This last weekend my dear friend Laura threw me the shower of all showers! She is an AMAZINGLY creative individual...(you'll see in the photos just what I mean). When I walked in my jaw dropped...the theme was based around one of my favorite children's books "The Very Hungry Catepillar" by Eric Carle--and let me just say I don't think there was one thing she DIDN'T think of! She (and her handy hubby) even made the wooden stumps and trees themselves! It was all ridiculously adorable! Even when I think about how much time and effort she put into this party, it brings me to tears; and the gals who joined in on the festivities...they just don't get much better. Gosh, it was such a great afternoon--here are a few of pictures I took (it really doesn't give it justice but I tried to get as much as I could...)
The invites:
Everyone wrote a little note to baby girl and pinned it to the tree...
(notice the little apple and pear pins...I know...just kill me now!)
Another game was for everyone to take a leaf and it had questions like 
"what's a baby item Aarean can't live without" or "What are the colors of baby girls nursery?"
Laura had this little Fuji Polaroid camera that I LOVED...
look how cute and tiny the little poloroids are! 
It's like instant gratification...snap it and out it pops :-)
Sometimes saying Thanks just doesn't seem quite enough...
but Laura (and the gals) THANK YOU from the bottom of my bursting heart.
Now all we need is for this little babe to make her debut...
which I have a feeling is coming very soon! (hopefully I didn't just jinx it?!?)

Pin It

  19. Thank you for sharing such an amazing baby shower, my daughter wants the same theme but I know I cannot make it half as good as yours however any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. May I ask what other foods did you serve and what games did you play? Did the prizes follow the theme? This is a baby shower oldest daughter who was told at a very young age and for many years after that she could not and would not be able to get pregnant.Her sister already has 3 boys and her brother and his girlfriend already have a boy. So my daughter also is having a boy and she wants me to plan the whole party. Since my other children wanted to plan there own showers so this is a first for me. So any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated and useful. Again let me say what a wonderful job! Do you have more photo's this is truly amazing baby shower as I would honestly love to see.

    Thank you
