O Baby! Here We Go Again!

Yup, here we go again! We're expecting yet another little baby in the family! My youngest daughter, Jennifer, is having a baby boy at the summer's end! Here are some pics from the baby shower I hosted for her a few weeks back in my home. It was supposed to be an outdoor event held in the garden, but rain that week changed our plans.  The theme, you can see is "the garden."

Above clockwise: paper bunting, coconut garden cake with chocolate ganache filling, tissue poms and lanterns (that's Jenni's engagement photo), Jenni & Jake the dog in front of buffet table, baby photo tree made from branch, Jenni & friends, lavender sachet favors, baby boy onesie clothes line, paper pixie flowers..

Below: Jenni & friends, the Momma's Chair-of-Honor, paper "oh baby" and "oh boy" flowers in bud vases, lovely Jenni and her lovely cake, tiny hand-me-down "chucks" (worn by both my other grandsons) hung in the doorway like mistletoe, frog diaper cake, white petunia centerpiece, gift time, tissue paper poms and more pretty paper bunting in the middle.

It was perfect! No silly games--just a lovely gathering of friends and family, great Spanish food (menu post to follow soon) and baby talk in a beautiful indoor garden!
