congratula[tion]s to the Charzewski's!

Last weekend I (& 5 of my coworkers) hosted a baby shower for our friend Jennifer. The shower was at our house, which was kind of a personal goal I had set for having the house presentable by a certain date! Mission accomplished. It was quite a relief! Here are a few photos from the event...

Amelia planted my flower boxes (along the stairs) that morning, and she made the sailing flags draped across the front porch.

Because they are having a boy, the color scheme for the event was blue, turquoise, and green, which are the colors she's using in the nursery. You can see the 'booties' that I made for favors, filled with hershey kisses.

I had also wrapped baby food jars in various ribbons, keeping with the color scheme, and used them as votive holders and vases.


To personalize the event I hung a 'clothesline' of onesies that I had made from iron-on paper that were logos and images that are specific to the future-parents. Also took baby building blocks and spelled out their last name on the mantle.

Since the party was at my house, and I don't pride myself on being the most excellent cook, the other hosts brought the food & wine. Check out the spread! I did however make the diaper 'cake' with help from Veronica & Allison when they were here for the bridge run.
