Baby Shower Bliss

This past weekend I hosted a baby shower for a first-time mommy-to-be from our church. It was my first time to host something all on my own!

It was a very simple brunch shower. The menu consisted of Sausage Egg Casserole, muffins, Cool Fruit Salad, cake, punch and water! We ended up having a bunch of extra food but they made great left-overs for my family!

The mommy-to-be is expecting a boy and isn't a fan of baby blue so the colors I chose were black and lime green. I wanted it to look "pretty" without being "girly." I incorporated the black and green everywhere I could, from the invitations right down to the cake. I decorated the tables with tulle that I bought here, it was so much cheaper than getting it at a fabric store! My mother-in-law let me borrow vases and tablecloths, so that cost me $0 and I used 2 bunches of baby's breath that I bought at a wholesaler in town for $8 a bunch. Our Pastor's wife also let me borrow her beautiful drink dispensers for the water and punch.

I didn't play any games, we just spent time talking and watching the mommy-to-be open her gifts! I made a diaper cake that I also ended up using as a decoration for the gift table. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
