I finally have time to sit down and write a proper post about my sister’s baby shower!

First of all, I have to say that I had such a great time planning the shower with Amy, Kari, and Emily.  All three of them are so crafty and talented that between the four of us, we went to town on the d-i-y projects.  I’m pretty sure we were all a little burnt out after the party was over.

When we were initially planning the shower we thought that making it a surprise for the mommy-to-be would be a lot of hard work fun.  If we could get her husband in on the action then the surprise shower would be a success.  Don’t get me wrong the four of us knew it would be difficult to keep it a secret, but the group of family and friends that were invited really helped us pull it off.

Since Julie didn’t know the exact date of the shower, we had to think of a really good reason to get her out of the house while we set up.  Luckily, my brother-in-law is awesome and was able to get her out of the house for a few hours with her none the wiser.

Amy, Emily, Kari, and I were able to sneak in and put everything together right before Julie showed up.  It was a little intense.

When everyone walked in the door the first thing they saw was the adorable diaper cake made by Amy and Kari and the Keep Calm picture I made in Photoshop.

We asked everyone to bring a plate of their favorite fruits or vegetables.  Everything was delicious!

At the center of the food table was a pot of jungle animals I made with my cricut and a pregnant woman figurine that Amy bought.

Above the food table we hung onesies that Julie made us when she first announced she was pregnant at Christmas!  They say "I love Auntie" with each of our names after them.  The middle onesie is one I made with a yellow fabric elephant on it.

And, as you can tell, Julie was shocked, excited, and thrilled when she finally figured out why we had been so secretive about her shower.

I am so glad I was able to capture all of these sweet moments for Julie to treasure forever.
