My Best Friends Baby Shower

October 19, 2014

My friend Hannah and I have been friends since we met in the pre-school at our church. We became best friends in the 3rd grade and remained friends till now. She really knows me, and has been a loyal friend to me for many years. I was SO excited to shower her with excitement and love for the arrival of her baby girl. 

We had discussed exactly what she envisioned for her shower. She expressed that she wanted a VERY neutral, co-ed, yet festive shower. Since it’s October, we decided to go with white pumpkins, and white hydrangeas for the center pieces. We painted Mason Jars with gold paint, and wrapped thin rope around the top. I loved how these turned out.

She also expressed that she did NOT want to play games. She wanted it to have a more “get together” casual party type feel. She liked the idea of guests writing funny messages on the bottom of diapers for those late night diaper changes. This was optional. Guests could choose to participate or not. We didn’t announce this, we just left the chalkboard out with instructions. We had lots of funny diapers by the end of the night.

We had iced tea, a keg of root beer & a hot chocolate bar with all the fixings for custom hot chocolate.

We decided on warm chili and sliders for the food. Since this shower was co-ed, Hannah’s husband had a say also. He really preferred this menu option. Byron made the food, and it was all fantastic.

 I made a three layered cake with edible gold sprinkles.. I had to decorate the sprinkles with Oliver in my arms, so I couldn’t get it perfect.. I still really loved it though.. This was a yellow cake with cream cheese frosting.

    Very classy and festive. Love the idea of having little notes on the diapers bottom, this is just the kind of pick-me-up you need at 2 am…

    We hear how important getting your daily dose of vitamin and mineral rich fruits and vegetables are for proper body functioning and overall health.
    All of the parts are easily removed and are made of an easy-to-clean material.
    You might think that taking the time to juice your own fruit is time consuming and wasteful.
