Adventures in Baby Showers

October 8, 2011

On September 24th we had our first baby shower! My mother-in-law decided to host it at her home for our friends and family who lived in the area, which was very sweet of her. It was so overwhelming to see so many people come together for our little girl. She is already loved by so many! I can’t wait until she is here and everyone gets to meet her!

While I was getting ready for the shower Carl snapped this picture and I think it’s by far my favorite one that we’ve taken. I’m also trying to learn how to use Adobe Lightroom so I played around with it to get the shot to have this neat look.

We all pitched in to pull the food together: little sandwiches, veggies, hummus, fruit and cake. Yum! Keith was in charge of the fruit bowl that was made out of a watermelon and in the shape of a baby carriage. It turned out beautifully!

Amy was in charge of the hummus.

MIL had such a cute idea to do Harper’s name as blocks instead of a traditional cake. Loved it!

Check out the beautiful diaper cake that Carl’s Aunt Joie made for us! It was made from over 300 diapers in newborn, 1 and 2 sizes.

I was so happy that Carl was there with me to open the presents and share in the excitement as we received beautiful presents for Harper. Below are just a few of the gifts that we received.

This was another super cute and creative idea – the flowers are baby clothes! Onesies, wash cloths and socks from Carl’s Aunt Ann and Evan and Diana. Loved it!

My father-in-law’s birthday was the following weekend so we went out for sushi. I can’t wait to go back and eat there again. The food was awesome!

Thank you everyone who was able to make it to our shower back home or were there with us in spirit. We love you!
