Busy as a Bee

We had quite the going-ons this weekend. Jon and I spent most of the weekend getting the house ready for a baby shower on Sunday for Suzanne (our sister in law).

The theme was bees because this is what they plan to decorate with in their nursery. So cute! I love bees! So you can tell that I got a little into the theme.

I put together a diaper cake and incorporated a bee onesie and a bee teething blanket. I also added Baby Burt's Bees Talc Powder and a bouncing bee ball. And on the very top was an Anne Geddes baby dressed in a bee costume. Of course, we had to have a cake with a bee on it and I put cookies in a bee Easter basket. So much fun!!

I was battling a cold for most of the weekend, but I still had a good time getting ready for the shower. Jon's sister Sarah came in to help with the shower and our other sister in law Heather helped out, as well as my mom and sister. Everyone brought really great food and punch! I think Suzanne ended up with a great start for their little one.

It was a wonderful shower and darling theme (decor!) I can't wait to meet baby girl or boy Boyd! He or she will love his cousins JD and Kenna for sure!

The decorations were really cute! You were a great hostess, and hasn't God blessed you with a lovely home?
Hope you found a way to parcel out all the left over food. It was all so good!
