Oh BOY!

8 Nov

It was this past spring when I found out that one of my best friends, Andrea, is pregnant! From that moment on, I knew I wanted to take on the responsibility of planning her baby shower. I spent months looking at decorations, thinking about themes & bookmarking a zillion webpages that contained ideas I wanted to incorporate (I now have a party planning tab on safari just so I could keep it all organized!).

We found out in July that she’s having a BOY! Mattyx Anthony Nicely is due to come into this world on December 18th & I really hope he comes on his due date- I hear the 18th is a good day for awesome people to be born. ; ) Once I found out the gender, I was able to hone in on color schemes & I was hooked. My apartment was converted into a short-term decoration warehouse & I don’t think anything or anyone could convince me I was going overboard with my planning! We held the baby shower October 3rd at the Marquette Commons & it was a success! I was a happy host but more importantly, I think we finished with a happy mama & happy baby. : )

You can see them in the bottom right corner of the photo of Andrea with her mom & sisters, but I made a TON of these paper poms I found at the Martha Stewart Weddings website. Technical difficulties made it so they didn’t hang from the ceiling like intended, unfortunately, but they’re adorable & affordable. Since you can make them in any tissue paper color imaginable, I’d recommend them for any kind of party! You can also purchase them pre-made from Etsy because they are very time-consuming to make on your own. Woooo I can’t wait to be an auntie!
