Melissa and Little Sister’s Baby Shower

This past Saturday I helped host a baby shower for my friend, Melissa. She and her husband are expecting their 2nd child, a baby girl, in 5 short weeks or less. The baby, or as Melissa refers to her, little sister, does have an actual name, but they have chosen not to share it with anyone (family included) until the baby is born. They did this with their son, Caedmon, as well.  Josh attempted to bribe Caedmon with toys, candy, etc., if he would just tell us the baby’s name. Caedmon replied with, “Her name is sister.” Ha!! I’m going to just throw my vote out there and guess her name starts with either an A, C, M, S, or R. No particular reason other than I feel like guessing those letters. :) Here are a few pictures from the shower!

Melissa with the hostesses! (Me, Sara, Melissa, Jenna, and Jill)


We borrowed this moss wreath from Jill’s wedding decorations. I added the pink bow to make it a little girly! This is the wreath Sarah and I made one night a couple of weeks ago. It was super easy!


Pink gerber daisies on the table in the foyer.


The food table! I just used the same moss from the wreath to make the little moss balls that were hanging above the table.


We had lots of yummy food! We made several of Melissa’s pregnancy cravings as well as some of her other favorite foods.



Some of the shower guests watching her open gifts!


Melissa got so many wonderful gifts! Now we are just waiting on that sweet girl to arrive to use all her new things. We cannot wait to meet her!
