Baby, oh baby!

Baby fever is in the air.
Everrrrryone is having a baby these days!

{Don't get any ideas. I have no news to announce!!}

My good friend Sarah from our old apartment complex is expecting a little boy any day now.

We met about 2 years ago at the bark park when we first moved into our apartment.
Her labradoodle Macie was Murphy's first friend!

 Sarah's a pretty special friend and does so much for everyone, I decided to throw her a shower.
I chose an Abc theme and some basic boyish colors.
{I got most of my inspiration from this lady.}
I found the cutest invites and the assembly involved two of my favorite things...sewing paper & using vellum for envelopes! 
Although they were wayyy more labor intensive than I anticipated, I love how they turned out!

The guest list was intimate and the decor was simple, but we all had a great time and Baby Reed was super spoiled!

We sent Jersey to a friend's house for the afternoon, since she's CRAZY. 
But this guy stuck around, and kept stealing the show.










bunting.


The spread...
{color coordinated on accident...I SWEAR!}

frozen grape skewers. {not olives :D}


Peppers, carrots, & celery cups with ranch on the bottom.

The mama-to-be's fav, Margarita cupcakes!




Seriously, hammin' it up. {and my nassty feet!}


In lieu of cheesy baby shower games {though I sometimes love them!},
everyone helped to make Baby Reed's first Abc book!




{basket of favor bags...}

{favor bags: scissors & take home Mike&Ike's}






Bunting, bunting everywhere.



"But Mommmm! I don't want to sit in the corner by myselfffff!"











Mama to be! Isn't she lovely?!



We can't wait to meet {and babysit!!!} you little man!

I think I found your blog from Stacey Yoder's, although she never posts anymore. Anyway, you are formerly Katie Brady, right? We did Chrysalis stuff together, and I wanted to say you are so crafty! That food looks delicious, too.

I needed to look up your blog - so I could start following you, and found this! Gunner is now 16 months and it seems like the shower was just yesterday! I loved it and you did such a great job. I included the invite in his baby book :)
