My friend, Cindy, is expecting baby #3 in just seven short weeks! She and her husband Josh already have two precious girls, Caroline (3) and Annaliese (2) and are being surprised by the gender with "Tresy". (Tresy is the baby's nickname - baby #3 - get it?)
Two of Cindy's other best-friends, Donna and Angie,shared hostessing duties with me and we had so much fun. (As a side note, I can't tell you how much I enjoy hosting events especially with people who are all on the same page - thank you ladies!)
Since gender is a surprise we went with a green and yellow color scheme and I am so happy with how everything turned out. This was a very simple shower with just a few quests so I even got to use my own china, utensils, etc... which made it even more fun.
I found these cute silhouette stickers at the HobLob...don't they just work so well?
We made Cindy two mason jars (girl and boy) and asked guests to write their "words of wisdom" for either raising 3 girls (I think she got lots of patience) or a boy (these talked a lot about dirt).
Now she has something for the nursery for when Tresy arrives.
We also had a place set up for people to sign up for dinner duty when the bundle arrives.
Of course no shower is complete without presents. Since this is baby #3 and they have most of the "gear" required, we asked everyone to bring diapers to help stock them up. Most people listened - but we will make an exception for the grandmas! NaNa and Bebe went above and beyond and couldn't resist the urge to get boy gifts and girl gifts! They are so sweet!
Of course Caroline and Annaliese were big helpers, too!
We had a great day celebrating together! Can't wait to meet you, Tresy! You are already loved!
