Jessica's Baby Shower

the invites:
the guest of honor:

the guests:

the food:


(Thanks to Jessica's mom who provided the awesome fruit skewers and to my mom who made such yummy quiche.)


the game: (found on Oh Happy Day)
A great way to "break the ice"..the first person who can get their baby out of the ice wins.



the prize:


the video:
I asked Jess and Gavin a series of questions, anything from predicting what their baby would look like, to advice they want to give her. It was fun for us all to get to know the parents better as well as a fun thing to show the babe at a later date. (I don't know about you, but I would LOVE to watch my parents talking about me before I was born.)



the toast:
Everyone toasted Jessica and gave her a piece of advice. The best thing about this shower was that it was intimate with close friends and everyone spoke from their heart. I don't think one person didn't cry a little (or a lot!).


the presents:

the favors:


(am happy to share ideas, just please remember to give credit where credit's due. thank you :)

You are so fun and creative! I know who to come to when I'm having a baby...just kidding. How did you get the mom off the Tiny Prints invites? I've tried doing that but wasn't successful.

You are so creative I love the video idea, I wish I would have done something like that with my kids.

Amber, I found it for free, with no copyright, that's why I used it. In fact it was a high resolution file. I stumbled upon it forever ago, so I am not sure where to look.. sorry.

Oh and I would throw you a shower in a heartbeat if it meant seeing a tiny little Amber/Jared!
