Suessical Baby Shower

My best friend, Brandi, is having a baby boy in September, and we recently threw her a Dr. Seuss baby shower that turned out completely adorable!! So adorable, I might add, that I have decided Deacon's first birthday will be the same theme! (So don't be surprised when you see a repeat of decorations next February...)

I, with two of Brandi's other friends were in charge of the shower, and we were slightly stressed because of what a big party planner she is, and we wanted it to be perfect! Luckily, we did a great job of delegating duties to our strengths...Amy: provided the venue & the food (her house is absolutely gorgeous and cooking skills fantastic); Jill: diaper cake, games, and prizes (she is super crafty and the games were hilarious); Me: decorations, cake (I am slightly OCD in both areas).

Because Brandi lives out of state now, this was the first time I saw her with a true baby bump! And she was glowing and beautiful!

She was also very happy with how everything turned out, so it was definitely a success!


Some of the decorations also doubled as gifts

(The decorator is a girl I went to school with who always makes fabulous cakes that taste and look great)

Tasty treats with adorable names:

Baby Cayden got SO much stuff!
