My daughter's second baby shower was held at her sister in law's new beautiful home. Unfortunately I don't have home pictures to share because they just moved in a month ago and it will take time for her to fill this huge home with the things she wants. She wants to take her time and find just the right furniture pieces and accessories. I do have some shower pictures to share though. This shower was for both sides of the family, friends and former co workers of Brooke's. She had a very good turnout.
The party was held downstairs in the media and billiard rooms which also has a full kitchen. Just perfect for entertaining.
Please excuse the smudges on the left of my pictures. I did not realize that I had two finger prints on the camera lens until I started viewing these on my laptop. Woe is me!
This was set up with the favors and two gift bags for the winners of the shower game.
Each bag contains the makings for a glass of lemonade with a sugar stir stick. So cute.
The pool table was used for the gift table and soon it was completely full and more were on the floor.
Cute letters spelling out the baby's name, Leila (pronounced Layla).
This was the cutest idea. They put floating rubber duckies in the beverages.
Fresh tiny pink roses filled each vase that spelled out Leila.
This was the cutest thing ever. It is a cupcake topiary.
Brooke's mother in law and her sister in law made this from scratch. So so creative.
Everyone said the cupcakes were so good, but I refrained since I am trying to get in shape.
Onto the gift opening. There were lots of gifts.
Those diapers may last a day or two.
Look at this adorable bag to carry those diapers in. Her husband's aunt made this and several other great things. She is an excellent seamstress. If anyone would like to have a custom bag made let me know and I will get you her info. She also makes many other baby items. I will get pictures of the other things she made when I go to Brooke's to take more pictures.
This cute quilt was made for her mother in law when she was pregnant with her son, my daughter's husband and she has passed it on to them. What a special treasure.
Mama to be got her electric breast pump. I'm not sure they even had these when I had her.
This was a super nice diaper bag given to her by her former coworkers. She used to work at the same bank Mr. Savvy works for, but she has a different job now.
Nice tub and lots of toys.
My sister, mom and me. I wore black pants, grey tank top and a cotton cardigan. See my new necklace. That is a Lisa Leonard design that you can find here. I also have on the bird necklace with it.
Me and Naomi.
Sister, mom, me and mama to be. Soon there will be four generations.
My mom looks good for 78 years young! Oops, sister corrected me she is 77!
It was so hot yesterday and Brooke was hot. I was hot my whole pregnancy, but she hasn't been. Hopefully cooler weather will come in soon. I will go to Brooke's soon and get some more nursery pics and some of the cutest baby girl clothes. I believe this little one will be stylin!
Thanks for letting me share this special time in my life with you!
Y'all come back now,
