Owl Baby Shower

The babies & I were celebrated this past weekend with our first babies shower. It was hosted by four of my best college friends, Kelly, B, Beth & Cheryl.Owl baby shower hostessesThe ladies worked their butts off & everything was perfect ~ from the invites & decor to the food & drinks. They served fruit skewers, chicken salad rolls, pimento cheese sandwiches, spinach dip, & veggies. We had lime & lemon flavored water as well as the best punch! And mini Gigi’s cupcakes for dessert while playing the “guess how big around Suz is” string game {Nana won!} & then I opened gifts.owl baby shower foodSo many gifts! Our family & friends have really spoiled the babies already. My SIL made two cloth diaper wreaths for the babies! They’re too pretty to use & are currently hanging on the nursery doors.owl baby gifts & wreathMost of these friends are from my college Chi Omega days, so owl themed gifts were galore! A homemade owl blanket from my friend Sarah, big stuffed owl & framed owl from my aunts, owl bib & humidifier as well as a fabulous ΧΩ onesie from Kim, owl baby hats from Steph, owl burp cloths from Kristen, an owl changing pad cover from Mom & Nana, an owl Boppy from B’s mom,  & even an owl lovey from Jessica!

All the Chi Os, the basket full of books, me & the hostesses, & Lily left with all the balloons!

The special hostesses came up with the idea for the guests to bring signed books for the babies instead of cards. Kelly made a “books” sign for a pretty basket & we put all the books in there. My mom & Jason’s mom actually gave us a bunch of the books we read & loved as children. That was so special! The whole day was special. I can’t wait to see the babies using, playing, wearing all the gifts & for my friends to meet the babes!
