We recently had our baby shower in Texas this past weekend. It was a wonderful trip, one of my favorites in a while. We were showered with tons of love, advice, gifts and lets not forget…food!! I let Liviana have her first tastes of many things that weekend. Also, I didn’t plan on checking a bag, but that changed when it’s actually cheaper than shipping. There are still a few things we will need, but will purchase those at a later time.
How adorable are these decorations? I loved how majority of everything is handmade. Less is more is my motto 🙂 My older sister, Venice [marimacdesigns] put together the canvas and partnered with a fellow Etsy seller [bakerblossoms] for the felt flower creations. The succulents were a great touch as thank you gifts, you can order them here. and the cupcakes were delicious: lemon, strawberry and red velvet made by Arley’s Cakes located in Lufkin.
Check out at that spread y’all!! All made with love by my mom and mother-in-law. we are truly blessed to have these women in our lives. They go above and beyond to accommodate and feed us and I wouldn’t change a thing about them. T aim to be as selfless as those human beings. We’ve got: eggrolls, pancite (filipino dish), pita (albanian dish), chicken salad sandwiches, pasta salad and baklava, all homemade and delicious!!
We chose to have a co-ed shower because it was the best way to get to see everyone all at once. It may not be the ‘norm’ but we are far from that because being normal sucks! I loved our shower, it was laid-back and carefree. Everyone was mingling, eating and having fun! Big thank you to everyone that took time out of their schedules to visit with us and shower us with all the love, support and laughter we could have hoped for, we truly love each and every one of y’all!
