hunter's baby shower

Back in June I threw a baby shower for Hunter, Emily and Joe's precious baby boy. I had lots of help executing the big event and it turned out fabulously, if I do say so myself! Here are some pics:

The invite. It took hours to assemble these suckers, but I think it was worth every hour!

The entrance. This was a last minute addition, but it matched the balloon on the invite. I may have been the only one who noticed...
Proud parents
Proud grandparents
Proud auntie and uncle
Hot uncle :) {soon-to-be hot daddy!}
Rob's mom and dad getting some Hunter love {getting practice, too}

The food spread {which included gluten-free items for Joe}

The dessert spread {it was a cupcake bar with lots of topping options, with a handful of gluten-free cupcakes, too}

"Hunter Hugs" - this was an area for people to take a picture with Hunter and then scrapbook the picture. Many people did scrapbook their picture, others just took a pic and I'll scrapbook for them. We printed 2 pictures - one for the guest and the other for the album. Mommy and daddy will always remember this special day!
Mel, one of my besties came to celebrate!
One the way out, everyone took with them some monkey bread {aka: banana bread}. To make a long story short, Rob and I were up nearly all night making this bread, as the recipe sucked! Thank God for my husband! This is a pic of the bread on our counter, I guess we didn't get a cute pic of the actual set-up.

I had so much fun putting everything together. I absolutely loved coordinating all the details - playing with paper is one of my favorite things to do. More than anything, I loved being able to honor Emily and Joe with a wonderful baby shower. They deserved to have the best shower to celebrate their perfect little guy.

I'm just happy we planned to have the shower when we did. If it would have been even two weeks later, I would have been sick and pregnant, and without the knowledge of Zofran in my life.
