Hi Friends! I am so very pooped but the shower was so much fun and I think my daughter was quite pleased.
My sister Susie and a friend of Katie's helped with the hostessing duties.
Dearest daughter insisted we set up in the garage since she felt their wouldn't be enough room in our house.
Well yesterday was another hot and muggy one. So we started in the garage and after a few shower games we all moved inside. Just too Hot and even pregnant daughter agreed.
So we started out here. Dan and I had set up 3 big tables and we had seating for about 30.
I found these pink and green tin flower pots at Jo Anne Fabrics. They were clearances for 70% off and only cost about $3.50 each. I bought a bouquet of roses and divided it between the 3 tables to use as centerpiece's.
I used pink tulle as a runner on this table and light green tulle as a runner for the other tables.
Some of the guests. Dan's Mom, sister, nieces, sister-in-law etc.
Another view. After two shower games, we were ready to get out the heat and move inside.
It was crowded, but it worked! And the AC sure felt good.
Katie Rose and her cake. I made a variety of petite little sandwiches, BBQ, pasta salad,
fruit pizza, fruit and veggie trays, appetizers and an ice creme cake. I was so busy serving I didn't get any food pics but I think it went over well.
Then onto the gifts!
They just kept coming and coming. Katie is one very lucky young Mom to be!
A beautiful quilt made by my MIL.
Katie with her good friend Kate. They started playing together in day care when they were only 2 years old.
They stuck to each other like glue. It was always Kate and Katie, and boy could these two get into some mischief!
Katie with some of her other good friends from high school. These gals are all only 20 and they do look so young don't they?
This is Katie's friend Krystal and her little boy Rory. He was the only male allowed at the party!
I think he was a bit overwhelmed by all the estrogen.
More random pics. Here I am holding my adorable niece Chloe.
And speaking of Chloe. Here she is with her Mom, my sister Susie.
She had a blast, and entertained us all!
She is such a cutie pie!
And the gifts just kept piling up!
And there was just so much cute stuff!
And my friend Jolene. Jolene is the Mother of six and one very talented lady. Out daughters skated together for many years and we had so much fun during that time of our lives. Jolene is also a talented seamstress and she made Katie's baby girl her very first skating costume.
My 1 year old niece Chloe modeling it for us. Sorry it's so blurry. Chloe is very hard to get a pic of as she is always in motion!
A few more scenes from the party.
By the time this pic was taken I was fried! I was also sweaty and my hair looked awful but it's the only one of us together.
And the party comes to a close. What a great day with family and friends!
Have a great week everyone. Oh, and today the heat and humidity broke. We were in the upper 70's instead of the 90's and boy it does feel good!
I am adding to all these great blog parties!
