My Sister's Baby Shower

Where has the time gone? I can't believe that my sister is now over 7 months pregnant and in a few short weeks her baby boy will be here! I have been busy this summer helping her prepare for her little one, and one of the ways I have done this is by throwing her a shower with my mom. This past weekend we celebrated Laur, my sister, and the little one inside her adorable belly. Before I show you some pictures from her shower, I'll show you a few of her maternity shots we took 2 weeks ago.

They think the name is going to start with a "w." Any guesses?

We took a few of her on the dock of our vacation house and then a few of her and her hubby at a nearby park!
We had her shower at a nearby restaurant, The Cedar Hollow Inn. We usually host showers at my mom's house but wanted something a bit classier this time! It was the perfect place. Not only was the room great, but the food was awesome.

I made all of the decorations for the shower! Before we knew the name of her baby boy we called him "the peanut." So, my mom and I decided to decorate using peanuts.

I also made little "trees" with leaves made of paper that matched her nursery colors (orange, blue and grey).

We also set up a little craft station instead of playing games during the shower. My mom and I found white letters of the alphabet and had each guest decorate a letter with fabric, buttons and paper that matched her colors as well. We are then going to hang them above the baby's crib in the nursery!

My sister's best friend, Aftan, made this adorable onesies which have each month of the first year on them. Perfect for photoshoots with baby boy Bryant! If you are interested in buying any, check out her etsy shop!

Last but not least, here are some of the cupcake toppers I made. I had so much fun making these decorations and even more fun celebrating my sister, who is soon going to be a wonderful mama!

I have so many more pictures but don't want to bore you! I'll be back again this week :)
