Nautical Baby Shower

Last Sunday my dear friend, Ashley threw me a baby shower!  She decided on a nautical theme, and she put it together beuaituflly!  I was so impressed with her attention to detail, and with all the things she made herself.

Ashley made some paper pom poms herself to hang from the ceiling!  The two in the back of this picture are her creations.

These paper straws were so fun and were the key to her color scheme.  I was so impressed with how all the colors coordinated so well.

I loved how she decorated with nautical-themed onesies!  She gave me these onesies afterward as part of her gift to me, which I loved.  Such a great idea.

She also had a "Message In A Bottle" station, where guests could write me and Baby Boy a message on colorful paper.  Then they rolled them up with some tape to be put inside the bottle.  I thought this was really sweet, and a fun idea to fit with the nautical theme.

All the delicious food, including fruit, homemade fruit dip, vegetables, a cheese ball and crackers, a delicious punch, iced tea, and of course the cupcakes!  And see the turtle and crab in the picture?  Those are actually baby toys, which were also part of Ashley's gift to me!

My sister at my baby shower.  Have I mentioned that she is pregnant too?  She is due with a baby girl a couple months after me, so our babies will be pretty close in age again!

I didn't get great individual pictures of all the guests, but this group shot turned out pretty well!  I felt so blessed and loved by all my family and friends who came.

And this is just me and the bump.  This little boy is so loved already!

It was such a beautiful shower, and it was special to me to have all my dearest family and friends there.  Thank you for all of you who came!

It meant a lot to me that Ashley wanted to throw a shower for me, and all the thought she put into it touched my heart.  And the result was so impressive!  I'm thinking maybe she should become a party planner.  She has been such a great friend, and I'm blessed to have her in my life!  Thank you again Ashley!

What a sweet friend! I am in love with all things nautical so this is right up my alley. Lucky baby boy will look adorable in all of his new clothes. I am so, so happy to hear about your sister's great news, too! I still think of her often and was hoping she'd have another one soon. So much joy to celebrate. You are glowing, Callie. Enjoy these last few weeks.
