My Rustic Backyard Baby Shower

Last month my sister in law (my brother's wife whose boys I watch) hosted a baby shower for me and our baby boy.  It was a sweet afternoon celebrating with friends and family in a beautiful backyard setting.  I felt very loved and spoiled by all the guests and their generous gifts.  I still have fond memories from my bridal showers, so I soaked up all the kindness and attention during this special season of life.  

My sister in law went above and beyond to make everything extra special and adorable.  All the details were extremely thoughtful and lovely.  It is not very often that I get to be on the receiving end of such a shin dig so I thoroughly enjoyed sitting back and enjoying it all.

Her and her mom cut and sewed yards and yards of bunting to fill up the whole backyard!  It was pretty amazing!

The dessert bar was delicious!  Oreo balls, cake pops, and macarons!  She knows what I like!

Her famous pasta salad is always a hit!  

No complaints about the food from this pregnant lady!  Yum!

My dear friend from Florida was in town and was able to join us.  It was just last fall that I was hosting her baby shower!  How time flies by!

One of my favorite details were these sweet wishes for baby cards that everyone filled out.  I picked up a little binder to put them all in making it easy to look through in the future (I'll have to blog about it soon!).  She purchased the PDF for the cards off of Etsy from Kimberly J Designs.

My mom put together these sweet little succulents that doubled as table decor and baby shower prizes.

A few cute gifts from some of my creative friends!  Love that little Baby Urke banner!  It's going in the baby book!

And then we ended the beautiful day with a few photos.  My mom and I...

And two of baby boy's awesome aunties!  We are so blessed to have such wonderful family!

As each milestone of this pregnancy passes by, it makes everything seem more real.  While the future comes with new uncertainties, I am thankful for this sweet time to celebrate with family and be blessed by the reminder of how lucky we are to have such wonderful support.  We are so thankful.
