Carley here, 38 weeks pregnant (any day now!) and reporting on one of the greatest days of my life, my baby shower!
After a rainy week, the forecast called for more showers. I was a bit nervous as I did not want a literal baby “shower,” but somehow the weather stars aligned it turned out to be gorgeous, warm and sunny for my big day.
With the help of Pinterest I had some ideas of a theme for my shower. I enlisted the help of my two lovely and generous aunts, Ronda and Linda, and my best friend and fellow PoshTots co-worker, Ashley. I arrived to find that these amazing women went above and beyond their baby shower duties, and had all of the details I imagined executed to amazing detail. I cannot say how appreciative I am for their efforts in welcoming my son to the world. His first birthday party will have a lot to live up to!
I had a brunch themed shower, complete with a donut cake, cereal bar, fresh fruit, mimosa bar, and a waffle station!
I asked for color, and I got it! The shower had pops of color everywhere, from the fabric, to the vibrant fruit, to the handmade pom-poms, color flourished.
Birdies with bowties were the centerpieces of the tables, and certainly made a tweet impression!
We asked our guests to sign a postcard with a memory they look forward to making with the baby.
As we have a vintage travel themed nursery, our guest-book was a Virginia ornament with fingerprint balloons carrying our beloved state.
We had a blessingway, where our guest recieved a bracelet on thier left arm. They are to wear the bracelet until our baby is born, and think positive thoughts for a healthy and happy birth. Once the baby is born, they may cut the “cord” and send a positive wish to the mother and baby.
Beyond grateful for all the love and generosity in my life.
