from the book -- for example, the shaving kit for the hubby's scratching face and donuts as rings.
Just plain awesome!
From Whitney... Yesterday i had the pleasure of throwing my adorable friend, megan, a baby shower.
I got the idea for a pat the bunny theme shower and was really excited about all the little details.
Then Craig informed me that no one would know what pat the bunny was (its a CLASSIC childrens book, duh!) but it was too late, i was too excited and there was no turning back. Turns out, most everyone (including Megan, who was the one that really mattered) knew and loved pat the bunny book. So there, Craig. And Jocelyn.
I was also super excited about doing a PINK shower. pink, pink, and more pink. Each page of the touch-and-feel book was incorporated into the shower. So naturally, I had to get a life size picture of Alex (the daddy-to-be) and give him a sand paper beard. The beard was cut into a puzzle with different questions on the back. I had asked Alex a few questions in advance and everyone had a riot listening to his responses. Lets just say one of the questions was "do you remember the nite of conception?" Yup.
I went there. And Yup. He did.
Craig's mom let me borrow some of her vintage children's books. Craig thumbed thru the books and remembered when cheri read them to him. Very sweet. The mirror corner with baby pictures of
Megan and Alex.
Then it was time for presents. Megan opened tons of gorgeous things. Her little girl is one lucky lady. After presents it was DESSERT time. Everyone gathered around for.... "mommy's rings" also known as MY mommy's famous donuts. These babies usually only make an appearance at the halloween donut party but i twisted my mom's arm to get up at 6am that morning to start the process of making a batch. My Aunt Megan made her delicious sugar cookies too. Some serisouly good treats.
Each lady took home a petite vase with a crepe paper flower (spritzed with perfume, of course). Emily and I stayed up late one nite making these little numbers. Fun, but our fingers were raw afterwards. I could not have done the shower without Emily's help. She was such a good little worker elf. My mom warned me not to over do it with decorating the disposable water bottles. Does she not know me? I am gaudy by nature. but honestly, I had a blast planning every second of this shower and watching
Megan have a great time.
