Bonnie's Baby Shower

Brenda, Jessica and I threw a shower for Bonnie on Saturday..

I designed and printed the invites:

And made the favors:

Jessica provided the yummy dips (which I somehow missed getting a picture of!) and the beautiful flowers to tie in with the theme of the shower (being flowers in case you missed that)

And Brenda brought these gorgeous edible flowers from Edible Arrangements. (not only gorgeous, but super tasty too)

Bonnie's best friend Amelia came in from California and was a huge help as well. She made these awesome Rhodes Bread Cinnamon Rolls. Seriously they tasted homemade. If you are looking for a great frozen cinnamon roll, these are the ones you want. YUM!

This was my plate, I started out with a half cinnamon roll, and let's just say I went back for seconds. So so good!

She got a lot of great presents. And let me just tell you this little girl is going to be well dressed. Seriously some of the cutest clothes!

She had a ton of people come and support her, but if you know Bon, you know everyone loves her.

But the greatest (and most touching) surprise of the day was when Bonnie's mom showed up even though she had just come out of the hospital on Thursday from brain surgery. Bonnie's mom is so amazing, and we were all so glad she could come.

It was a fantastic day and were so happy we could celebrate Bonnie. We love you girl and are so excited to meet the new lil' babe in May!

(Bren, Amelia, Me, Bon, and Jess)

Okay, Okay, I may be brimming with excitement!

So much fun! So many cute, girly things! I love it! And, Bonnie may the the cutest pregnant person ever! I can't wait to see Lola Ella Grace Mae (Selle). :)

I'm so glad we could stop by and see her nursery. I LOVE the birdie theme. If I had known I would have sewn her those birdies I make for Elle. SOOO easy and kinda cute.
Ooooh I just had an idea. I should make her one (or five) out of the material she is making her crib bedding with. Let her know and tell her sorry we could only pop in for a second.

VERY cute invites and favors cait!

Wow, wow, wow... you girls are pretty much amazing. That was the best baby shower ever. :) You put so much work into that and I felt so loved. Thanks for all you have done for me. Baby Lola (or Ella or... whatever) thanks you from the bottom of her heart!
