A few weeks ago I got the best baby showers thrown for me! As I’ve been calling my little guy Bee (since we’re keeping his name a secret–only family knows!) it only seemed natural to make the shower bee themed! It may seem weird to you, but I helped out with my showers. In my head, I had all these awesome and amazing people coming together to celebrate my little Bee and buying him all sorts of goodies, that I wanted to help out. Yessss, it’s also about the momma, but let’s face it…it’s mostly about the little baby growin’ in my belly, anddd not to mention….I’m a mad crafter!! This kind of stuff is fun for me. So, I had no problem helping out! I didn’t help out with my bridal shower–I feel that’s a little different. It’s a shower specifically for the bride…I would have felt weird helping out with that. So, I told my mom and sister I wanted to do a bee themed, and NOT a cutesy cartoony bee theme. I wanted something fabulous and beautiful! And I got just that! 🙂
I made the invites, which I loooved, and stared at forever after I made them! (I removed the address for obvious reasons!) I made a cute email for the RSVPs!
We covered plain tin cans with some cute honeycomb paper and wrapped some bakers twine around them for the utensils.
Chocolate dipped pretzels!
My *Bees Knees* preggotini!
Loved these cupcakes I made! They came out exactly how I imagined 🙂
Beautiful and delicious cake my momma made for me 🙂
Love my sunflowers 🙂
Can you take a guess at how many candies were in the bottle?! Everyone was waaaaay off!!
Loved this activity! Cant wait to read all the silly things people wrote! 🙂
I loved reading through these and can’t wait to find out who’s right (or at least close)!
Can’t wait to read these to my little guy one day 🙂
To anyone who’s planning a shower–or any party for that matter–do this!! It’s so helpful for when you write out your thank you cards (which I still have yet to do because I’ve been super dreading it lol)
My ABSOLUTE favorite activity we had! I purchased the alphabet in all different shapes and sizes, and had my guests paint them with the colors of Bee’s nursery! I CAN’T wait to see them up on the wall!
Workin’ so very hard!
As soon as I got home I layed them all out to get an idea of what they’d look like. I’m in LOVE!
We WANTED to do the “my water broke” ice cube game (look it up if you don’t know about it–it’s hilarious!!) but we forgot about them until the end of the party And then they were just super creepy!
All my “girls from the block”!
The “two Nicole’s” 🙂
3–actually 4–generations! 🙂
My bestest friend in the whole wide world AKA sasterrrr
Loved seeing all my friends and family!
“So when you make the food, you put it in here and then you can freeze it!”
Cloth diapers baby!!
Showing off my BEAUTIFULLLLL travel system stroller that I’m totally obsessed with and can’t wait to use!
My friend took one of Bee’s sonogram pictures and stuck it in this “Love At First Site” frame. LOVED this gift! 🙂
I wish I could share all the pictures of what I got because this stuff was SOOO CUTE!!!!
I’m cracking up because after looking at endless “what to pack in your hospital bag” lists, Depends came up a lot, and so I’ve been getting free sample packages sent to just about everyone I know so that I didn’t have to actually go to the store and buy them……but apparently my sister got them for me…and made me open it in front of everyone!!!! Love herrr….
I loved the way we packaged the favors up! Of course inspired by Pinterest 🙂
Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of everything in the favor bags, but I made these necklaces for everyone 🙂 I wear mine almost every day now! There were also little beehive soaps my mom made and bath salts that smelled amazing!
I’ve got the whole world in my hands 😉
I loved my showers and loved the beautiful energy that came with them 🙂 I wish I could see my amazing friends and family more often, and am so lucky to have them all in my little man’s life!
