On the Cutest Baby Shower Ever

Yup, I'm talking about mine!

I couldn't have put together a better shower.  It's like my family and friends read my mind.

I have to take my hat off to my sister who planned the entire thing from Houston.  Can you say planner extraordinaire! Arranging a swank baby shower for about 45 folks from another city was no easy feat. She took a few pics from my pinterest board, my love for owls (which represent wisdom), clean & modern design, and favorite color teal blue and planned an event that was warm yet sophisticated.

The hostess with the mostest taking a moment from organizing to celebrate and make a toast. 
Everyone who attended made my day so incredibly special, but there were a few folks that really went out of their way to make the day perfect.

My parents traveled all the way from Houston.  Their plane touched down, and they went right to work making sure everything was in place. 

Can you believe my mom made that beautiful centerpiece? The work she does with her hands is amazing. 
My girlfriend Dr. K. couldn't make the shower, but she touched my heart by making the cutest invites that captured the spirit of the event. 

I also have to thank my bestie for helping with the decor and planning one of the most fun and creative games I've played at a baby shower.  It's an original game she created where she took snippets of songs that had the word "baby" in them. Guests had to listen closely to see if they could guess the artists.  

The bestie and I - COORDINATED! 

My auntie made the yummiest cupcakes. They were a hit, and I still want to know who ate my extra key lime one that I'd stashed away.

I'll leave you with a few more pics, but for more up-close details of our special day, please visit the blog of the florist (and mentee and former student of mine), Violet Gardens Floral Design, who helped to transform Smith Commons into a venue worthy of hosting the cutest baby shower ever! PUH-LEEZ visit her blog.  Her detail shots are so much better than my iPhone shots. While you're there, take a look at all of the beautiful work that she does. I'm so proud of her. 

My pics of the decor do the space no justice. 

Smooches from my babydaddy <3

Until next time, I'll be over here reusing those beautiful paper flowers in the nursery and working on the rest of my thank you cards.
