Baby Shower for the little princess!!

IMG_9254

My past few weekends have been so frantic getting all the final touches ready for the arrival of baby girl, that I’ve been very behind with my blog posts.  I think after baby girl arrives I will still have a bunch of maternity pictures to post.

I am so excited to share with you the pictures from my gorgeous baby shower.  I am very thankful that I have such wonderful people in my life, who care so much about me and helped me put together such a beautiful day.  I’m the type of person that is always keeping busy.  Most days I am so busy that I almost forget I live so far away from my family and many of my best friends.  When life moments happen, such as having your first child, it really hits you hard.  Many important people in your life are not there to share each step along the way.  These moments also make me realize the new family and friends I have made here in LA and how thankful I am to have them.  My sister-in-law Raquel and bff Nora stepped right in to take charge and throw me the most magical baby shower.  I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

The party was filled with friends and loved ones who came for mimosas and brunch.  We had a make your own mimosa bar and a virgin cocktail bar for those of us not drinking or expecting.  There was a desert table filled with chocolates, doughnuts, cupcakes and a beautiful strawberry cake.IMG_9247IMG_9248

The table setting was perfect.  It made me think of Alice in Wonderland meets rustic glam. I loved that we all sat together on the long table.  My sister-in-law Raquel made these wonderful Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrubs for all the guests as party favors for attending the shower.  All natural ingredients and they smell amazing!!IMG_9240

Games and activities are a must during a baby shower.  One of the games was to wear one of the pink necklaces below and try to collect them from the other guests.  Whenever anyone mentioned the word “baby” they had to give away their necklace to the guest that caught them in the act.  The lady with the most at the end of the shower won a prize.

IMG_9242IMG_9253The ladies competed in changing a diaper blindfolded game.  This is much harder than it sounds.  Veteran mom Jen was obviously the expert at this and blew everyone else under the water.

My favorite activity was having everyone decorate a onesie for baby girl.  How cool is this idea!  Now we have many onesies that are made with love specifically for her.IMG_9246

I wore this beautiful dress that I received from my BUMPstyle box!!  You can read all about them in one of my previous blog posts!!  It is such a great asset for pregnant women because you get a personal stylist that selects maternity pieces specifically for you.  Dressing the bump is not an easy task, and there are limited options.  This takes away all the hard work and frustration.   You just have to decide if you like the pieces selected for you or if you want to return them and wait for your next box.

  1. how cute. it looks like it was a blast. so chic and classy. I’ve been reading your blog and i just love your style.

    curious if you’re also providing advice to readers? I saw this dress on liketoknowit from Asos, and am curious what you would style with? I have these black and white patterned flats…. do you think they’d go together?

    1. I love the dress!! I definitely think you can style it with those flats. I would add a black purse or clutch to bring together the black from the flats. You could also pair it with a bright colored pump to give it a spring look and some statement earrings!!
      Would love to see how you decided to style it!!
