Oh, Baby!


For the past few months my mother and I had been busy bees, getting ready to host a baby shower for my brother and his wife! All the planning, gathering of ideas and items, resulted in our little vision coming true. It was a co-ed celebration, sans the cheesy games.

We had a wishing tree.....Wishes for Baby, which was super adorable. Everyone seemed to enjoy coming up with heartfelt and fun little bits for baby boy.
The theme was loosely based around the woodland feel of the shower invite.

As I was looking through all the photos, I realized that I had none of my sister-in-law and I together, as well as none of my brother and I together. Well, except for us playing badminton..but that doesn't count.I think that I got so caught up making sure everything was perfect before the guests arrived and I didn't even think about it during the shower. Lame. 

At least I got this photo of my mother and I together before everyone showed up :)
Mom and I spent a great amount of time making all of these delish cupcakes and lots of yummy sandwiches. My favs. were definitely the dark chocolate with peanut butter frosting cupcake and the mango chutney, cheddar and roast beef baguette sandwich. YUM. 
We had sweet treats throughout the house in cute little mason jars.
 The happy parents-to-be opening up their gifts.
For party favors, we went with fun little flowers and bunches of freshly picked lavender that guests could take home with them.
The grandmothers :)


I can't wait for the little guy to arrive and to be an auntie to my brother's child. Eeeeepp!
Congrats, Kam & Bren!
