Lilly Shower!

Last Saturday we had a Lilly Pulitzer themed baby shower at my house. The whole family worked their butts off to help me get everything in order. My sil made pom poms for hours!! My poor sister was tying bows of tulle in the pouring rain, and I don't even want to know how long my mil spent carving watermelon!! My mom was pulling weeds an hour before guests started arriving. Everything turned out great, despite the rain, and my only regret was it went by too fast and I feel I did not get enough time to thank my guests. It was truly one of the happiest days of my life. To see everyone else's excitement and love for baby girl already is a true blessing.

My sister found these cute invitations on a shopping trip in Chicago and we decided we would do a Lilly theme for the shower..

We hung pink and green pom poms from every place we could and tied pink and green ribbon on anything we could think of..

The Candy Bar..

The dessert table..thanks to my friend Vicki for the delicious/adorable cake!

The Food...


(I snuck these pictures after the monsoon was over)

Finally a picture or 2 of the big momma...more pictures of friends and family to come :)

This pic is of me opening baby's first fur coat from my grandmother..she has had 2 knee replacements and a hip replacement and does not travel so well..I stole this pic from my sil's blog and am so thankful she captured that moment.
