my baby shower to celebrate little baby henry!

clearly we're ready to be parents....

At 35 weeks pregnant on April 20, 2012 my husband and I decided to be absolutely insane and tackle on hosting a co-ed baby shower party for our family & friends.  We provided the entertainment, a goof booth, beer, wine, and a dessert spread and had our guests totally pot luck dish it! There was tons of food and lots of variety! DELISH...It was a totally fun night though filled with yard games, laughing, good food, lots of giggles in the goof booth, and the showering of gifts. We are so grateful to the friends and family who came to support us. I was so fortunate to have some of the most talented etsy vendors be apart of our celebration. Love something? Look below for their etsy and FB information!

First off, I LOVE LOVE LOVEEEED my gorgeous hot air balloon necklace from Katrinaosity!

Next up... the SUPER TALENTED "Cookie Monday's" made most of the burlap banners with cloth fabric applique's. Her banners were SO well constructed and everyone complimented on how sweet and whimsical they looked! They are perfect for any event and weddings too!

Since I have a business account with Pennock Wholesale Floral distributor, I was able to get the most gorgeous flowers the day of! $120 well spent on several different types- you know I had to have my billy buttons- craspedia!

The sweet canary canisters and pails were from micheals- 50% off at $3/each.

The chairs & tables were provided by Luxe Party rentals! They are a BRAND NEW local company in Jacksonville with super competitive prices.

the favors said:

"cuddly as a cloud

gentle as the night

a baby boy is the sweetest delight

almost as sweet as a cold glass of tea,

so sit down and enjoy from baby and me."
