Celebrating Baby M

Two weeks ago now, I flew home to TN for a baby shower celebrating Baby M.
It was at my parent’s house and my mom and sister were the hostesses and they did a fabulous job making and putting everything together.

My mom, me, and my sister

Here I am before the shower ready for the guests to arrive.

Now let’s dive into all the fun stuff, the party details!

The guests were greeted at the front door with this cute decor mesh wreath my sister made.
Can you tell the color scheme?!

-Pretty Pink tulips were also on the porch getting everyone in the baby girl spirit.
-The mantle was all decorated and ready for the party.
-My mom made this large pom-pom flower that was perfect on the mantle.
-And my sister ordered two small diaper cakes with anchors on them (my sorority symbol), and those were on each end.

-For the party favors, my parents (yes, my dad helped out!) made these adorable jars of “White Trash” mix. Topped them with mini pom-poms and a ribbon and they fit right in.
-3D ultrasound pics of Baby M were also on display on the mantle since the party is all for her anyways.
-Here is a shot of the room from one corner. Wish I got a shot with the flowers on the tables. OOPS!
-And over the food table, hung some fabulous pom-poms made by my parents.

-My mother-in-law created all the adorable flower centerpieces. She made them look like an ice cream sundae.
-Inside the flowers were little picks with an image of an ice cream sundae on one side, and a message on the other.
-And then my mom made this fabulous tulle tu-tu skirt for the gift table.

-My sister bought this “It’s a Girl” banner from an etsy shop and it was hung along the mantle.
-The water bottles were wrapped in this cute label showing off Baby M’s name.
-Candy bar also had to be in the pink, white, and black color scheme.
-And then on a table they laid out small cards where guests wrote wishes to Baby M, addressed envelopes to help with my Thank You notes, and also had a notebook out where guests wrote words of advice to me.

My mother-in-law also made this cute flower bouquet out of baby socks, hats, and hair bows!
Too cute!

Time for some gifts!
Baby M got a lot of fabulous goodies!
-A couple blankets, one quilted by my best friend’s mom, some more made by Travis’ aunt, and she also got a pink crocheted blanket from my parent’s neighbor.
-Of course, adorable clothes were given.
-And lots of other fun stuff!

It was so fabulous seeing all my friends and family again!

It’s been far too long!

It was a fabulous shower celebrating Baby M and it got me even more excited for her arrival!!

Special thanks to my mom and sister for all their hard work and to my mother-in-law for the gorgeous flower arrangements! Love you guys!!

    What a great shower! Did you play any games or do any activities? I'm looking for non-cheesy ideas for my sister in law's shower next month. Thank! And congrats on that bump!

      We only played one game. It was the game where everyone wears a cloths pin or safety pin and you pick one or more words that can NOT be said, such as baby or cute. If someone hears someone saying one of the words, they steal their pin. Object is to collect as many pins as possible and of course, not lose your pin.
      And then we were letting guests take home the centerpieces so I just searched baby trivia facts and whoever answered correctly first, won.
