Baby Shower

So our baby shower was a little unusual because I planned it.  My mom and sister helped me but I enjoy planning parties and like to be in control. lol Our Theme for the babies room is Monkeys and Stars but the party theme was multicolor as well.  We had the shower Sunday July 21st. 

Our invitations had this on them
And we actually have decals of this for Baby Boy's room. 

We had lots of finger foods my mom, sister, and I made the day before like veggies and dip, chicken wing dip, BBQ smoked sausage, bread and spinach dip and fruit salad.  All my favorites.  Also instead of doing a fancy cake my mom made chocolate cake with peanut butter icing, boston cream, and white coconut cake.  They were delicious and much cheaper then the fancy ones that sometimes don't take good.  Here are the cakes
The cakes went over well but still had some left over for me to still eat after!!  Yumm!!

 Here you can see all the decorations I bought/made!!  I think it turned out nice.


Here is the gift table.  I had the sign made from etsy!  I love it and will be putting it in Baby Boy's room!  Oh and those star multicolor blankets under the presents my mom made for us.  They are beautiful.  I will have to get a better picture and post on a later blog because they are hard to see here. 

 The food went over well and actually only food we really had left was the stuff at the end of the table because people ran out of room on their plates lol
I love candy so for our guest favors I had a candy table with bags for everyone to take some candy home with them!  I was sure I would have a ton of candy left over but I didn't.  Just enough for me to snack on =)
My sister did a great job at the shower.  She did all the announcing and games.

We were excited about opening all of Baby Boy's presents.  We got a lot of great things.  We hadn't bought much waiting till after the shower so now its time to shop for the things we didn't get!!  We love to shop for Baby Boy!!
Then we forgot to get these pictures before we cleaned up but remembered to get a few after! lol Here is G and I and my Sister, Mom and I
