[Babycakes] Baby Shower!

This past Sunday, my friends and family came together to shower our little baby with love (and lots presents!).  My step mother in law did a fabulous job as host with some help from my momma and my girlfriends. 


The shower was exactly how I pictured it - low key, casual, and inviting!  I'm not a fan of the overly formal showers where you are stuck at a table eating fancy plated meals.  I'm a grazer and since I'm a social butterfly usually mingling with friends, I prefer to pick at my plate then have a full 3 course meal.  So the buffet of hors d'oeuvres and dessert table were perfect.  The hosts definitely delivered a shower that was up my alley.

Since the nursery is slate with yellow, coral, and aqua accents, they went with the yellow and coral theme. It's amazing how closely the shower actually matches my last "Shower Inspiration" post!





We got some wonderful gifts for baby Ashlynn, everything from the practical to the "must haves" and the adorable to the sentimental. Now, I'm working on organizing it all!







I'll be posting through the week about the  individual details - including decor, food, favorite gifts, and what I wore!


The husband and I couldn't be grateful for our generous and loving family and friends!  Our baby girl is going to be so loved when she arrives!
