This past week my best moment was the baby shower my friends threw for me. It was such a beautiful shower and I had such a lovely time. Everyone who came was so wonderfully generous in showering our baby girl with gifts. Three of my girlfriends have been planning this baby shower for quite some time. Dana, Mandi and Ashley coordinated the shower together.
The shower was hosted at Dana’s house. The July afternoon weather was HOT but it was sunny and beautiful. You could not have asked for a more pretty day. The party was held in the backyard.
The guests who came were mostly friends, not family. Since I’m not originally from Colorado, I do not have any family members who live in the state. Eric, my husband, has an uncle and aunt and their son who live in the state, so I was glad Aunt Sue could make it to the shower as the one family representative. My family threw me a surprise baby shower when I was back in the Midwest for a visit in June.
The theme of the baby shower was more of colors: purple and teal. We had a sundae bar (which was amazing!!). The sundae bar was perfect with the hot summer afternoon. We had a fun ice cube game that we played. Inside of frozen ice cubes were little plastic babies. Each guest put an ice cube in her drink and once someone’s ice had totally melted and the baby was fully exposed, she could announce, “My water broke!” and win the game. That was fun!
The other game we played was baby gift bingo. Each lady had a bingo card with different baby items on it. As I opened gifts, they crossed off the items….5 in a row/diagonal won! I thought that was a creative way for guests to be more interested in what the gifts were. My shower planners were so smart!
Overall, it was a lovely day. I felt so happy and special. It’s a day I’ll remember for a long time!
We had an ice cream sundae bar! It was delicious and perfect on such a hot July afternoon.
My friend Ashley made this adorable fruit salad. How artistic!
This is the sign in table. The adorable turquoise chevron thing is a hair bow holder filled with lots of precious hair bows my friend Dana made.
The girls did such a beautiful job with the decorations for the baby shower. The theme colors were purple and teal/turquoise. It was a sundae bar baby shower. Everyone enjoyed the delicious sundaes since it was so hot in late July.
3 of my amazing girlfriends coordinated the baby shower together. They 3 of them put together such a beautiful day. This picture is me with the hostesses (from left:) Ashley, Dana, me and Mandi.
So many wonderful gifts. The guests played “baby bingo” while I opened gifts.
Some of the many ADORABLE little girl outfits we received! Can’t wait to dress her up in her stylin’ clothes.
Here are some of the gifts we received from our amazing friends.
Eric and I are so extremely grateful for such wonderful friends. It is hardly enough to say that we appreciate all of the gifts we received…but we are truly so blessed!!
