Lauren's Baby Shower

I love hosting a good party!  It's a ton of work and stress, but the end result is so much fun and I get such a thrill pulling off an amazing shindig!!!  Here's a peak at our lovely brunch soiree! My co-host is the spunky, witty Meredith Dieppe.  She's such a good friend she remembered my favorite wine is Rose and brought a bottle of Rose Champagne to sip on during the party preparations.  Awe, how thoughtful!
I'm not including any guest pictures, but just know that Momma-to-be Lauren looked as lovely and happy as ever.  Pregnancy definitely suits that little lady!


Tissue paper pom poms - yes, all handmade!  As always, the more the merrier!

Paper lanterns- purchased at Party Plan-It
Glam diaper cake - made by my mom (GiGi) and yours truly

Votives with pink and green sprinkles - thanks Pinterest!
Pink balloons along entryway - didn't snap a pic of these but they're on my Pinterest account
Bouquets of flowers


Donut Hole Trees

Cinnamon Rolls

Blueberry Brie Bites

Fruit Kebabs in Flower Pot

Mini Quiches 
Chicken and Waffles with Maple Syrup and Powdered Sugar

Strawberry Cheesecake Morsels


Mimosa Bar - Champagne, Orange Juice, Orange Mango Juice, Strawberries, Frozen Grapes, Blueberries

Iced Tea
Diet Coke
Water with Orange Slices


Name That Baby - Lauren and Chris haven't exactly settled on a name yet....  Olivia Kate was the winner by a landslide!
Guess Momma's Girth! - I won this one! Right on the money!  Hee hee!


Personalized M&Ms

It was a bit crazy getting everything done by 10am.  Brunch showers should not be thrown by the faint of heart!  Once everything was done, and everyone arrived, I had a marvelous time.  It was the perfect amount of people (11 total) and a wonderful group of ladies.  The food tasted especially tasty to me since I haven't had anything "good" to eat in what feels like an eternity.  I cheated and had one of everything!  I even got to hold a sweet sleeping baby, thanks to Caycee.  Heaven!
