Baby Shower Story

Once upon a time there was a centerpiece cake made out of diapers and baby items, and favors for each guest....

.......... and fun balloon decorations......

.........and a table full of many wonderful presents .......

........and another table full of delicious food ...........

.........and cupcakes for dessert!

Many friends, coworkers, and family members came over to spend the afternoon....

.....to honor this very excited young couple.....

....who had begun preparations for a very happy nursery to welcome their baby boy to be........

...............and their story will continue when the BIG DAY arrives........maybe late November or early December............... and this grandma to be will make the joyous announcement all around blog land ......... and a new chapter for a precious new life will begin!

Beautiful, marvellous,
I am as exited as you are, Baby showers are not as famous on this side of the pond as they are in America. Your daughter in law and son had a marvellous afternoon, I am glad for them and for you.

I love wonderful stories - especially when they involve a favorite grandmother-in-waiting.

The shower is perfect, the expectant parents are perfect, the nursery is perfect. And, time is drawing nigh.

And, by the way, your son is a cutie.

Oo Pat thanks for sharing this special time. The nursery is beautiful. I remember setting the cot up so I could make broiderie anglais bumpers for it and thinking "wow am I really going to be a mother". Such an exciting time for all the family. They look so happy.

The food looks wonderful too.

I am so pleased for you and all your family Pat. How lovely to have a new addition to your family in a month or so, you must all be very excited. I love all your photos from the baby shower, what an occasion. I especially love the balloons and the cupcakes. So much effort was put in to make it such a special day for the parents. x
