Sorry for the absence the past couple days. I’ve been back home to Corpus for my first baby shower for Addison! It was such a fun and crazy weekend, and the shower was so beautiful and a ton of fun. My mom, sisters, and cousin threw it together, and I have to say, it was the best pink baby shower you ever did see.
I told my sisters (before we found out Addison was a girl) that if I was going to have a girl, there was going to be pink, pink, and MORE pink in her life…and I wasn’t joking. Once we had our gender reveal party, my family got together and started brainstorming for the best pink baby shower a girl could ask for. With secret Pinterest boards, sneaky questions, and lots of planning, they came up with such a fun shower for Addison and I. We had a blast.
We had a beautiful dessert table with rice krispy treats, cupcakes, pretzel rods, granola, and my favorite mexican cookie- pan de polvo.
We made a copycat recipe of Neiman Marcus’ chicken salad for sandwiches and had all kinds of other goodies for everyone to eat for lunch (including some fruit kabobs that aren’t pictured- my mom and I worked hard on those haha).
My sister, Arlene, came up with some great games for the shower, because anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE shower games. I mean, who doesn’t love to win stuff? She also made these bags below with the prizes. The winners of the baby shower games had to draw a number from the container and it would tell what prize bag they won.
I tried to go around and sit with everyone for a little bit and chat. My poor feet had been swollen all day from shopping the day before, so I tried to stay off them as much as possible at the shower. We had a good chunk of our family and friends come to the shower, which was great! I hadn’t seen several of the family members in a while, and my friend Sarah (below) and I hadn’t seen each other in over a year at LEAST. We’ve been best friends since the 1st grade!
After the games, my sisters suggested that we take pictures at the photo booth that my mom and dad put together. My sister, Arlene, made all the cute props, and everyone had a blast. I won’t put all the photo booth pictures, but just a few of my favorites. I plan on sending out a photo booth picture with each thank you card that I mail out.
Once all the photo booth pictures were taken, it was time for gifts! I couldn’t wait to see all the cute stuff that everyone had so sweetly given for Addison. We were ABUNDANTLY blessed with cute clothes, nursery decorations, and the essentials. So much pink! Of course, I have a billion more pictures, but here’s just a few of the sweet gifts Addison got.
At the end of the party, all of the guests went home with adorable shower loofahs that my cousin, Kristina, put together. They were a hit and I love that they were a practical gift. Everyone uses loofahs!
All in all, the shower was a huge success and was SO much fun. I am so thankful to have such wonderful family and friends by my side that love Addison and I so much! We are truly, truly blessed.
What was your favorite part of this baby shower?
