Baby Shower Recap

June 20, 2011 at 9:31 AM 9 comments

This past Saturday, I had a great time co-hosting a shower.  The weather could not have been better and it was so much fun catching up with friends.  I thought I’d share pictures from the event today…

We ate at one long table outside at my mom’s house and then moved over to a rose garden area under a large oak tree to open presents.  My co-host, Rita, is a very talented interior designer so we had a great time working on the table decor together.

We decided to go with the colors that Shannon (our special mom to be) is using for her nursery.  I found pink fabric that looked similar to her bedding and with the help of my mom we sewed them into runners for the table.

For the flowers, we used mint julep cups and baby silver cups that my mom had to run down the table.  For the center of the table, we used a blue and white vase and put in roses from my mom’s garden.  Each table seat had little gray boxes filled with Shannon’s favorite candies and we tied in the gray with the gray and white striped straws.

And now for some people pictures.  Shannon was glowing and oh so beautiful in her colorful dress.  Here she is below with her proud mom.

All of us girls went to high school together – such fun to get back together again.Thank you to my mom for hosting the party at her house, for helping with making the table runners, going to Cost Plus with me for finishing details, and making the flower arrangements.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

We all can’t wait to meet Baby Foote in August!!
