On Sunday my family and my girlfriends came together to celebrate my baby shower. It was a small gathering at Ouisie's table. I was very pleased with the results. It was simple yet tasteful, just what I wanted. Blue and white hydrangeas were the flowers of choice and we had building block/umbrella centerpieces. The food was delicious. Guests had their choice of crab cakes or rockefeller oysters for appetizers. The entrees were an ode to our heritage . . . sort of . . . greek salad with salmon, enchiladas and parmesan crusted chicken. The chicken was the neutral dish but it was so good. The cake was so yummy that I didn't want it to end, it was Italian with buttercream icing. The food, cake and flowers were all provided by Ouisie's. They also made the personalized menu cards. V and I made the umbrella centerpieces. As favors my sister made chocolate cake pops, they were so good!
We ate lunch, played games and I opened gifts. Typical baby shower. We played Who Am I?, Who knows mommy best, baby trivia, and baby shower around the world. People also guessed the baby's birthdate (which we won't know until later) and guests decorated pages for an alphabet book. It was such a great shower and 4 hours went by so fast. I am so thankful for everyone who came and to my mom and sister who helped with the planning!
The one thing I forgot to do was hire a photographer so my sister had to take pictures. I wish I would have hired one to capture all the special moments, other than that everything was great!
Outfit details will be revealed at next post . . . stay tuned.
