Baby Shower at the Gaffins

In the name of "every baby is worth celebrating", Matthew and I decided to host a shower to honor the birth of Gwen & Matt's 2nd born little one, Levi Samuel. It was a fun evening and I hope Gwen & Matt, Miles and Baby Levi felt honored and special. We love you! Here are some photos of the evenings fun & festivities:

I hung large tissue paper flowers from monofilament from the light fixture overhanging the refreshment table with "rubber ducky" lemon curd cookies, lime punch, devil's food chocolate cupcakes, and a bowl full of strawberries. Yum!

We played a game called "guess that nursery rhyme". The person up front had to either act it out like charades, or draw pictures. Here's Matt drawing "star of wonder, star of bright..."

I made a "Blessings Tree" from some branches by spray painting them white and affixing them in a large pot with green moss. Every guest was encouraged to write a note to Levi, to be read when he was older.

Love the pictures! We felt incredibly honored and special! It was a great night!! You and Matt did a wonderful job with all the decorations. I loved the ducky theme. The pail of bubbles was sooo cute! Levi is very special and blessed to have an aunt like YOU!
Love you, sis!

Looks like the shower was a big hit! The decorations are adorable...I especially love the blessings tree idea, so cool! You are so sweet to do that for Gwenny and Matt. I'm sure they loved it! Wish we could have been there. Love you!
