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.)
- Chicken and steak fajita bar lunch
- Centerpieces: flowers arranged by Sally and a diaper cake
- Games: "B is for Baby" (a Scattergories-type game) and the belly size guessing game using string
- Activity: the always-popular painting of onesies
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)
