I just had to write a post to brag on my sisters and mom for a few minutes because last weekend, they threw me and our little one the cutest baby shower! My husband, myself and our newest addition to the family feel so loved by all the overwhelming support we’ve experienced thus far, and she hasn’t even made her debut yet!
The shower took place at my mom’s house in Wisconsin, and they did such a good job incorporating some of the details and colors of the baby’s nursery. Check out a few of the fun details below.
First and foremost, I have to give a shout out to the florist my sister found. She’s a teacher by trade and just does this on the side, and wow is this lady talented! Her company is called Local Flora if you live in the Milwaukee area and want to check her hour. I loved all the texture that was used in the bouquets.
The shower took place at 11 AM, so guests noshed on brunch food before gifts and games (one of my personal favorite fares), and they also incorporated not one but two of my favorite desserts: cake pops and ice cream. Because a pregnant girl has to have dessert options, right? I didn’t get a picture of the surprise ice cream bar that concluded the shower because I was too busy indulging, but I did get a picture of the beautiful cake pops. They were made by the same woman who created them for my bridal shower. They seriously are almost too pretty to eat….almost!
In true McCann girl fashion, there was a mimosa bar, or a Mom-osa bar for this particular party. And since I couldn’t partake in the real deal, my mom and sisters made sure to get me a sparkling cider to be able to use for my drinks…so sweet!
The girls also purchased decorations that coincides with the nursery decor, and I got to take some of those home to be able to hang in the nursery (when we get that finished…), It was nice to be able to dual purpose those decoration items.
Our little girl is so lucky to be able to join into our family, and it’s very fitting that we are having a girl. As you can see from this picture, my family is full of girls, including my two sisters and I, cousins, daughters of cousins, etc. It just made sense that we are blessed to have a little princess! We are so grateful for the love and support that we have already experienced, and we can’t wait for her arrival! Stay tuned for November 14th!
