Today I had the honor of hosting a baby shower for my best friend Annika. She was counting down the last four weeks of her pregnancy when I realized we hadn't done a shower in celebration of this new life she was bringing into the world! If you know me, you know I am a sucker for baby showers (even if I always end up hosting) so it was a must (Even though I'm hosting one the very next weekend? Why yes, I like my life chaotic! =P).
On the big day today, the beautiful expectant mom is only two weeks from her due date (although most of us are voting that this week Baby Hannah will make her big appearance). It turned out that God blessed us with the perfect weekend for such an event - what a beautiful, sunny day it was here in Seattle! So we actually moved the party to outside (talk about easy decorating...or twice as hard depending on how you look at it....now my house had to look beautiful and my yard too) so we could load up on our Vitamin D (this is a rare occasion in Seattle).
Our theme for this celebration was "Sweet Treats"! We stuck to snacks and fruit for the buffet and kept things very colorful.
