A Friend’s Baby Girl Shower!

Last weekend, one of my good friends Amy had a sweet little baby shower for her baby girl.  It was a beautiful sunny day outside and just a perfect day for a celebration.  She’s a couple weeks ahead of me in her pregnancy so it’s been fun to see what I have to look forward to through her and just to have a friend to go through pregnancy with.  And what I can’t wait for most, is for our babies to have play dates together.  🙂

Here’s a look at the yummy food table at the shower.  Her baby’s name is going to start with an A, just like mine!  😉

I LOVE veggies and dip, like a lot.  Even more so because it’s healthy!

Cheese, punch, and tea, and super cute decorations!

Maple cinnamon cupcakes… yes, I had two (one for me and one for baby).  😉

We all wrote advice on these onesie cut outs for the momma-to-be, such a cute idea/decoration all in one!

Isn’t she a beautiful and glowing momma-to-be?  I got her a bunch of stuff from handmade shops, including these adorable Pleasantly Plump Knits booties.  So perfect for her little baby girl who will be born in the colder months.

And here we are rubbing her belly for good luck and of course we had to do a belly comparison shot!  I’ve always heard that baby girls sit higher in the belly than baby boys, granted Amy is taller than me, but I think I can tell her belly sticks out more at the top than mine?  Do you see it?

Going to her baby shower just got me super excited about mine.  My bridesmaids/SIL are throwing me a shower this upcoming weekend and I CANNOT WAIT!

P.S. While I have your attention… just wanted to announce the winner of the Yes, Teacher giveaway!  If your name is Maria and you blog at Little Tree Vintage, CONGRATS!  Please email me at sandyalamode(at)gmail(d0t)com to claim your prize and I’ll get you in touch with Sarah!

    Super cute booties. My husband said he would have eaten 8 cupcakes. Oh to have his metabolism.

    That looks like a lovely shower. So exciting yours is coming up next week.

    One idea I saw and liked was an advice book for different stages in the child’s life. There was a page for 0-6 months, 6 months-year, toddler years, elementary school, middle school, and high school. Guests could write down their advice at their leisure throughout the party.

    I saw fruit in waffle cones somewhere online. If my shower weren’t going to be in the middle of winter, I would MAKE my sister do that for my shower, but it would be super expensive with fruit all out of season. Sounded super tasty though.

    My first shower, thrown by my Mother-in-love and some college roommates is November 5th. I can’t wait.

    My mom and sister are throwing one for me after our little one arrives. I can’t wait to see pictures of your shower! How fun!

    When I throw showers I love to make brunch food. My fave kind of food to make! Quiche, baked french toast, cinnamon rolls, etc. yum

    Can you believe I’ve never been to a baby shower? How is that even possible?

  5. October 9, 2011 / 10:43 pm

    So precious! I cannot (but can) wait until my friends start having babies along with me! I honestly don’t go to many baby showers so I don’t know what my favorite celebration would be, but I love the onesies decor idea! I’ll keep that in mind.
