Baby Shower!

Success!! The baby shower went really well and I am SO glad! We had about eleven people there! I had it at a place called Sea Captain's Restaurant in Myrtle Beach. It sits on the ocean so it has a really pretty view!! And the food is amazing! They are known for their Shecrab Soup! (Though I actually don't like seafood at all, I just liked the location!)

And I know there are some of you who think it's a house, but it's a restaurant, I promise!

We only played a few games, I wanted to keep it simple since we had it at a restaurant. I found Old Wives Tales Trivia, Baby Shower Price is Right (this one was a lot of fun!), and Nursery Rhyme Jeopardy! (Jeopardy was every one's favorite I think!! It was mine anyway!) And then we played the game were you can't say "baby" or you get your little clothes pin taken away from you! Of course I am TERRIBLE at this game and I was the first one to lose my pin!!

But anyway without further ado, meet our Mommy-to-be!


Here is what the cake looked like! It is soooo gorgeous! I gave a plate that I had gotten for the shower to the lady who does all my cakes (she did my wedding cake) and it looks EXACTLY like the plate! It was crazy! On top of that she has such reasonable prices and the best part is they taste SO good! I still get compliments on how great my cake was from my wedding!

This side said Starlynn Bree is on her way!!


And last but definitely not least, I am SO proud!! Here is the diaper cake!! I hope you think it is as cute as I think it is!! I fell in love with it!


Mommy loved the diaper cake, which to me, makes it all worth it!!


We all had such a good time! We even had two guys come to join us!! They were such good sports!!



Doing this was a lot of fun! I love to make people happy and I really, truly hope that she had a good time!! And even though I ran out of time and had to do everything at the last minute, I still love to plan, decorate, and give a party! I would love to do this more often!!

I hope you are all having a great weekend! I'm going to go work on my photo book now!!!

I love your diaper cake!! It turned out so cute. Before my daughter Brianna's baby shower I hadn't even heard of a diaper cake. I found them on the internet and made her's. It turned out to be really fun too. I'm glad it turned out so well. Oh, and I'll have to check out SITS and see what it's all about. I've seen it around but never had time to check it out. Cindy

Cute cakes. Sounds like you had a lot of fun playing those baby shower games. Did you get any of the men to play?

That diaper cake is cute! You did an awesome job. I am sure the mommy-to-be was thrilled.

mrsmouthy said...

I am so impressed as I tried to make a diaper cake for my friend's shower last year and ended up giving her an opened bag of newborn diapers, some of which were misshapen and had tape irremovably stuck to them, along with an apology at my inadequacies. You rock!

And look at all your comments, girl! How exciting!
