I know some of you out there think that you had the best baby shower, but I have some bad news for you. I actually had the best baby shower. (Kim – her food here – and Vickie, your showers tie for second-best.)
My hostess team consisted of my mom, my sister Bri, and my two friends, Heather and Vanessa.
Here is what greeted my guests as they arrived at the house.
Once inside, my guests looked right and saw the favor table and wish tree, and to their left was the food in the dining room.
Guests were asked to fill out a wish tag for the baby and hang it on the tree. Unfortunately, I neglected to take a picture of the branches loaded down with well wishes.
We’ll take the long way to the dining room. From the foyer to the den…
Guests were asked to bring an unwrapped book for the McBaby’s bookshelf. Everyone signed a label that went in their book. You probably recognize this table from my cake post. My blog/guest-of honor fail moment was that I didn’t snap a picture of the shelf (which my mom made) loaded with books.
Okay, time to eat! Let’s go see what’s happening in the dining room.
I’ll zoom in and you guys should be able to figure out the theme.
Do you get it? The general shower theme was kids’ books, and my hostesses chose several books to help set the menu. Neat, right?
Over on the buffet, Bri had a hot cocoa station set up. I know they used packets of hot chocolate to make the cocoa, but something they did with it made it especially tasty.
The toppings and mix-ins for the hot cocoa.
My mom made the license plates. My birthday on the left, the McHusband’s on the right, and the due date below. I’ll be adding them to a wall in the baby’s room.
One more table of goodies to go!
See, I told you: Best. Baby. Shower. Ever.
