Showering Baby Jaxon [A Woodland Themed Baby Shower]

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

On Saturday, I helped host a woodland themed shower for Baby Jaxon! I am so excited for Dak & Kayla as they begin their greatest adventure yet-becoming parents! I remember when Dakota was born and being there as he grew up. It is going to be so fun to now watch him become a Dad and be there while his little one grows as well. Come August, I will be an Auntie once again! Bring on all of the newborn snuggles...

Anyways, the idea was to have a co-ed baby shower for Mom and Dad-to-be, but with Dak's new firefighting schedule, these things do not always go as planned. He was on a fire so was unfortunately not able to be there for the festivities. I made sure to document as much as possible so he can still see what a beautiful day it turned out to be although he was greatly missed!

 We kept the food simple and light and served chicken salad croissants, crackers, dips and fresh fruit. We also served "pond punch" which looked so legit that I think people were probably nervous to drink it and "morning dew" water. For dessert I made the owl cupcakes. So easy and fun!
The guys who did come were all first timers to baby showers and it was hilarious to watch them interact and participate in the games! I had a late night diaper station set up, made a printable of baby predictions + advice, and then played the name the baby animal game. My dear and darling husband took it upon himself to write "winner" on his and I died laughing. I also loved reading what everyone wrote on the diapers!
 My other little nephew just soaking in the last few weeks of being the only baby boy in the family. That face melts me into a puddle!
Mama-to-be was absolutely glowing and I enjoyed being able to help plan and organize the party because we all know I love an excuse to throw a party! The best part was they were showered with lots of love and much needed items, so now the official wait is on for baby to join us and then the real fun begins!
