Some of our sweet friends and family helped host a baby shower brunch for me and our little girl last weekend in Birmingham. It was absolutely beautiful and a day I will always cherish. Sweet, feminine and full of breakfast food--it couldn't have been more up my alley. :)
The booties on the sign-in table were my mom's when she was an infant and the sweater and cap were also made for me and my sister when we babies.
A 'wisdom tree' was also placed on the entry table for guests to leave their words of advice.
Black and white stripes and touches of pink and green were used throughout.
My friend and hostess, Bekah, created this beauty after some Pinterest inspiration. If you can believe it, it tasted even better than it looked!
The menu was all about breakfast and included items such as pancakes, cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit, donut holes, breakfast casserole muffins and grits. Delish!
How cute are these mini pancakes?
And this donut hole topiary? Pretty and tasty!
And it wouldn't be a Southern brunch baby shower with a grits bar, right?
A long, communal table anchored the room and created a cozy space for everyone to gather, chat and eat. Arrangements of pink and green florals were used throughout--including hydrangeas. But that was given, right?
In the beverage department, there was a mimosa bar, coffee punch and my personal favorite, glasses of milk with vintage-inspired paper straws :)
My mom sewed all of the ruffle skirts for the mason jars--such a cute, girly touch!
The favors were one of my favorite details of the shower. Calendar cookies with the due date of our little girl were placed at the door for guests to pick up as they left. I just love how they turned out!
The shower wouldn't be complete without a baby bump shot. Here we are at almost 31 weeks and counting!
Here are just a handful of the people who attended and/or helped host the shower, many spanning back over ten plus years of friendship and one I've known since first grade!
Here's my mom with her baby girl (me) and me with mine :)
Our girl really racked up on sweet goodies! We got such a great assortment of necessities and things too cute for words. There were so many thoughtful gifts.
Posing with just part of the goods.
I think my face basically sums up the day. I felt so blessed and in awe of all of the love for us and our baby girl. Thank you everyone who was a part of it! You'll never know how much it means!
