This past weekend my mom, sisters, sister-in-law, and mother-in-law threw me a fantastic baby shower. I knew they would do a wonderful job, but I felt so happy with how everything turned out. Here’s a few highlights from the day!
Welcome to the World Baby Shower
The theme of the shower was “welcome to the world” with an around the world/travel feel to it. If you have known me for any amount of time, you know I’ve done a lot of traveling, speak several languages, and love different cultures. They did a buffet style lunch with food from different countries and a flag in the food to represent that country. I enjoyed some vegan/gluten free baked Ziti (Italy), Vegetable sushi (Japan), a taco (Mexico), and some Greek salad (Greece). They also had a great fruit and veggie spread to enjoy on the side!
The center pieces were balloons that looked like globes on top of maps. Everything was so creative and well done! For dessert, they ordered from the vegan/gluten free bakery that I’m always raving about so I was able to enjoy banana chocolate chip cake, a variety of cookies, and peanut butter oatmeal bars. I had forgotten what it was like to be able to have so many choices!
There was a station where they had people write messages on diapers so that we can read them as we change her at 2 am and who knows what else. There was also a guess how many M&M’s in the bottle game, a baby word scramble, and a word search for guests to play for a prize.
I really enjoyed catching up with friends and family, eating delicious food, and opening up so many generous gifts. Luckily, we had the help of family to load and unload all of our baby loot from the cars to our apartment.
As I showed Daniel all of the things we received, I was reminded again how much I appreciate and love my family and friends. Thank you to everyone who had a part in my shower. It was a day I was looking forward to and it went beyond my expectations. This little lady is already so loved and I feel so very blessed and supported. <3
