Last weekend three of my sweet girl friends hosted a couple’s shower, our first baby shower, in Raleigh. It was a lot of fun and we are so appreciative of everyone’s support and excitement as we prepare to welcome Kate in February. Here are some photos from the event.
Here I am with the gracious hostesses! And little Ila Cate!
Adam and me
The awesome chili bar! We had white bean chicken chili, vegetable chili and traditional chili with all the fixings (sour cream, shredded cheese, fresh jalapeno slices, crackers, etc.). It was amazing and perfect for a “chilly” day! 🙂
Snacks – pop corn, cookies, chocolate dip with fruit, pumpkin chocolate chip bread and rice krispy treats!
When Adam and I arrived these gifts were set on display (one of the “rules” of the shower was no gifts were to be wrapped – this allowed us to spend more time with our friends but still share the gifts with everyone) tagged with the givers’ names. We were so surprised to see items from our parents, friends and family members who were unable to attend! It was very sweet!
Another surprise was this game! The girls had contacted Adam’s and my mom to ask questions about us growing up, like who was born with hair, who sucked their thumb, etc. Guests had to guess who was who…me, Adam, neither or both! Jake, Stephanie’s husband, won a Starbucks gift card for getting the most correct! It was fun, and I have to say I learned a few things about Adam (ie: he used to rub the edge of a satin blanket on the backside of his hand to put himself to sleep when he was little!) I can’t wait to learn Kate’s “unusual” habits!
So glad these sweet friends could make it!
The adorable invitations!
