Last weekend we had an amazing baby shower thrown by our wonderful friends and family. It was co-ed (and child-friendly) and well attended by a large contingent of Matt’s family from Oregon and Washington, the few members of my family who live within a reasonable traveling distance, and a whole bunch of our Seattle friends. So much fun!
And check out this spread:
Taco bar, all kinds of finger foods, chocolate cake, carrot cupcakes (the ones for which I made the stand), assorted beverages (champagne or sparkling water with frozen strawberries!)… looks like everyone was enjoying it all quite a bit.
So many presents for the baby!
And I made some little gift bags for our guests as a thank-you.
We had a onesie-painting station where people could customize a onesie or bib with fabric paint. They are all great!
I think it’s fair to say we all enjoyed ourselves.
When we received a UW hat for our son, there was a small outcry from the Oregon crowd (or maybe just Matt’s dad). My sister-in-law bridged the divide by making both Husky and Duck onesies. Matt and I are UW grads, so our kids will probably grow up rooting mostly for the Huskies with their dad.
Someone was smart enough to get all of the family together for a picture.
Super special thanks to these folks for organizing everything and making/bringing all the food. Everything was excellent. We love you!
Thanks also to my mom for sending the flowers. She and my sister were sad not to miss this, but they live much too far away to fly in for just one weekend. ’Grandma’ and ‘Auntie’ will be visiting this summer once the baby is born. And of course, thank you to everyone who came to the shower! It was a really special day for us.
