My Best Friend's Baby Shower

I have been best friends with Marlaina since we were in Middle School.  She's one of the few people I've kept in touch with from high school.  Even though we went to different colleges, we made sure to get together whenever we were both home.  I was in her wedding and she was in mine.  This past Sunday, we celebrated her and her baby girl on the way with a baby shower.  

The nursery is decorated in yellow and gray, and they used that color scheme for the shower as well.  They also had a "help our seedling grow" theme and the little touches were so cute.  

For my gift, I decided to make a basket with some of my favorite things.  The basket itself is one of my favorite things.  We have a few with the blue gingham liner, but I'm in love with this gray and white pattern!  I filled it with a Pottery Barn Kids yellow gingham hooded towel, washcloths, and an ivory stroller blanket (the softest blanket ever).  I also gave her a ton of OXO products... plates, bowls, spoons, etc.  The invitation asked everyone to bring a book to start the little lady's library.  I brought one of Noah's favorites... Peek-a-Who!


  1. Love those little seedling packets - what a cute idea!

  2. Such a beautiful group of ladies. That's sweet that you guys have been friends for so long. The decor and food table look so nice. I love that everyone gifted your friend with a book for her daughter. Such a thoughtful gesture.
