A Baby Shower in May

My sister-in-law Meagan, sister Mary, and Mom gave us an absolutely gorgeous baby shower today! Thank you! We are so blessed to be surrounded by such loving and supportive family and friends. 

I'm 36 weeks pregnant today! We are getting closer as we countdown the days until her due date on June 24th, the solemnity of the Birth of St. John the Baptist.  It's been a difficult pregnancy and I'm looking forward to finally meeting her when she arrives. I've never made it to my due date, so I am guessing it will be sooner rather than later, but hopefully after my husband arrives back home

.: Decorations :.

.: Mom-osa Bar :. 

.: Salad Luncheon :. 

While Meagan arranged flowers, decorated her beautiful backyard for the shower, and even took the time to freeze rosebuds in ice cubes, my mom and sister spent all day yesterday making all sorts of amazing homemade salads and Chicken Satay Spring Rolls for the luncheon! 

.: Family & Friends :. 

.: Cake & Cupcakes :. 

.: Gifts for Baby :. 

It's going to be so much fun to have another baby girl in the house. Everything she has been given is so darling. I can't wait to see her wrapped in the new blankets and dressed in the cute outfits. 

I have some incredibly talented friends who made us the sweetest gifts for our new baby girl, including a darling bonnet and necklace from Aleesa, Courtney and their Mom (Saong Jai) as well as a new saint doll from my friend Ann-Marie over at Trendzilly! Kristi (Paradise Jewelry) and Luzmaria (The Artsy Sand Piper) are waiting on us to finalize a name. We are working on it! 

Even though they couldn't all be here this weekend for the shower, four of my sisters, along with my mom and Meagan, all went in on getting us a stroller and car seat for the baby! 

.: Party Favors :. 

Meagan made Peppermint & Orange Sugar Scrub for all the guests to take home. 
It was such a fun afternoon. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate our new little blessing!

    1. They were handmade by a local husband and wife who run an event rentals business in our area. My SIL rented them for the shower. My brother did make the table that all the drinks were on and it is usually where they put the 2 - 10' Farm Tables for the shower. They are so gorgeous! Especially decorated with all the flower arrangements my SIL and her friend made with flowers from Trader Joe's!
