Showering Baby Camden

All I keep thinking about after baby Camden's first shower this past Sunday, is how lucky I am to have such a great group of friends! Even though I never had sisters growing up, I feel as though they have all become like sisters to me. The hostesses were 2 of my best friends from college and the attendees were all my high school and college friends. 

The shower was held at La Chatelaine in Old Worthington, which is a local French style bakery and cafe. They reserved a private room in the back and decorated everything so cute!

I loved the "Pregnant Punch" and "Not Pregnant Punch"... Hey, if I can't drink, someones got to!

The hostess pretty much DIY'd everything. She painted the ball jars gold and mint and filled them with fresh hydrangeas. The tables were so pretty!

The food was catered by La Chatelaine. They served mini sandwiches, cheese & fruit and salad. 

Instead of cards, guests brought books and wrote a little note inside. I loved watching the little book shelf fill up by the end of the shower.

I even had my own special "Mommy To Be" chair :)

{ Seriously, look at that plate... you think I was hungry or something?! }

After eating and mingling, we played a few fun games (like guess the famous baby's parents).

So intense... Nope, I didn't win...

Another favorite game of mine was the "Words for the Wee Hours". Guests wrote encouraging (read: funny) notes on diapers for our late night changes. It was so fun to go through them all and laugh afterwards!

Guests got to take home some yummy macaroons (from my favorite) Pistacia Vera

I just love these girls!! I am excited that Camden has so many loving "aunties"!!

I had such a fun time coming home and going through all his goodies!

Now, where to put all this??

I can't believe we have 2 more showers and 2 months to go until Camden is here!

He is definitely going to be a little spoiled :)
