On Throwing My First Baby Shower














I threw a baby shower for my Sister-in-law, this weekend. It was the first shower I've ever thrown, and I was really pleased with how it turned out. For the record, I made and decorated the cake and cupcakes, by hand. I've never done anything like that in my life, and I'm not sure what made me try my hand at it this time, but I'm glad I did. Even though I spent days baking and piping icing, it was totally worth it! I was so proud to say I made everything, myself, and I think it made the shower seem more personal and meaningful, knowing everything was homemade. 

Here, I'm just sharing a few pictures I snapped a few weeks ago in the same dress I wore to the shower, and just a couple pictures from the shower. There were lots more people there, but I just wanted to share a few of me, my family, and the guest of honor, Rachael. This was a unique shower, in that Rachael wanted to invite women and their husbands and children. We had around 15 children running around, at one point, most of which were girls, so the unicorn cupcakes and cake, and pastel decorations were definitely a hit! Rachael is obviously having a little girl, and we're so excited to love on her little baby soon! 
I hope you're all having a wonderful Monday, so far! Thanks for reading!
