Hey all! So, I’m gonna be an auntie (well, again, I’m already an aunt to my 2 adorable nieces). My older brother and his wife are expecting their first little nugget this fall. They live 5 houses down from us (have I not mentioned that my whole crazy family lives on the lake?) and we are so excited they are having a little boy!
My mom and I put our noggins together (and our collection of nautical decor) and decided to go with the classic “Ahoy it’s a Boy” theme for the baby shower. We had the best time putting stuff together for the shower and my mom learned she is a lot craftier than she thought. I even had her using a hot glue gun – Martha eat your heart out!
Here are a bunch of photos from the party I managed to quick snap before the guests arrived. Sorry for the bright back lighting in a lot of the photos I kindly asked the sun to move for my photo shoot…clearly that didn’t work out for me.
Oh and you lucky ducks are getting a few sneak peeks of my mom’s kitchen in these photos. Her house tour is coming soon on the blog!
I made this cute bunting by cutting no less than 10 bazillion triangles out of card stock and threading them with twine. Then I just hand painted the letters on.
This was a breakfast shower so we made lots of yummy muffins, breads and caramel pecan rolls…and some fruit so we could all pretend like we were eating something healthy.
I had fun designing all the food labels, I used pic monkey. It’s a free (mostly) site for editing photos, it’s so easy to use.
We served “Low Tide Ice Tea” and “Sea Breeze Punch” and ice water (party foul – the fancy iced tea container leaked all over the floor).
Our favor bags held these great little nautical notepads and pens.
We wanted to keep things low key, so we just had one game where we just guessed the prices on some random baby items.
We enjoyed our nautical sugar coma inducing breakfast out on my mom’s porch…
not a bad way to spend the morning!
Now about those pecan caramel rolls…
don’t worry recipe coming soon!
