Over the holidays my mother-in-law, Karen hosted a baby shower for me.  She really put in a lot of effort to make the shower lovely.  My favorite element of the shower was the dessert table.  We had cake, cookies, cupcakes, cinnamon twists, cream puffs, lemon bars and jelly beans.  I’m embarrassed to admit I ate one of everything…ok, not all in the same night, but over the course of the next few days. 

My sister-in-law, Nikki of Lovely Scribbles designed the invitations. 
Karen had pink roses at the table with pearls draped over the vase.  Karen’s good friend Joan helped with all the decorations. 

The cake was super cute, made with fondant and buttercream, to look like a little girl’s dress. 

Pretty bunting that said “it’s a girl”.

Adorable onesie cookies and sugar cookie sandwiches. The little sandwich cookies were SO GOOD.
More pretty centerpieces and an old photo of Erik and I right when we first started dating.  Don’t we look young?
My mother-in-law and I snapped a quick photo before leaving for the shower. 

Erik’s cousin Michelle made me an awesome diaper cake.

Karen had all the guests write advice on a little card for Erik and I.  There were some pretty funny ones.
Pretty, yummy red velvet cupcakes.

Tons and tons of presents.  People are way too generous….and they love to buy cute clothes and blankets for baby girls.  We received so many cute onesies, one piece pajamas, blankets, socks, booties, etc.  Erik and I could barely fit them all in our car on the way home. 

Huge thanks to Karen for hosting such a wonderful shower!!!
