Seattle Baby Shower

When my friend, Karina, offered to throw me a baby shower, I was delighted!  Since moving back to Seattle, I have reconnected with many old friends.  I was looking forward to having a small shower with some close girlfriends and celebrating baby Liam.  Karina told me she had never thrown a shower before, but you would never have known.  The party was perfect; everything I had hoped for!

The invites were made my Tiny Prints (I just love that website)!


The lovely hostess & I


 
Karina did an awesome job with the food & drinks!  Every tasted delicious and was safe for "little miss prego" to eat!  I loved her signs that said what everything was so there was no guessing involved.  The slightly picky eater in me loves this!  While all the guests got to enjoy wine & procescco, I sipped on a blueberry lemonade.  Mmm, can't get enough lemonade right now!  I loved the mason jars and blue striped straws!  The cupcakes came from Trophy and were to die for!  Lately, I've really been into these little cupcake stores.  Next time I'm in the U-Village, I will definitely be stopping in!





I loved how small & intimate this shower was.  It gave me a chance to actually spend time with everyone!  It was a perfect mixture of family, family friends, & friends!  Everyone was so generous, showering Liam & I with many wonderful gifts!  I got some more "too cute for words" outfits along with some great necessities!  A stuffed dinosaur & a soothing giraffe also made an appearance.  Both are hanging out in Liam's crib right now.  I received a handmade quilt, which was particularly special!  I love anything homemade.  My mom gave me another "Mommy" gift, which was a Kathy's bag filled my all of favorite things, individually wrapped of course!  I was like opening my Christmas stocking!!!  There were lots of hair & makeup goodies as well as all things lavender (even lavender I can cook/bake with).  And for my sweet tooth: sea salt carmels & campfire mints!  I will try to limit myself to one-a-day.  The surprise, was a gift card to Spa Paradiso for a prenatal massage followed by lunch with my mom already scheduled for the next week!  I am such a lucky girl!
