Baby Shower!

This past weekend, I had my first baby shower in Florence, South Carolina. So many family members came from both mine and Landon's families--Britton is so loved already.

My sister and my mom hosted the party at our favorite BBQ place in Florence (Cain's on Pamplico Highway), and it was so much fun. It was relaxed, everyone was chatty, and the food was great. Just the recipe for a wonderful shower!

My sister is a wonderful baker, and made the most delicious cake for the party: my favorite, which is wedding cake (i.e. pound cake) and wedding cake icing (i.e. not the low fat stuff). We're using Skip Hop Treetop Friends bedding for Britton's nursery, and the invitations matched the bedding. Amber copied the owl from the invite/ bedding to put on the cake...AND she free-handed all of the lettering! So impressed!

The parents-to-be. My belly is getting bigger by the day!

Our Skip Hop-themed diaper cake and presents.

Amber (my sister) also got super crafty on the diaper cake. The diapers are surrounded by receiving blankets (also owl patterned, of course) and then decorated with miniature versions of Johnson and Johnson baby bath supplies. The topper is a Skip Hop baby toy (Amber added the little bow to make it more girly!). 

Landon and I had a fantastic time with our families, and we received so many thoughtful, sweet gifts. One more baby shower to go in May (hosted by Landon's siblings), and then the next big thing on the calendar will be baby Britton's arrival!
