I don’t consider myself a very crafty or creative person. Everyone always says, “But, your photography is creative”. Yeah, that’s where my creativity stops. So, when Jill and I decided to co-host a baby shower for her sister and my good friend, Jamie, I had a ton of great ideas, but I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to pull it off. We worked and worked and worked and I think I made 1001 trips to Michaels, but I think we pulled off the vision we were going for! The theme of the shower was based around Liam’s nursery colors. Jamie sewed some awesome bedding and the fabric had circles. So, I also incorporated circles into the theme as well.
It was a picture perfect, Southern California day for the shower. I was worried about it being too hot or too windy or even too cold. But, it ended up being sunny and 85. Pretty perfect if you ask me! Besides it being a beautiful day it was just so much fun to celebrate Jamie and Baby Liam. It was great to catch up with old friends and make some new ones. Now we just have to wait a few more weeks for Baby Liam to make his appearance! You can bet he will be a well photographed baby!
It’s hard being a hostest and getting all the shots, but I tried!
Even though they were the wrong colors I reused the fun pinwheels I made for Brayden’s first birthday
This is before all of the presents I made baby onesies with little iron on designs. Pretty easy with my fancy Cricut!
Contrary to popular belief the Cricut doesn’t cut fabric. At least I couldn’t figure it out. So I made stencils with it and traced the fabric.
L is for Liam!
Awesome diaper cake made by 4 Leaf Boutique. Thank you, Erynn!
I wish I had taken a wider shot of this, but I was too lazy to change my lens. I copied an idea that I saw from Joyful Weddings and Events. This was not easy to make, but I loved the final product!
Cake from Beverly’s Best. Yummy!
Cake topper from Target
Flowers by Jenny B! They were so perfect!
Wish I had taken a wider shot of this as well
I always wanted an occasion to use mason jars as cups
We went for blue and orange drinks. Unfortunately the blueberry sangria wasn’t really blue
I know it’s faux pas to ask the guest of honor to do anything for their own shower, but since Jamie makes such awesome invitations we asked her to make the party favors. How cute are they?
And here’s one of Jill, Jamie, Baby Liam, and me
Hope everyone had fun!
