My cupcake toppers...the nursery has a whale theme, so I extended that to the shower as well. Colors for nursery are blue and orange. I added green for the shower.
Here is my mantle decorated for the shower. The chalkboard has a huge whale and says "Whalecome one and all". Baby will be named Adrian Marc. My daughter had the great idea of printing out a couple pics the couple had just had taken and put them in my window frame.
The mom-to-be's mother and I collaborated on preparing snacks. We had lots of goodies. The punch is a recipe I got from the 60th anniversary celebration I just coordinated a few weeks ago. I added pineapple sherbet. Could have drunk the whole bowl myself. Only tremendous self-control prevented me.
She received loads of great gifts. Here are a few of them.
The mom-to-be and me. The outside chalkboard sported two whales and said, "Whaley, whaley glad U came". I had a diaper wreath on the front door.
It was the most fun shower I have ever been at. We all had a whale of a good time. It was also my birthday, but that little fact was kind of downplayed.
