On Sunday, I had my baby shower at the Woodland Golf Club in Newton, MA. We squeezed it in before wedding season really picked up and got the best of me, and I’m sure glad I did it that way because it took a lot out of this introvert! Few! I’m actually not sure how people do it later in pregnancy (I’m 23 weeks along now for reference haha). Anyways, it was such a delicious brunch and time spent surrounded by friends and family. My mom made beautiful flower centerpieces and the cutest diaper cake. My sister, Kelly, really did an amazing job pulling everything together, along with my cousins and friends!
I also want to give a shout out to a few vendors who are super talented and helped make my shower pretty (and yummy!): Balloon Garland from Etsy, The Cookie Lady’s Daughter and Razzy’s Cake (beautifully designed by my MIL) in Billerica, MA. Also thank you to Dan’s cousins’s wife, Donna DeSimone, for taking my camera and snapping any pic that has me in it! My dress is a super old Donna Morgan and my nephews adorable pink polos (with T-Rex’s on them!) are from J.Crew Factory.
Please please please do yourself a favor and hire Veronica of The Cookie Lady’s Daughter for custom decorated cookies for your Bridal/Baby Shower, Bachelorette party, birthday party, etc. She is AMAZING and it’s always nice to support another young, local female entrepreneur : )
Max and Jack being goofy and I love it!
I told them if they smiled for my camera they would get to help me open the presents and below this is Max being like, “Jack are you smiling! I want to open the presents!!” Gosh, I love a good bribe.
Oh btw, we’re naming our little Baby C: Madison Alicia. (Pronounced “Ah-Lish-Ah” after my grandmother.) Maddie for short!
Thanks everyone who made our Baby Shower such a great memory and for supporting us as we become new parents! Baby C is already so loved!
