This past weekend my mom, my SIL's mom, and I threw my SIL (Molley) a baby shower for my nephew Brock Marcus who is due January 18th!! We are so excited as he will be the first grandchild on my side of the family- the first baby of many! Since my brother loves to hunt and be outside they decided to do his nursery in navy, gray, and white with birch trees painted on the walls. The room will also have woodland creatures all around it to finish bringing the outdoors in.
I was in charge of decor and my mom was in charge of food. She chose to do a biscuit bar with different kinds of breakfast casseroles and toppings for biscuits. She also made a semi-naked cake and homemade sugar cookies with her amazing buttercream icing!! Can't even begin to tell you how good it tastes- I may be having a piece right now. Owning it. The tree slices came from Molley's mom and so did all the pine-cones that we had hanging from the ceiling over the tables (no picture sorry!). We grabbed some moss at Michael's and found the cute little deer at Walmart! (Shhh they are Christmas ornaments!!) All of the more rustic woodland themed things will get used in our Christmas decor in our basement coming up soon! I made a paper banner for the gift backdrop and a mini one for the cake (one letter did NOT want to flip around for a picture) and, we all wore little burlap flowers with our title on them. Mine said "Auntie"! I actually had two of her friends ask me to throw their future baby showers! Ha!
I didn't get to take a lot of pictures since I was busy handing out our welcome packets- full of wishes for baby and a letter for each person to personalize to make an alphabet book. We played three games and they went over really well. Molley is so loved by all of her friends and family- the turn out was great around 45 people!! She received a handmade monogram sign from our friend Kelly, a quilt from her mom and aunt, and some Mizzou clothing from the same aunt! I had to add it since it was such a cute picture. Baby Brock will be so so so spoiled!
My mom is going to cover all the little details and planning aspects of the baby shower on her blog! So be sure to check her out and look for that post soon!
