A sneak peek at our baby shower

July 08, 2019

So as some of you may know, I'm currently 31 weeks pregnant with baby no. 2! My amazing Sister in Law Michelle along with my Mother in Law Kathy and some close family friends threw the baby shower of dreams for us. After many different discussions and trawling pinterest for weeks, we finally decided on a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme. I'm definitely a less is more kind of girl and the decor could not have been more perfect. Michelle found the most adorable sign that said 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' from Hobby Lobby as well as the wooden garlands you can see hanging from the mantel in the present opening pictures! I decided to make my own invitations and party games using my secret weapon (canva.com) which incorporated the star theme perfectly! We asked all of our guests to bring a book instead of a card and now we have the cutest library for Baby Whitt to start out with including You are my Happy by Hoda Kotb and some Dr Seuss favorites! Michelle also found the super cute Oh Baby wooden blocks that all of our amazing guests signed which will be proudly displayed in Baby Whitt's nursery. 

Our lovely friend Rachel kindly lent us the beautiful backdrop we used outside for some posed pictures. My mother in law Kathy made rice krispie treats in the shape of stars as our favors which are my husband Matt's all time favorite food! The food selection was a pregnant woman's dream and was kept topped up constantly by the lovely Nicole! Ham & cheese sliders made by Casey, Cake pops from Kim, the greatest sherbet punch by Sandy and the star of the show, Edie's incredible and famous coconut cake! For games, we decided on making the disney parent to the disney child which resulted in a 3-way tie and guess the size of Mommy's bump. Congrats to Ashlyn & Kim for winning the games!

All in all, it was everything I could've dreamed of and more. We were thoroughly spoiled by all of our friends and family so this one's for all of them! Baby Whitt is going to be surrounded by the most incredible family and friends. Shoutout to Kayla for playing photographer for the day!
