What an afternoon full of elegance, cake and love!
My best friend going back to age 2, Kirst, and her mom, Vibeke, hosted the most beautiful shower today. Kirst did such a gorgeous job with the decorations – which she made herself!
Including this gorgeous ribbon mobile that I am going to hang over the baby’s crib!
We headed over at 12:30 and were welcomed with a beautiful spread of foods
We played a few fun games after lunch
The first was a game of children’s literary characters and books. We had to guess in teams – some of them were really hard to guess (like Strega Nona and the Magic Pasta Pot!)
The second game was a baby photo guessing game! Guests were asked to bring a baby photo and we had to guess who was who
So glad Sarah was able to come and I was able to meet baby Annabel for the first time! Hard to believe I was at her shower just a few months ago!
Baby Y-M received so many wonderful and thoughtful gifts. Many of the shower attendees were from my mom’s church and it was lovely to see them all in this exciting time.
From darling outfits
To toys that bounce and light up
To handmade gifts, books, and practical items (ahem, breast pads : ) )
And a handmade quilt featuring MARSHMALLOW PEEPS in honor of my mom’s adoration of the famous confection!
When all of the gifts were unwrapped, we feasted on two homemade cakes that Kirst made!
One was chocolate with strawberry filling and the other was vanilla with chocolate filling
I enjoyed a small slice of each – plus some ice cream – and was full of heaven!
As party favors, Kirst made pacifiers from Oreos and Ritz crackers dipped in chocolate! So cute.
Mom and I have been ooing and ahhing over everything as we’ve unpacked and sorted back at home.
Thank you so much Kirst and Vibeke for such a memorable event. And to everyone who attended for your love and gifts. And to Larbs for taking most of the photos!
