My Baby Shower Was a Treasure

I had my baby shower on May 5th, and I loved it!
The theme was "Pretty in Pink" and it was just so much fun! 
It turned out better than I hoped it would.
A bunch of us got together and brainstormed, and I had lots of ideas of things I wanted and didn't want, and everyone got some jobs that way no one was overwhelmed (hopefully!) and they all made it possible :-)

So many people helped out with the shower and helped make it into the wonderful event that it was! I really appreciate what everyone did. 

My sister in law Mendy made the invitations
Aren't they darling?!
And she framed these pictures of Michael and I :-)
My mother in law did the fruit and veggie trays 
They were so tasty and looked so good. This isn't a good picture of them though...
My sister Helena did the prizes for the games
I didn't have any pictures of the prizes, but you can kind of see one of them on the shelf in that cute polkadot basket -she went all out with the prizes! 
 I really like this punch idea
And my stepmom made it! It turned out really well. 
and she made the cupcakes, they have pacifiers on top made out of life savers and jelly beans

My sister Amber did the games (which I don't have any pictures of) 
They were really fun and creative! You'll have to take my word for it.
She also made the cake -isn't it beautiful? 
This is the inside

and she did the headband making station.
I don't have the headbands yet so I can't show you pictures. But they turned out really cute!
Amber also brought cute paper for people to write advice on, I'm looking forward to reading it all
 My sister in law Annie did the favors! they are in those cute white boxes
(Don't you love those balloons!)
This is what they looked like, only cuter! I had bad lighting when I took this photo :)
And they tasted really yummy!
(The socks were from my sister Helena:-) 
I love the balloons Annie chose, and all the different shades of pink

 These cute little pacifiers were hanging on the windows
 I love this wreath! Annie let me keep it, and it's hanging in the nursery now! You'll see when I post pictures of the baby's room
Annie did the decorations, didn't they look awesome?!
I also kept that puffy pink strand (I have no idea what it is called!) also, you'll see it in the baby's room. 
I'll post pictures soon! I have some things I want to finish up in there first though
I didn't get a good picture of these hanging things, but they were super cute also! 
and Annie hosted the event at her house

I'm sorry if I forgot anyone's jobs! 
Everyone did so much, it was great!

I had a wonderful baby shower! And I'm so glad that my sister Helena got to come out for it, and that we got to throw a baby shower for her as well :-)
We had tons of fun! I'm glad we are pregnant at the same time.

Thank you all again!
