the best baby shower ever


I’m so excited to share this baby shower today because it’s the best baby shower I’ve ever attended – and it was for me! My lovely friend Anna organized this amazing baby shower in honor of my daughter, who is expected to arrive this July. The theme was children’s books – guests were encouraged to bring a children’s book instead of a card in order to start the baby’s library, an idea I adored! Anna had lots of fun details – from the fabulous banner with the baby’s name (Emilia) to baby bottles filled with sweet tea and pink lemonade to drink, complete with pink polka dot straws. In lieu of a guest book, Anna had a box of toy blocks for guests to sign. The best part – the shower was over brunch, which is my favorite meal! The non-expecting guests were able to sip on mimosas, but we all nibbled on delicious brunch food, included amazing cupcakes made by my mother (who is very excited for her newest grandchild!). Enjoy!
