A couple weekends ago, two sweet friends threw the cutest baby shower for the Babies Blue. The theme was “A Tea for Two: Baby Boys, that is!”
The hostesses planned the most adorable tea, complete with scones, tea sandwiches, several choices of tea, and lots of other yummy treats. They used the empty tea canisters for flower arrangements–such a good idea!
The babies received so many thoughtful gifts, from a My Little Snugabunny Bouncer to diapers to huge stack of adorable clothes, sleepers, and blankets. I came away feeling very loved and much more prepared for these little men.
In addition to some local friends and family, many of our friends from work came, including two of my former bosses. I was flattered to have two former bosses who still like me enough to come to a baby shower for me! :)
One of my favorite details of the shower was the “Wishes for Baby” sheets that all the guests filled out. It was such a fun idea, and Mr. Blue and I loved reading through everyone’s different wishes. We are going to save all of the Wishes papers for the babies to look at someday.
It was the perfect way to celebrate with friends, and I’m even more excited for our boys’ arrival now. As an added perk, it gave my mom a great excuse to come to town for a week, attend the shower, and help with a multitude of baby projects.
As you can see, the baby bump is getting quite large and uncomfortable, so I’m very glad that we had the shower at 28 weeks. Any later and I would have been pretty miserable trying to move around, much less keep my knees together like a lady when I was sitting down!
Did you have a baby shower? Was there a theme?
