shower me with your love
Saturday was my official baby shower. My Mom threw it for me and it was absolutely fabulous. The tables looked beautiful and she created these really clever centerpieces for each one. She took these little buckets and filled each one with different baby supplies—bottles, diaper cream, socks, hats, burp cloths, etc. When the shower was over I got to take all the goodies home with me. Each place setting had a little bag with a package of hot chocolate (one of I think 6 different flavors) & a large biscotti. I had a similar favor—with mini biscottis—at my bridal shower four years ago and loved the idea of tying together the beginning of our life as a family of two with the beginning of our life as a family of three.
The food was great. We had mini croissaints with either chicken salad or ham & swiss cheese, potato salad, green salad, fruit salad, potato chips, mini eclairs & cream puffs along with punch, coffee, and water. The cake was an adorably decorated marble sheet cake. Everyone seemed to enjoy all the food and although I haven't had a piece of the cake yet, I heard it was excellent.

While my guests enjoyed their cake, I opened the huge pile of gifts waiting for me. We got so many great things. The registry must be bare because we got almost everything we registered for. Every bit of the nursery themed items were purchased, our car seat, diaper bag, monitors, you name it. We also got lots of cute little outfits in all different sizes.
