baby shower

My cousin Kristen is pregnant with her first child who is due to arrive next month-July. We had her a baby shower at the winery in Mt. Vernon, IL last weekend. It couldn't have been more beautiful outside on the deck for her day. Kristen's sister {Lezlee}, cousin's-Amber & Laura, her Aunts and I planned the shower. I designed the invitations {these girls helped me assemble them} and remember Laura blogged here she baked the amazing sugar cookies.

The cookies were displayed in this cute wooden train I picked up at a yard sale.The table decor plan was to to lay a square of green check fabric on top of white linen table covers then, a stack of Dr. Seuss books, and place a wooden toy on top anchoring three balloons. Well, I didn't think this out too well. A little wooden toy, on wheels, on a breezy day....didn't work at all to keep the balloons put. We had to just set them aside and Kristen's nephew, Andre, ended up playing with them all least they were entertainment for the kids. Kristen looked so pretty! There were alot of laughs, a few tears and so many great gifts! I think Kristen and Tyler are well on their way to being ready for baby Isaac to arrive.The Dr. Seuss baby bedding collection from Pottery Barn Kids will be in Isaac's nursery - which explains all the Dr. Seuss themed gifts. Including a few adorable gifts from Seussland online Who doesn't love Dr. Seuss!!!I love this picture because I just caught Brooke's reaction when the baby kicked her hard and Kristen has that looks on her face like she could be sick...

Happy waiting! We love you Kristen!
