Living so far away from family can make it difficult to plan things like parties and showers but my mom and sister really made this day so special and Steph and I appreciated it so much. We may have gone the less traditional route by having the baby shower at my house but my sister was truly the sweetest hostess – she brought some super cute decor and games and of course put up with my annoying self about maternity pictures. Somehow my mom was able to pack gifts and a whole slew of other sentimental items in a gigantic suitcase and my friend Victoria drove all the way from Pittsburgh to spend the weekend (and smuggled me in some Chick Fil A lemonade!!).
I expected the baby shower to be on the smaller side and was shocked when almost everyone who lived in the area was able to make it. It meant the world to have so many of my family and friends come over to celebrate our little girl.
our growing little family!
the start of her darling dress collection
baby leblanc’s baby shower mantle! how amazing is that banner my sister made? perfect handwriting
the floral wreath I made. it was a labor of love and I enjoyed every minute of making this!
my mama brought lots of my old baby clothes and stuffed animals. they were perfect decor!
the most hilarious baby shower game – I highly recommend this if you don’t want to go the diaper game route but still want some laughs. so funny!
even though my dad couldn’t make the shower, he made these amazing baby blocks for us! guests decorated them and seriously some of the girls took the whole party creating the most gorgeous blocks ever. there were a few left over and I am currently having three engraved with her monogram… can’t wait to share those!
drink station and guess the little miss’ arrival chalkboards. thank you to everyone who guessed early or on time haha we need all the good vibes!
one of the baby shower tablescapes (the other was in our kitchen). simple and sweet
let love grow succulent guest favors. again with Sam’s fabulous handwriting! so cute
my friend Farah made these cookies and everyone couldn’t stop talking about them. INCREDIBLE!
This is literally the only picture of my mom, sister and I from the shower – the day was so crazy we didn’t get a good posed one but this is still such a meaningful photo. All three of us (four, really!) with the baby blanket my sister knitted for the little miss. (You can see her Etsy shop here) It’s so soft and beautiful I can’t wait to take pictures of the baby with it. Sam and I were both really attached to our “blankies” as kids so I love that we have this to give to her.
THANK YOU so much to everyone who came for the baby shower and to my mom and sister for making every detail so lovely. I can’t wait for baby girl to get here so yall can come back! :)
