BEST. SHOWER. EVER!
You guys, I lucked out with this party because it was a dream come true!
Having struggled with endometriosis and infertility for years, (And throwing countless baby showers for good karma) I had dreamed of this day for a very very long time! This was one party I was not going to leave up to anyone else. That, and I kind of throw my own parties and delegate duties cause parties are my skills. With the help of hubby and family, they made this day possible!
The only thing that stresses me to no-end while planning a party is food. Knowing right of the bat that I was going to make this a big event, I decided to get some pro's involved! VERY MUCH WORTH IT! I decided to have fellow friend; Savour Food Truck cater. Savour usually makes the most delicious sliders and recently started introducing Venezuelan food in their menu (Whoot-whoot!) However, for this event they made the BEST sweet crepes you have ever tasted in life. I kept waiting for guests to arrive to escort them to the food table so I could keep getting 2nds and not look like a fatty! NBD!
My awesome Instagram friend Summer of Summer Time Sweets, made THE CUTEST & MOST DELICIOUS chocolate covered Oreos! She asked me what I wanted them to look like and I had no idea how to explain what I had in mind, so I just sent her what the baby shower invites looked like and she nailed it! Dream come to life! That's talent, my friend!
This was probably my 2nd investment. I ordered all decor stuff from Amazon using keywords like "Jungle, Tropical, Safari, Animals, etc." Because we are having a boy and the venue walls were pink, I wanted to make sure the decoration really stood out. Plus, Sirene's Beauty Place is so cute, that I couldn't pass up such a cute space for such a good price. Plus-Plus, the lighting is perfect and the space is big! There was no loosing here.
GAMES & ENTERTAINMENT
You guys. I HATE baby shower games. I will gladly play along and play them at anyone's shower but since I was calling the shots on this one, I was like.... NO WAY! Instead, I opted for a mingle environment. I mean, what group of girls does not want to mingle at a party!? Plus I find that adults don't really need to be hosted and distracted like kids. We are pro's at conversations by now. This was also a good time to catch up with so many girls I had not seen in a while. So what I did for entertainment was a DIY Bath Bomb Station and a Selfie Photo Booth that @PeacePhoto made even better with her photography services! Bath Bombs rocked the house and the place smelled amazing when the girls got down to work!

Girlfriends, skip the registry! I am sure by now you have realized that neither you or anyone else looks at a registry. Only grandmas and old school peeps look at registries! This is both a blessing and a curse! And I don't know about you but registries overwhelm me specially because I want to make sure I get gifted the things I *Need* before anything else. So I opted for GiftCards! We got super lucky and our friends spoiled us with both gifts and giftcards and I was able to get the things that we needed to! Make a registry for your own check-list and that's it!
It was the week before and I had everything ready before I had my outfit picked out! Major Stress mode! Luckily, all my pregnant girlfriends had been RAVING and talking my ear off about Pink Blush Maternity! I contacted them and they let me pick out the cutest Maternity Dress eva! This Maternity Boutique has the cutest style! I had seriously been bobbing and weaving out of buying any legit Maternity Clothes unless it was from Target and even then I waited a while to give in! After finally checking out Pink Blush Maternity, Hubs gave me an awesome shopping spree allowance to go crazy on! Pregnant ladies.... CHECK THEM OUT!
To everyone! EVERYONE! And Everyone who came and was involved in my baby shower, specially our families! We are also thankful for your on going love and support, your sweet comments and messages and your advice through this sometimes-scary pregnancy! Chris and I feel so blessed and lucky to have so much love pour onto us and to our little boy! We love you all!
