since we aren't able to make it up to visit often. We were so excited to get home and organize everything for our little guy. A special thank you again to my Mom for hosting, Justine for the cake, and my cousin Amy for taking photos for us!
