This past weekend I was lucky enough to throw a baby shower for a dear friend. She is welcoming her second child, Liam, very soon and I wanted a chance to be able to shower her with love, prayer, and of course gifts!
I started by creating an invitation to be handed out to the women we both serve with at church. (don’t mind the green – I didn’t think the world should know my address/phone number)
I am not sure where the “Oh Boy” theme came from but for some reason it was what came out of me when making the invite. So, naturally I wanted to carry that through the shower.
“Oh Thank You” was placed by the presents and “Oh Yum” signs labeled all the food and drinks. All the signs and banners were made by yours truly. I will get you links to those soon
The food all consisted of “oh”s – like an OreO cake, CheetO’s, dOnuts, MarshmallOw’s, Orange sherbet punch, etc.
Snacks on all the tables were “Oh” shaped cereal. As I looked through the pictures I realized I am a much better photographer when I am not hosting the event. I didn’t get any pulled back shots of the food/décor. Just know it was so pretty and relaxed.
The mom to be has a 7 year old daughter – so moms were encouraged to bring their little ones. I picked up hoola hoops and bubbles to keep the little ones entertained!
All in all it was such a fun, relaxing, gorgeous afternoon celebrating an amazing mom!
