Recently I had the opportunity to co-host a baby shower for one of my best friends. She has done so good throughout the years at throwing the best parties for other people that I wanted to do something special for her.

We knew that she was expecting a boy, and we were so excited! We had to postpone the shower date back a little as she got put on bed rest and the little dude made an earlier appearance than expected. 🙂 We were excited to be able to have the new little baby (Dylan Edward) at the shower.

Here are all the shower details:

Pom-poms were hung above the eating tables. Click here to find out how to make these.

I was having a girls day with my mom and sisters, and my sister pointed out the flowers that were sitting at our table at Cyd’s. They were made of napkins. I was going to do fresh flowers for the shower, but this inspired me to try something different. The napkin flowers are made like the poms.

I was checking google reader one day as I was planning for my shower and ran across one of my friend’s posts. I took the advice that others had given new moms and used those as table decorations.

We had a slideshow of all her maternity images playing at the food table.

I got a new Macro lens for my birthday, and I’m in love.

The cupcakes were from Janet’s Cakes and Catering and oh so yummy!

    Haley, the shower was just incredible! You and Erica were the perfect hostesses! You made my day so special and fun! You are forever my treasured friend! 🙂 P.S. Have you ever stopped to think about how long we’ve been friends? 🙂 If my calculations are correct, almost twenty years. Wow, I had no idea you’ve been a blessing in my life for that long!! Love you and thanks so much!
