Signs of Adulthood: Hostessing Baby Showers

My friend, Rebec is having a baby girl in September. So on Saturday some sweet friends and I hosted her baby shower in my condo's banquet room.

The shower was amazing! Mainly thanks to the amazing work of my friend, Carey, who did most of the decor.

Look how cute the tables were!


And the brunch food spread was amazing!


Besides the venue, I was in charge of coffee and mimosas (which happen to be two of my favorite things!)

I decided that the champagne glasses needed a little flair so before the shower I made some adorable (if I do say so myself) baby-themed wine charms.


Here's a closer look...


These were actually really inexpensive and easy to do. I just bought a couple colors of curling ribbon and these little table sprinkles from party city. Then I just threaded the charms, tied them on the glasses, and curled the ends of the ribbon. That way each glass had a unique charm and ribbon to people would know which mimosa or OJ was theirs.


I loved it!

Can I just say that the mom-to-be was so adorable and tiny! Here were are together...


And here she is with her loot...


I wish I'd taken more pictures of all the super cute clothes baby clothes that she got! All that cute pink stuff just melts your heart.

Here's me with a couple of my friends. Hair stylist and party planner extraordinaire, Carey, is on the right.

What a pretty baby shower. You guys did a great job.

I know exactly what you mean though. One day your doing bachelorette party's every other weekend and wedding showers galore the next moment your setting up baby showers. Its insane how fast time goes by.

I bet your friend loved her shower. :)
