baby shower galore!

my beautiful best friend and her hubby are so blessed
to have not one but TWO additions to their family.

last saturday, amidst weeks of masterminding, planning,
working and designing, we finally pulled off her baby shower!
we put a lot of love in all aspects of her baby shower.
with mostly everything being handcrafted by both her and i.

i would like to share some photos with all of you
of the creative juices we had flowing
to pull off a 'beautifully simple' baby shower for her and her hubby
with the birds, nest & eggs theme in purple and green.

elegant diaper cake by our awesome friend nina.
mugs for our raffle draw.

delicious cake & cupcakes for all.

rather than giving out "mommy advice" cards for all the guests
we gave out "Twin Wishes" cards for them all
it's something for the twins to be able to read and appreciate
when they get a little older.

soap favors for all the guests

flower pompoms by moi and paper lanterns by the mommy-to-be

our room decor --- beautifully hanged feature for all!

of course it was time for some games
like the classic 'guess the belly size'

and we shared some great laughs with "bring me...."
had a few lucky winner with the raffle draw
and played "guess the price" of a bucketful of baby necessities 

and of course i couldn't pass up a photo
with my gorgeous bff sporting her 31 week bump
(looking more like she's full term!)

then it was time to open some gifts and play baby bingo.

it was a wonderful rainy afternoon
filled with lots of love, laughter & wishes for the upcoming twins
that will be blessing the lives of these two.

i, for one, cannot wait to meet two beautiful little girls
who we seem to have been waiting a lifetime for.

congratulations again lovies.
