A few weekends ago, I was invited to a baby shower. The shower was held at Kathy's place. Kathy is the mother of the mother to be. I think that was the first baby shower, I'd ever been invited to.
It was a very well done shower. The weather co-operated that day, and the tables and chairs moved from inside the house to the back yard.
The guests were served a Mexican lunch of taco salad and tropical fruit smoothie. Nice! I was quite hungry and forgot to take pictures of the food and the table setting!
The cake. The theme of the shower was jungle animals.
This baby quilt was the inspiration for the theme.
The fire place was done up with baby pictures of Christina, the mother to be, and her sisters and some baby clothes.
This baby will be Kathy's first grandchild and as such she just cannot wait for the arrival of the baby! She has even done up a nursery in her house!!
My contribution to the nursery was the blue gingham valance and the yellow gingham bumper pads on the crib. I sewed them for Kathy.
Christina and the cake. Her baby is due on April 1st. She and her husband chose not to know the sex of the baby. They want to be surprised. Good for them!
Because they do not know the sex of the baby, the baby stuff that we bought for them were blues, yellows, and greens.
There were a lot of gifts! In fact, everything she had listed on the baby registry was taken up. So those who were late, bought other baby stuff not listed in the registry. I think she received too many receiving blankets!
There were also some games and prizes to be won from the games. I did not win anything. Just wasn't my lucky day, I guess!
Every one went home with a little baby shower favor. It was a little packet of 3 animal shaped cookies.
All in all, a very nice baby shower.
