Holli's Baby Shower

This is my dear friend Holli..
Holli is going to have a baby, so we threw her a shower..
Not just any shower, a circus themed shower..
Full of cute details, and fun games..
There was just one hitch. Rain.. a lot of it. We had a tent set up outside. Twinkle lights in the trees, pinwheels, a photo booth, cotton candy, popcorn, and sno-cone machines.. Well you get the idea.

About 30 mins. before the shower started a huge gust of wind came and blew everything.. well everywhere. (The photo booth is currently in the neighbors yard somewhere.)

So we scrambled. With every one's help. Especially my sweet mom who was kind enough to let us throw it at her house. We made due. But it was a bit crowded and pretty bittersweet for me since I had seen it in my head. (And let me tell you it was grand.) That's okay though.. we had a blast..
We played some old fashioned circus games, (which I sadly didn't get pictures of) won prizes, Holli opened her darling gifts. and we took a ton of silly pictures.
And you know what? It was quite the circus.
(On a side note..us girls that hosted, and the guest of honor crashed Village Inn after the shower. We laughed our guts out and reminisced until 2 in the morning. I felt like I was 19 again. Thanks girls!)

Oh so fun! I loved it! I laughed just looking at the pictures and remembering. Thank you so much for a wonderful party and after-party. I loved being totally uncaring of what people thought of us, we were loud and funny and wonderful! YAY for friends!!!
