I couldn't have asked for a better day. We hosted our own shower and had it at our house so our friends and family could see Olivia's nursery. I have been crying with gratitude from my friends and family's kindness. We had PF Changs catered and Sprinkles cupcakes. All the guests took pics with the instant camera and are going to put them in a scrapbook. We still haven't opened all the gifts but I am super excited about 2 in particular because I LOVE Bjork and our daughter's Godmother gave us a Bjork doll from Etsy!!! I was screaming when I opened it!! My other friend made special *Bjork-inspired wrapping paper* for our gifts. I LOVE my friends and family so much. Everyone wrote wishes for Olivia and I was full-on crying when we read them tonight. Some were sooo sweet and some were seriously funny. Jeff, our caricaturist was a HUGE hit, he made everyone look hilarious, I LOVE ours. I am so majorly happy how nice everything was. Everyone loved our nursery and kept telling us how lucky our daughter will be. I can't stop grinning from ear to ear.
Cirque du Bebe We saw the theme on Hostess with the Mostess blog and we ran with it. My husband and I made most of the favors/decor.
Think outside of the box, we really loved the turn of the century moustache and we made some for our guests to use in photos. A majority of the shower was having our guests particpate in activities for our daughter, we had them draw on onesies, write wishes for her, take pictures for a scrapbook for her, she'll have memories of this day forever.
