Houston Baby Shower

Here are a few photos from the first of my baby showers in Houston. My friends Ashley and Lindsey spent a long time planning it and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! Besides absolutely clearing off my registry, my friends and family got me tons of adorable personalized things, which will be getting their own post.

My dress was from Ann Taylor Loft, shoes are from a boutique in Italy (made in the boutique).

Guests had a choice of three menu options:
  • Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad Wrap with a Caesar BLT Salad of Romaine Hearts, Bacon, Oven-Dried Tomatoes, Courtons, Parmesan Cheese and a Caesar Dressing, served with Butternut Squash Soup
  • Shrimp Salad on a Croissant with Rice Artichoke Salad, served with Chicken Sausage Gumbo
  • Chicken Spinach Crepe topped with Mushroom Sauce and served with a Broiled Tomato and Asparagus
Drinks served were water, iced tea with mint, wine, champagne and mimosas
Dessert was Crave cupcakes and favors were individually wrapped shortbread cookies from Paulie's.

The adorable yet elegant invites from TinyPrints set the tone (obviously, not my real info; taken from TinyPrints website).

Me with the lovely hostesses. I'm going to put this photo in a little frame in the nursery.

Bless you, Jess, for taking this photo and making me look totally not pregnant!


So many things!
