Real Baby Shower: Louisiana Crawfish Boil


Monday, October 11, 2010


You know that on Bump Smitten we often gush about the mouth-watering sweets or the incredible details that pop up around every corner in the BEA-UTIFUL photographs we feature. Heck, we'll even go on and on about the font used in custom-made invitations. It's so easy to get swept away in all the incredible details that can go into a shower. But, every now and then we'll get a special email -- a little photographic reminder if you will -- that makes us fall in love all over again with what a baby shower is really all about ... friends, family, and little kiddos, breaking bread (or crawfish in this case) -- just having a grand old time celebrating the soon-to-be-bundle of joy. And, that's just what happened when Amanda Mae sent us some photographs from the Louisiana-style baby shower she planned for her friend Jen.  So, rather than keep blabbing about this cool shower, we're going to just allow Amanda's sweet photos say everything that we're thinking ... and hope that you too get swept up in the candid "kick-back" moments Amanda so lovingly captured.

From Amanda ... It was for my friend Jen who grew up in Louisiana so we had a Louisiana craw-fish boil in our friend's backyard! It was co-ed and there were lots of kiddos there. It was "kick back" and a lot of fun!

We couldn't have said it better, Amanda!

YUM! I would love for a baby shower just like this one. It looks exactly like how a shower should be... friends and family and GREAT FOOD. I really loved this so much that I posted a link to this post on my blog as inspiration.
