I recently helped throw a baby shower for one of my best friends, Rebecca and her soon to be here son, Ogden.
I threw a shower back in February as well for my Karis and her son, Malakai. Back 2 and a half years ago I planned and threw my BFF, Tricia's shower for her twins.
This is what I have found- I love showering! Making, planning, baking, decorating, organizing,buying, partying- I love it all! (even if the gluten-free cakes explode in my oven and almost burn my house down.)
I homemade a lot of Rebecca's shower decor. Some would say I have too much time on my hands but I love designing and creating on my free time! What a creative outlet! It was supposed to be an outdoor event since everyday that week had started with glorious sun-filled, cool mornings but on the morn of the shower I awoke to crazy downpouring rain. We had the shower at one of our pastor's houses and they keep their garage in better shape than I keep my home on a good day. We relocated to the garage and had a wonderful time. It was so soothing to hear the rain falling while we were eating and celebrating. Rebecca is the most easy going appreciative person I know so she really enjoyed the gathering and even kept some of the decorations for Ogden's room! There was food galore and sweets everywhere. Delish!
The point- I love throwing parties. Especially when they are for someone I love. I'm pretty sure I would love them even more if I had an unlimited budget and did this for a part- time living.
This was Rebecca's mommy corsage..it said, "Ogden's Mom"

Baby Bennett Bath Salts that I made. Jasmine and Honeysuckle scented!
Centerpieces- they had river rocks and floating/sinking flowers in them
Some of the luxurious yummies we had!
The gift table. The flags were super easy to make! She kept them and we hung them in his room!
Sweet little guy..
