My Baby Shower

I haven’t had the chance to blog about our baby shower yet! My mother-in-law and mom threw me a shower in October and it was perfectly “me.”

I had practically nothing to do with this shower. I met with the moms twice, then bowed out. They put together a woodland/literature theme with all my favorite fall foods & yummy drinks. (Our nursery is woodland themed- pictures coming someday.) Imagine a crisp fall day in the forest & you’re camped out under a tree with a good book and a mug of warm coco. That was my shower.

We had chili, a baked potato bar, a hot coco bar, delicious desserts, and so much more. The tables were decorated with elements from nature and children’s books and woodland animals. The facility was a winery that had a waterfall and back patio. We received so many generous gifts, too. It was overwhelming and brought me to tears.

The moms delegated help to family and friends, too. My friends put together the decadent charcuterie board & organized the games. Family members helped with food and desserts and decorations. Having such a strong, creative, generous community is such a blessing- I feel very blessed to bring our little girl into this circle of incredible women (and men- my brother, dad, father-in-law, and husband helped, too!).

      Man… thank goodness she’s finally here. Haha. It’s nice to be less round, even if I am more tired.

  5. You are unbelievably beautiful.
    Baked potato bar? Omg, gimmee! The decorations and everything are just stunning. I want to steal the woodland theme idea. Not for a baby shower since they’re not a thing here (and I wouldn’t dare celebrate a baby before they were actually born safely anyway) but maybe for a first birthday party or something.

      You’re so sweet ❤ Thank you AGAIN for the books! I think she loves them. We brush her feet against all the different textures!
      You should definitely pocket the woodland theme idea! It worked out perfectly for an October party 😀

    I love the childhood stuffed animals – that’s so cute. And of course, all the stuffed animals and books in general. What a fun and creative shower. It looks beautiful!

      They really took into account all the things I love. It was a great day and I felt so loved! My childhood bunny still hangs out in my bedroom. A friend actually snuck it out the morning of the shower to surprise me with it at the winery!
