Baby Love

One of my dearest friends is expecting. It has been so sweet to get to see her embrace the fulfilled longing of impending motherhood, to watch her grow in excitement, to grow in love, and to grow this precious son of hers.

Jude Briley Price is already one lucky little boy to have such fabulous parents, and it was such a joy to shower this family with love.

We planned this shower around the nursery theme and books... Because what new momma--who is also an English teacher--doesn't love the building of a children's library.

Here are some pictures of the party decor. I hope to snag a pic of the hostesses and mommy in the making that I will post later.
Isn't she a pretty pregnant lady?
This was my gift for the little guy, plus my book choice of The Little Engine That Could... Because boys love trains, duh!
April made these from scratch. She is a culinary rock star for sure.
Our cookies...that are upside down... Sheesh, but still cute.
The food spread. We did a Sunday brunch menu, and it was all super yummy.
Karen graciously opened her inviting home, and this cool and recently refinished hutch served as a focal point for some of our shower decor and sweets.
Drinking mocktails out of mason jars and cool striped straws just made us feel appropriately pinterested. :)
Ever since I became a mom and began hosting birthday parties for my girls, I am obsessed with 2 things: banners and tissue pom poms. My friends feel the same way.
You can see the cute invitation in the background, and we made book plate labels for guests to fill out for Jude.

It was a wonderful afternoon, and we just cannot wait to meet this sweet boy!
