Nicole's Baby Shower

This past Sunday a few girls and I hosted a baby shower for our dear friend Nicole.  Nicole is expecting a baby girl this May and we had so much fun planning this shower.  Alison's friend from MF Creative Designs designed the invitation and all the matching paper products which really set the theme of the party.  We were going for a vintage feel and I think we pulled it off.  We asked all guests to bring a book instead of a card which was a great way for Nicole to stock her bookcase with fun reading material for her and her sweet little girl.

We decorated the house with small potted plants, vintage books and pink fabric banners.  




 We showcased a few baby pictures of the future parents to add a little personal touch :)  



We kept the food fairly simple since it was a 2 o'clock shower and served mini quiches, fruit salad, and a cheese ball.  For dessert we picked up Lemon Tarts from La Madeline and Bunditnis from Nothing Bundt Cakes which are always a hit!



We served peach tea and a white strawberry sangria that seemed to disappear rather quickly... :)

  We played a game where each guest received an ice cube in their drink that had a frozen baby in it.  The first person to have their baby melt had to say, "My water broke!" 



We also played another game where guests were each given a piece of paper where they had to finish the nursery rhyme.  We thought many of the moms would have gotten them all quickly but we managed to stump everyone!  


And now for a few pictures of the pretty Momma to be :)

Time for presents!




It was such a fun day and I'm so glad we could shower Nicole and her sweet baby girl.  Can't wait to meet her this May!!
