A few weekends ago my friend Heather and I had the pleasure of throwing our best friend, Jessica, a baby shower and it turned out just lovely. One of the sweetest ladies at her church, Cindy, offered for us to host the shower in her beautiful home. 
We all had so much fun eating, chatting, making onesies and celebrating baby LIV! 

FREE Printables Below! 

We began the party with some hors d'oeuvres & treats... 
My lovely sister brought Grape Meatballs, Spinach Dip with Pita Chips and Devonshire Tidbits (yeah, I didn't know what they were either but YUM). 
Heather's mom brought the world's most amazing fruit salad.
Katie and Raven brought delicious petit fours & cookies.
I made Brownie Truffles. 

Then we moved into the kitchen for the Onesie Making Party. I was blown away at how wonderful everyone's onesies turned out. I printed off a few examples but for the most part everyone came up with their own designs. 

After Onesies, we cut the delicious cake and opened gifts. 
I had seen the pink layered cake on Pinterest and fell in love so I had to make it for the shower. 
I used a vanilla cake for the 3 bottom layers and just used varying amounts of red food coloring. The top layer I made strawberry! YUM!

While everyone ate their cake we filled out a Baby Wishes card for baby Liv. 

Baby Wishes PRINTABLES are available on my ETSY Shop... 

I have provided all of the templates you will need for your own shower.
