In Party Planning

showering Baby C

I’ve mentioned a few times that we recently were able to “shower” one of our dear friends and her upcoming addition – Baby C!

It’s been so fun to see some of my best girl friends become mama’s, and this one was no different.  From singing Mariah Carey and dancing to BSB {that’s Backstreet Boys for all of you that are out of the 1990-2000’s loop}, we’ve come along way. I know she will be a fabulous mom – just like she’s always been a fabulous friend!

This is the first shower I’ve helped host from another city, so when we got ready to leave Friday night, I tried to assemble everything in boxes so it would be easy to move the morning of the shower.  Note to everyone: clear fishing line does not travel well. Lesson learned 🙂

We didn’t really have a theme, but we instead used different blue and green patterns! Who says little boy stuff is boring?

When the mama-to-be came down the stairs that morning, I couldn’t help but smile at the fact that she matched the napkins perfectly! What can I say, we both have good taste!

Because the shower was mid-morning, we decided to do a variety of brunch foods – cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit, pigs in a blanket, grits, doughnut holes, and the favorite of the day – Tuck’s breakfast casserole.

To wash all that goodness down, we served a variety of juices and coffee.  Everything was delish! {But that’s coming from the girl who requested our wedding rehearsal be brunch – and had just that. Thanks Mom and Dad A!}Baby Boy Shower | Atwell Adventures.003

Baby C received lots of good gifts – and of course, it was only appropriate that she received this great diaper bag off of her registry – in blue stripes! Love it.

Such a fun morning celebrating this sweet friend!  So thankful for her and her friendship these last 19 years!  Can’t wait to see you and Alex as parents and meet our new little man!

Oh and I can’t leave without saying thanks to these two nerds for all the last minute help and listening to my requests on where to hang bunting. Bless them.
