Yaaaay for fun baby showers! I had my very first one this past Saturday, and I am so excited to share the photos that my mom and I took with you! I must admit, I was so relieved to see my vision come together an hour before the first guest arrived. I love planning and decorating events and get-togethers at our house, and my baby shower was certainly no exception.
Above are the lovely ladies (and a cute little gentleman) who came! I was thrilled when I found out that my Grandma (pictured on the far right) and my Auntie Libby (second from the left) were going to be flying in from Canada that weekend! It was an added bonus!
My sisters and mom planned a few super fun games to play – I accidentally ruined the last one when I opened my big fat mouth!! Whoops! – but I enjoyed every moment!
I decided to go with non-traditional baby girl colors for my shower – orange and blue. I love those colors together, as you can see from the chalkboard-styled invitations that I sent out (below). I just love chalkboards, so I incorporated that theme into the shower with mini chalkboards and a few larger ones!
(above) I hand crafted the banner… I was looking for something exactly like that, and I couldn’t find it anywhere online, so I just made it out of scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby! I LOOOOVED it!
(above) I loved the time and effort that Amy put into her gift bag for Marlowe!
(above) The always-lovely Bora and my Grandma!
(above) My mom is AWESOME at catching all the awkward faces that I make… I can’t blame her, though, I am very expressive and I rarely ever look good in candid photos! I’ve just come to embrace it!
(above) Can you tell how much I loved how the soda bottles came together?! I don’t think I took enough pictures of them!…
(above) I promise I wasn’t yelling at anyone in this picture! I wanted to include it because I’m pretty sure that’s the face I’m going to make when Marlowe’s “in trouble”… And if she’s anything like I was when I was growing up, that will be a lot!

(above) Again, I promise I wasn’t angry with anyone! I loved all my gifts, haha!
(above, right) It took me a few tries, but I’m really happy with the way my chalkboard sign came out!!
***A HUGE thank-you to everyone who helped put this shower together with me! I couldn’t have done it without you! I love you all so much!***
