Sorry for being absent these last few days- I was busy with last minute shower details :) This past weekend was spent at home in Richmond, showering my sister at her baby shower. Many of my friends have had children but this shower was extra special to me, not only because it was for my sister but because I am going to be a first time AUNT!
Everything turned out perfectly. We had right at 40 guests attend, making it memorable for Kristen and Chris. Baby Eli is already loved by so many. Just about 7 more weeks until he makes his debut. (I cannot wait to meet him!)
My mom did a wonderful job with the cake design. It is Ukrop's Bakery, for all of you Richmonders!
Moon and Stars Sugar Cookies - recipe and more pictures coming this week.
I specifically wanted these light blue hydrangeas with subtle light green (almost yellow) centers. I knew they would add a nice touch to the shower and tie in perfectly with the color scheme. There are also quite a few meanings for the hydrangea- my favorite being heartfelt emotion- appropriate for a baby shower. We had 12 vases placed throughout the room.
Baby pictures of Kristen and Chris. I loved this DIY frame they made for the shower. They bought the frame and secured the twine on the back. My sister printed their baby pictures on these cute Polaroid pictures from an app!
Wish Tree, made by one of Kristen's friends.
This little baby is so loved!
The proud parents :)
Don't she look amazing at 33 weeks?!
