What We’ll Never Forget :
>Katie is my sister-in-law, so it was an honor to throw a baby shower for her and my soon-to-be nephew, Graham.
>I gave Katie a whole list of themes to choose from and she chose ‘Ready to Pop’.
>We used a bunch of balloons, buttons, themed-food, soda ‘pop’, etc. to carry out the chosen theme.
>It was so fun using AED’s wedding decorations to create a stylish, unique baby shower.
>We used an old window frame and shutters to display baby pictures of both Jeff (dad-to-be) and Katie – showing just how cute Baby Graham is going to be.
>We had onesies custom-dyed to match the events’ colors and we hung them from the fireplace mantel.
>Guests were asked to paint a letter block so that Graham would have a whole set of ABC blocks to help decorate his nursery.
>We played a game called ‘Guess the Baby’ and asked guests to bring a baby picture of themselves. Each guest then had to decide which baby was which guest.
>We also played a game where we broke the guests into 4 teams. Each team had to pop their set of balloons, get the letter out of the balloon and spell a word. It was hilarious watching them all try to pop their balloons the fastest.
>Each guest went home with a ‘pop’corn favor, including a shower pouf, bubble bath, a small bottle of champagne, a scented candle and more.

Food was displayed on 2 of our vintage tables in trunks and on pedestal plates. Katie’s Mother-in-Law (my Mom) made a fabric wall to cover the opening from the kitchen into the event space. We made individual letters to spell out ‘Let’s Eat ‘Til We Pop’ for the vintage window frame behind the food. And, we used ‘pop’ themed food, such as popcorn, lollipops, gum balls and more.
Again, thank you to Ali & Garrett Wedding Photography for capturing the event!!
