Baby Shower Extravaganza!
Missed seeing your blogs this weekend.
I was a bit busy with my daughter Amanda's baby shower.
It was really hot here in Southern California. We had a wonderfully cool summer, but this past week was really hellish.
We were expecting over 50 people for the shower, so on Friday my husband and I decided to attempt to make some sort of canopy. I saw a picture of one I liked, so we tried it. It took the entire day, but we did it. It provided a nice shade for us in the back yard. People loved it!! It looked pretty too!!
Everything went very well, except for the heat. The decorations were fun, as were the favors. The food was great! Amanda's friends, Jennifer, and Jackie along with me were throwing the shower. Jennifer was in charge of the food, Jackie was in charge of the games and prizes, and my job was to provide the venue, as well as the decorations and the favors. Of course I went a little crazy with that, but that is what I do. I am very mad at myself for being so busy, that I forgot to take photos of the front of my house, and the cake. I hope someone else did. I did get shots of the inside and the backyard.
The smiley girl is the mommy to be. A little less than one month to go. She is due at the end of Sept. Can't wait to meet baby Jake!!
I will try to get around to visit all of you this week.
The shower was fun, but it was very time consuming. I like everything to be just so.
Have a great week!
UPDATE!! Please go to my daughter's Blog to see more photos, including the front yard and the cake. Yay for you Amanda for getting more photos!!!
