Baby B's Shower

My nearest and dearest friend is expecting her first child. Most of our high school friends got together from all over the country to throw her a shower. She is due on October 18th and is expecting a boy!
Cupcake toppers I created using Picknik and Paint, pre-assembly. They say "Welcome Baby B", "500% Boy"(which is what the ultrasound technician said...making daddy feel extremely proud), "Little Monkey", and "It's a...BOY!".
Assembled on coordinating cardstock and colored toothpicks.

On two-bite brownies with Wunderbar bites (as per the mommy-to-be's craving).

The full spread.

The decor...these pictures don't do it justice. The lighting was terrible. We used teal, orange, yellow, and green. We also made Martha's giant pom-poms and had them all over (you can only see two in this pic).

Baby facts specific to Baby B.

Amazing cake made by the "Z" twins.
The theme of the party was favorite things and each guest brought a gift representing their favorite thing for baby or mom. We also had a lot of fun games, but the most fun was just all being together to share this special moment together. Since we all live all over we only get to see eachother a couple of times a year. I suppose the next time we will all be together is during our annual ladies brunch over the Christmas holidays and Baby B will likely be joining us!
