The Baby Shower

 It seemed like Christmas was over so fast that before we knew it it was time to get ready for Ashley's baby shower! We spent Monday cooking and cleaning so we could be ready in time for the shower on Tuesday.
The cute invitations!
I made this bow hanger that doubled as a come in sign

Megan made this amazing wreath to hang with the fabric garland I made for the nursery.
Party favors. Everyone got the EOS lip balm and chocolate popcorn and homemade soap!

 We picked Cafe Rio style lunch with chicken and pork, cilantro rice, beans etc. The finale was a bunch of mini desserts. Our favorite thing for a party!
 Pomegrantate/strawberry lemonade and water to drink.
 The gifts were piling up before we even got started because lots of people were unable to attend during the holidays. But they sent gifts and they looked so cute on the table.
After they were opened we made quite a display with her presents.

 So were were all ready to receive our party guests!
We had such fun having lunch and having Ashley open all her gifts and visiting with everyone.
My Faves!
Love this two girls!
It was a great afternoon. It was worth it all. Lots of work and worry but I think it went great. I know we ate well and had lots of fun together! We missed all the gals who couldn't come though. Sadly Christina had to pack up and leave right after the shower but Hayden & Meg got to stay for the rest of the holidays.
