Baby, It's Cold Outside Baby Shower

Sunday, January 11, 2015
I hope you are all having a good weekend! In the winter months, we try to sneak away to the mountain as much as we can on the weekends and we are currently stuck at the condo waiting for a certain little someone to kick her first ever stomach bug. Or at least enough to last an hour car ride home without any incidents. We've been pretty lucky that this is our first encounter with an intense stomach bug, but seeing her so sick breaks my heart! We're hoping for a quick recovery and a happy, energetic girl in no time.

Last month was my bestie's baby shower, where my girlfriends and I collaborated with Abby's family to throw her a 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' baby shower. Since it was held a couple days after Christmas, the theme was perfect! It was also great to see so many of our friends come together to celebrate the soon to be arrival of a new baby. The shower was made complete by a hot cocoa bar, grilled cheese & tomato soup on the menu and wintry decorations that transformed the venue into a chilly, cozy winter wonderland. 



How cute is this little train name sign?!


The cutest mama to be! 





The girls and I had so much fun putting together this hot cocoa bar. It was easy to throw together and was a huge hit. We hit up Target and Walmart and grabbed easy ingredients to add to the cocoa such as chocolate chips, mini Andes candies, peppermint sticks, coconut flakes, Fluff etc. Maybe one of my favorite things were the cute hippos in top hats cinnamon sugar shakers. 








One of my favorite details of the shower was the grilled cheese & tomato soup display. It's one of Abby's favorite foods and I loved the simplicity of it all. It was perfectly customized to celebrate her and baby Vinny.




Parker loves her some baby. This is her and my friend's baby, Kenley. To say Parker is enamored is an understatement. Whenever she is around Kenley she is constantly running over to check on her to see if she needs her pacifier and to bend and move her tiny arms. I know she will be the best big sister.

The thing about showers is that they go by so fast, and you always want them to happen again. We are so excited to meet Mr. Vinny come February!
