Baby Shower

Saturday morning Brooke and I threw a little baby shower for Emily. It was super simple and very fun. We had it on the back patio at Axis Cafe. For decorations we rented a tablecloth and made little arrangements in Weck jars {when it was over everyone took a little jar home.} For favors we filled up these cute green boxes with macaroons from Miette. I’m not too into shower games but Brooke came up with a clever one. She got these little babies and froze them in ice cubes. The first person to melt their baby out of the cube won. I like throwing parties at restaurants because all you have to worry about is the fun part: invitations, decor, and favors.

    I’m with you, you show up with some decorations and voila a party. Then the best part you grab your goodies and go.

    Jordan, I have been peeking at your blog quite a bit in the past week (I especially love the Debi Treloar photos – the rack of clothes makes me want to go buy a new spring wardrobe immediately), and am always very impressed with your content. Lovely, lovely shower pictures!!

    Adorable! I love the colors! Yellow is so cheerful! I had a hard time coming with good shower game material as well – I know we needed something to break the ice (as it was a mixed shower of family AND friends who all didn’t necessarily know each other) – we finally opted for the “guess the poo” chocolate bar melted in a diaper – kind of a shocker game to get everyone laughing. It worked! Looked gruesome though. :)

    I was wondering if maybe we could become friends so that one day you could throw me an amazing shower too!

    Your blog is always inspiring! Do you have any tips for a “Bon Voyage to India” party, slightly kitschy?
