Nadine's baby shower!

I put on my baby shower hosting shoes for the second time this year — and I think the event went well! I feel so... domestic?

Friends Kirsten, Sally, Ann and I threw a little luncheon soiree for Nadine. Among Nadine's requests were a laid-back atmosphere, nothing too fancy (think the opposite of cucumber sandwiches and crumpets) and nothing too embarrassing. Fair enough! (Oh, and if you see a monkey theme, it's because of a monkey love and jungle nursery theme.)

The agenda:
Nadine clearly enjoyed herself — and the guests brought 'lil forthcoming "Baby Z" some awesome things (bottles, dishwasher baskets, clothes, blankets, booties, socks, toys, books and more).

Here are some photos from the day:

THE diaper cake. Kudos to Kirsten for suggesting 
(I had no idea about these things).

Gorgeous flowers (hydrangeas and daisies mostly)

The hot mama-to-be was okay with us serving drinks of all varieties.


Cohost Ann with friend Karen.

Cute cake for Baby Z.

Karen, Sally and me.

What a sweet shower! I love the stroller cake and the cute monkey stuff!

Monkeys are a very popular theme in nurseries. I just saw a really cute picture of one in this nursery contest.
