Tonight I hosted a baby shower at my house for my good friend Camille. It was so fun to plan and put on. Since she is having a girl I went with a "chick" theme. I got the idea from another blog that I am sure many of you have heard of, The Hostess with the Mostest. Her party was incredible and immaculate and mine was simple and sweet. I actually coincidentally chose the same craft paper to mod podge all of the decor by total accident! How funny is that? Wait, am I making any sense right now? I'm tired, it's late. Sorry. Moving on. One of my favorite things about the whole spread was my fruit presentation. Instead of just a Mormon fruit salad I made fruit skewers and stuck them into a giant vase full of jello. Ha! I thought it was clever. Anywho, here are some pictures of the event before everyone showed up.
I have made a few diaper cakes in my day but I was especially proud of this one.
There's the fruit skewers in the jello. Even if you don't like it, you have to admit, it's pretty clever.
It was such a fun night and so many great girls came out to support her. I am really tired now but I feel so fulfilled in a way that is totally different from mothering. Isn't that weird? I guess I just like parties and I like when they are a success. On another note, I cannot believe how rad my husband is. He has taken sole responsibility of Jack for the last two days while I have worked to get everything ready and finished. Then after it was all over he even sat down next to me tonight and proceeded to tickle my arm for like an hour. What a stud. Now on to the very last note, can you even believe that I am due in 2 weeks?! Ahhh! It could really happen any day now and I would welcome it. I am sooooooooo stinkin' uncomfortable. Peace.
