Oh, Baby! [Boy Baby Shower]

Last weekend we finally had some days where the weather cooperated and we didn’t have a million activities for the girls.
So, I got together with a friend from work and we threw a baby shower for one of our colleagues.
What, that’s not what you do when you have a free Saturday?
Weird.  ;)
 Our pal is having a sweet little boy in the fall, so, as moms of girls, we jumped on the chance to do a cool 'dude' color palette of navy, orange and lime green.

Our whole theme for this shower was just to relax and enjoy all the baby goodness going on.  Nothing fussy or overdone, just cute and simple.  I think we accomplished that.

Isn’t this little onesie adorable?
You know, for days when baby is a little “crabby?” 
HA! Anyone? No?
Okay, it’s just me.  But it’s still cute. : )


My co-hort Jill had a great idea to use a children’s book as a guest book for the shower. (we used the Dr. Seuss book on the left)
That Jill, she’s crafty.

Adorable mom-to-be has the SWEETEST little baby bump that you can’t see here, but trust me.  Super Cute.

And leave it to Jill to find yummy treats to send home with guests that matched the décor.  Gotta love that!

We just whipped up a label for the bags, she added cute ribbon, and we sent ‘em on their way.

  2. What a sweet shower and a wonderful job! Love the color combo too! And could that mom-to-be be any cuter?

  3. For the guest book, Dr Seuss idea, could the guests sign anywhere? Love the idea

  4. Hi Juanita!

    We just had the guests sign on the front inside cover of the book - that way they were all contained to the same area, and it was the first thing she would see when she opened it up to read it. But really, you could do whatever.
