A Baby Shower

This past weekend I hosted a baby shower at my home for a very dear friend. She is one of those friends that when I feel insane she seems to always have the words to make me sane once again. She is pregnant for the second time, this time with a sweet boy named Caleb who happens to be due very close to my birthday in August. Here is her day...

The beautiful guest of honor being swallowed by all her gifts.

Flowers were in great abundance thanks to a friend who has amazing hydrangea bushes galore.

The invite is by Announcing You on Etsy. She was kind enough to set it up so I could print my own on 110 lb. cardstock.

I made the onsie designs to hang as you entered my home and again with the amazing flowers.

The banner is from Tomorrow's October on Etsy.

Plates, forks and real napkins ready and waiting.

Just in case you wanted a closer look.

Brooke from Blueprint Bliss was so sweet and allowed me to borrow her stunning tumblers by Roost, they are the ones in the tray. I think I need to buy a few sets for myself. Thank you so much Brooke, they were a hit!

The yummy food table. I wanted to incorporate the rich blues and hydrangeas ever since seeing this post by Jennifer.

A close up of the almond danish swirls made by the wonderful friend with the hydrangeas. They are quite easy and make for a delicious treat.

The mother to be {again} and all her hostesses. I am the one in white just in case you were wondering.
