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!

Decorations:

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

Food:

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


Drinks:

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

Iced Tea
Diet Coke
Water with Orange Slices

Games:

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!

Favors:

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!
