What was the baby shower theme?
Camping. My husband and I love the outdoors and wanted to incorporate a desire for adventure in our baby boy’s shower. We had a DIY trailmix bar and super cute tent for presents.
Who hosted the shower?
Cristin More & Jackie Swigler-two of my favorite ladies.
Were there any vendors involved in the shower? ( i.e. invitation designer, cake designer, catering, decor?)
What games did you play, if any?
Friends decorated “Midnight changing diapers” with funny phrases and photos. In addition, our friends each received a letter of the alphabet to draw a picture that represents that letter. It was remarkable to see our friend’s creativity and artistic abilities.
What is one thing you loved about the shower?
Being surrounded by most of our favorite people. The week after our shower we moved out of state so it was a wonderful welcoming for our baby and a lovely goodbye to our SF family.
What is one thing you wish you had done away with?
The kickballers next door ;). We had an outdoor public venue which was adorable for the theme however we had a slightly rowdy kickball game happening nearby.
What is one thing you wish you had added to the shower?
More photos of attendees. We were so wrapped up in enjoying the day that we forgot to take pictures of my friends.
What advice would you give someone planning a shower?
Delegate! Pick people who know you and whom you trust. Being able to share decorations, food, etc amongst many friends helped ease the load on any one person. Also, be in the moment. These moments are so fleeting; enjoy every second of the celebration!
Kind words about your photographer?
Cristin is superb at her art. She has a way to capture moments beautifully and makes those in front of the camera feel utterly comfortable. She has a way of taking simple moments and making them stunning! She is our forever photographer.
