While Kati was visiting last week, the ladies of our family gathered to celebrate her new baby girl who will be arriving this summer!
Last year, we had planned a bigger shower with friends and extended family as Kati was expecting her first baby. The shower date was March 22, and we all know what happened that week. The trip was cancelled, the shower was cancelled, and we all retreated into our homes. So disappointing!
Fourteen months later, Kati is expecting her second baby, she and Andrew were able to travel to Maryland, and we planned a baby shower brunch to celebrate!
CHILDREN'S BOOKS had been the theme of the cancelled shower and since we had saved some of the decorations, we just added a little pink to the mix and kept the theme. Kati and Andrew are both readers, and we're certain that their children will be too!
We decorated the cupcakes with tiny "book" picks, and scattered a few favorite children's books around the room. Peter Rabbit napkins and a cheerful balloon banner completed the look.
Our brunch menu was similar to the one we had at our "Little Cutie" baby shower in March, which was similar to the menu of the "All Things Grow With Love" shower a few years ago. (I think I need to come up with a new menu whenever we celebrate the next baby!)
even if that meant that she was the last one to eat. (That's exactly what it meant.)

We also guessed the number of Hershey's kisses in a glass vase (Guess How Much I Love You),
Can you blame us?
