Alison's Baby Shower

A few weeks ago Nicole and I hosted a baby shower for our good friend, Alison, who is expecting her first baby this July.  We are so excited for Alison and Mark and had a blast putting this shower together.  Alison and Mark are not finding out the gender (which I love but could never do!!) so we decided to go with a mint and gold color scheme for all the party decor.

My mom generously offered to let us host the shower at her house and we took her up on that!  I also have to give her a lot of credit for the cute party decor.  She found the perfect coordinating papers at Paper Source and made the fabulous banners and fans :)
We found the invitations at Etsy which really set the tone for the shower.  The invitation was very classy and we loved the colors.  Seemed to be the perfect invite for the classy mom-to-be!
We decided to keep things easy and ordered most of the food from Hubell & Hudson.  This was seriously the best idea since the food was delicious and we didn't have to worry about any food prep.  We both had to work the day before the shower and knew it would be difficult trying to get it all together, especially since we both have little ones at home!
For dessert we ordered macaroons from Macarons by Patisse and they were absolutely delicious! They have so many good flavors and we kept with the color scheme when making our selection and they did not disappoint.  We also offered guests to take the leftover macaroons home with them as a favor.
Nicole and I - Had so much fun hosting with this crazy lady.  Enjoyed the planning, the showering, and then the after partying which included way too much prosecco ;) 
My mom and I :) 
And finally with Alison - the beautiful mom-to-be!  It was such a fun day and we loved being able to spoil her for a few hours.  We can't wait to find out if we'll be loving on a he or a she but either way, we're beyond excited and can't wait for her to join the Mommy club!
