Baby Showers

I know that some women have 4-5 showers. I..ahem...only had 3 and each one was different from the other and fabulous. Our first shower was in Texas (in January 2009), hosted by Tom's mom, and attended by most of Tom's family. Mary and Aunt Abby spent days decorating, cleaning, shopping, planning, and preparing for the shower. We really appreciate all of their hard work as the shower was a hit! Mary had this great idea of posting everyone's baby pictures on the wall and participants had to guess whose baby picture it was. I have to say...that was quite a challenging game!

Our second shower was in the Bay Area (in March 2009), hosted by mom and Helmut, where mostly our friends attended. The shower was held at Chef Yu's, a Chinese restaurant in Sunnyvale. Mom decorated our private room with baby items she knit, such as a baby sweater, teddy bear, and mobile. She also used her knit balls to decorate the table and gave them away to guests with children or those who are expecting. We ordered a half sheet of cake from a Chinese bakery that was quite yummy!

Our last and final shower was held in Portland (in April), where most of my female friends from law school attended. The theme was ducks, and yellow and white. I made a Caesar salad, a fruit salad, pesto penne pasta salad, veggie tray, and Is it really better than sex? cake using Paula Deen's recipe. I also ordered tea sandwiches and a dessert tray from Grand Central Bakery and served iced tea, lemonade, coffee, and water. The party favors were lemon-scented, duck-shaped soap with a Stampin' Up! image on the outside (of course) and we played 5 different games (oh my!).
