I've already started on the invitations and I found a great little bed and breakfast in a neighboring town that I think will be the perfect place for an afternoon shower. We use to have meetings there when I worked at the Chiropractic Office. It's an old Victorian Painted Lady. Here is the link. If you scroll all the way to the bottom and click on "other guest spaces", you can see some of the inside of the house.
I thought this location would be a little different and the owner is wonderful. We would have finger sandwiches, scones, jam and what she calls "dainties"....little desserts, and then of course coffee, tea and lemonade. I'm really excited.
I've been all over the Internet looking at party favors that I could make, cake ideas and other decorations. I love this kind of stuff. Tresa doesn't like games and neither do I, so I don't have to worry about that. I love this little cake from marthastewart.com. Isn't it darling? Not that I would be making it, but I'm sure some wonderful bakery could!
I will share pictures of things I make for the shower as we go. Got any great baby shower stories or ideas you would like to share? I'm all ears!
