There are many different kinds of ways to welcome a baby, and share the excitement with the new parents. Some throw a 'sprinkle' after the baby has been born and the guests bring gifts for both baby and mom. Some do as we did and celebrated by helping Emma prepare for her coming baby.
I had planned to host the shower outside under our beautiful maple trees. Our weather this summer has been so beautiful. But this weekend it got HOT and HUMID, and we didn't want to keep with that plan and make us all feel miserable, so we moved it inside.
Now we've hosted large groups before and we don't blink an eye but never for something where you want to make sure everyone can see the guest of honor.
We ended up moving the big farmhouse table out and bringing a smaller table in. I used the mantel to set up for tea, and the counter for gifts. The food went on the table, along with a strawberry lemonade punch.
Lindsay took a lot of photos, and when I get them, you can be sure I'll post them here!
I can't wait for this sweet baby girl to make her arrival in just a few more months! October is now going to rival May as our big birthday month. Emma is due on the first, my birthday is the 3rd, Kay is due the 6th and her birthday is the 7th! Fun! Fun! Fun!
