Erin’s baby shower

This weekend we went back to Lexington for Erin’s baby shower.  Chris and Erin are expecting a baby boy, Noah Ray, in July.  Jonie and Julie threw a beautiful jungle-themed shower that went along with Noah’s nursery.

Jonie made these animal picture frames to use as centerpieces for the tables then gave them to Erin to use in the nursery.  I loved them! Such a cute idea!

I made the cupcakes for the shower – strawberry with cream cheese icing and white with chocolate buttercream icing.  I wish I could, but I can’t take the credit for the super cute cupcake toppers; Julie ordered the fondant toppers (from Etsy, I think) and we placed them on the frosted cupcakes.

how adorable are those jungle animals?!?!

that mesh netting thing has been so handy – Erin used it first for Julie’s shower, and it has been used for several other showers since then; it’s easy to decorate to match the colors/theme of the shower!

little tiny baby sunglasses that look just like Chris’ (the daddy-to-be) glasses!

And, well, because what would a trip to Lexington be without picture of my favorite girl…here’s little miss Nora all ready for the Kentucky Derby in her Derby hat:

seriously, could she be any cuter????

Now it’s time to sit back and wait for Noah to make his appearance – so excited to meet him!

    How adorable! I love the jungle theme for the shower.

  2. Gorgeous table centre pieces and cup cakes! :) I love the idea of re-using the centre pieces for the baby’s nursery.
