She’s Having a Baby

January 14, 2010

NOT ME!! Just wanted to clarify that right from the start before any of you crazy people get overly excited… Since about 90% of the couples I know are pregnant or recently had a baby, it seems like somebody is making that big announcement every other day. But not this girl – not yet.

My friend Michelle T. is the “She” referenced in the post title. Her first baby (baby boy Conner) is due on February 7th. This past weekend our friend Emily and I threw a baby shower for her at Emily’s home. There were 25 guests(!!) and we had a really great time. We decided to do a tea party shower and I had picked out a bird-themed invitation, so Emily and I kind of used that as our “theme” for the whole shower. We didn’t want to go overboard on the theme, but I think we had a nice balance, and the result was definitely exactly what we were going for. Observe…

The Invite:

Sorry about the blurry bits, but you know how those crazy stalkers are out there on the interwebs

Tea Sandwiches (Egg Salad and Cucumber):

If you look closely on the bottom right you can get a glimpse of the biscotti I made too 🙂

Cupcakes (obviously):

The Door Prizes:

Please ignore the random plant that I didn’t think to move out of the way

The Favors (there was loose-leaf tea in two different flavors inside the tins):

One last shot of the super-cute cupcakes (made by Emily):

Don’t worry, there was more food, as well as coffee, tea, punch, etc… but I just wanted to give you guys a little taste of the party not a play-by-play in pictures. 🙂
