Baby Shower

The Girls

Torie, Patti and Rita threw me a baby shower on June 12, 2011. It was held at Rita’s big 5 bedroom house out in Creekbridge. I invited a few family members and some close friends. I didn’t realize that it was graduation time so quite a few people couldn’t make it. But it was still a good turnout and my party-planners did an excellent job!

Rita made the invitations and the decorations. Its a Mommy and Daddy bunny and a baby bunny with an umbrella! Torie also made me a binder of guest’s well wishes and predictions for the new baby.

Shower Invite

Its a Bunny Family

I love how you can see the bunny butt! LOL!

Gifts and Wall

When i walked in i see a big wall of my belly shots! A little embrassing but still cute. Here’s all my gifts too!

Bunny Cupcakes Peanut Butter Flavor

Torie made these cute bunny cupcakes! Marshmallow body and chocolate bunny ears!

Diaper Cake & Carrot Favors

This is the diaper cake Rita made, and the carrot favors Patti made. Inside was chocolate crisps wrapped in a bunny foil.


We enjoyed some snacks (chips, fruit, veggies, crackers and cheese) and soda, while everyone filled out a piece of paper with advice, well wishes, and guesses on when the baby will come.

There was also a baby pool calendar where you can bet money on when the baby will come.

Guess the Date

Of course Patti but the baby will come on HER birthday! =)

Paula and Her Zumba Shirt Carrie's Poop Deck!

Everyone decorated a onesie using fabric pens. A few people said they’d take theirs home to decorate and send back to me.


Here are the finished shirts!

Heres all my gifts after being opened. There was a diaper raffle so i am pretty set with diapers – least for a little bit! Candace won the diaper raffle. We also played the guess the belly size game with the ribbon. Amy won that one!¬†Most everyone’s guesses¬†were “too big” but Amy’s was “just right!”

I had a fun time with my friends and family. I still can’t believe i will actually have to use all these tiny clothes and smelly diapers in just a couple of months. How will i do it all? Glad to have a few friends that can give me advice!

On this day..
