Baby showers....not just for babies anymore!

This weekend I was one of 5 lucky ladies that co-hosted a fabulous baby shower for one of our best girlfriends, Meg. Everyone had a special part in this day and it was an honor to host such a fun party. Heather, Britney, Tiffany and Nicole took care of the food and adult beverages, but since I am not the cook of the group I wanted to take care of all decorations, invitations and anything else that might challenge my creativity. For weeks I have eat, slept and breathed this baby shower!

My friend Meg is about the most naturally beautiful and organic kind of person I have ever met and plans on raising Baby Tyson the same way. Because of this I wanted this shower to take on a more sophisticated, yet outdoorsy theme and not be the typical cheesy baby shower filled with table confetti, corsages, games and ice cream punch. Therefore the theme became known amongst us all as "Country Chic." Which included tree branches, mason jars and fresh flowers. Here are some of the pictures from the shower!

Nothing more country than drinking from a Mason jar!

Party favors, the "T" is glued to a blow pop inside the box.

My wonderful friends are all amazing cooks so they really rocked the menu with this one! Our menu consisted of veggies & dip, cheese & fruit with an amazing toffee fruit dip, chicken salad sandwiches, buffalo chicken dip, spinich dip, pasta salad, avocado cheesecake with raspberries, and the newest craze....Cake Pops! I wish I had pictures of them making those! :) And of course no shower is complete without two kinds of punch....adult punch and pregnant punch!

These cake pops were very tasty!

I absolutely love decorating, planning showers and parties. I hope that one day I can make this my dream job!

Love these ladies!
