April Showers

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

I know, I know—it isn’t April anymore. But the baby shower I attended in Arlington, VA. this past Saturday was on April 30, so I feel this title still applies.

I have to preface this post by saying I had only been to one baby shower before this past weekend, so admittedly I have very little expertise in the field. Still, I feel pretty confident in saying that this one was fabulously fun. The party throwers (sister of the Mom-to-be, Lisa, and best friend of the Mom-to-be, Bailey) made sure to add plenty of personal touches and surprises for Alison, so that the day really felt special, and not generic.

Another post preface—I am not now, nor have I ever been, a crafty person. However, this past weekend I crafted like my life depended on it. And let me tell you, I feel quite ready should another baby shower appear on the horizon (I’m talking to you, sister!).

Read on to see some of the personal touches Lisa and Bailey came up with, and feel free to steal them for your own party planning.
