Aqua and Orange Baby Shower

My friends and family threw me a fantastic, vibrant, aqua and orange baby shower last weekend.

To say I was over the moon is an understatement! My bestie Jen {with the assistance of my mom, MIL, and another friend} did an absolutely amazing job with the shower.

 After giving it much thought I decided I wanted to shake things up a bit by having an outdoor shower. Boy did we luck out with the weather! The week leading up to the big day I swear was thunderstorms, thunderstorms, and more thunderstorms. But my home girl, Mother Nature, came through & gave us a beautiful, sunny, dry 75 degree day for the party! Fist bumps to that.

Putting the party crew to work {yes, even the hubbies}.

The shower was held in our backyard.

Trust me, there were times leading up to the party that I questioned what the H. E. double toothpicks I was thinking for allowing it be held at our home but

by the end of it I realized really I am a total genius!

Hello! No trying to figure out how to pack up all those gifts and get them back to your house!

We literally wrapped up decorating as the guests started to arrive. Phew.
I just love the colorful and whimsical vibe the hanging lanterns brought to the tent!

Some table signs I created for the different stations we had set up around the tent.
I designed the signs to play off the shower invites that were sent out.

I just LOVE the backdrop my friend
 created by taping ribbon and scalloped circle cut outs to butcher paper.

Each of the guest wrote a little message to Baby B through out the story book
"You are My Wish Come True."
This book so speaks to my heart.

Can I just say I love when people match their gift wrapping to the color of a party?
I know it's a sickness I have........

In lieu of games, we had the guest decorate onesies and bibs and also had a diaper doodling station where they could leave fun little messages to humor us at 2 o'clock in the morning when we're changing Baby B for like the hundredth time that day.

WHEW!! Photo dump. Do I need to resuscitate anyone out there?

As you can see the shower was a blast and Baby B is so lucky that he'll be surrounded by some wonderful & amazing people who already love him so much!

The past 8.5 months have been such a wonderful but at times scary journey & I can't believe in 3.5 weeks we'll be welcoming this little miracle of ours into the world!

Delightfully Noted Signature
