Baby Shower #1

Baby Shower #1 was hosted by Tresa's mother-in-law, Kathy and her sister-in-law, Kelly. It was a wonderful shower. There were about 25 guests and we all enjoyed a wonderful meal, great conversation and had fun watching Tresa open her gifts. Let me just say that baby boy is going to be one well dressed little man!

Tables were set outside on the patio next to the pool. I love their backyard and should have taken some photos. It is so beautiful and peaceful.

There were lots of little critters hanging here and there.

Kathy is an amazing cook and Kelly makes unbelievable desserts and candy. We had a fantastic salad, quiche, lox and bagels, chicken salad and corn muffins....and then dessert on top of that!





Here are me, my daughter-in-law Bernadette, Tresa, Kelly (who is expecting around Christmas) and Kathy.


Chris and his dad had been out playing golf and came home at the end of the shower. We got Chris to join us for a few pictures.


It was just such a great day. It makes me even more anxious for the little guy to make his appearance. I can't wait to meet him. We have another shower on Saturday....this is the one I am hosting. It is an afternoon tea at a bed and breakfast. I'll share pictures next week.

Have a wonderful evening everyone and I will chat with you soon.

What a nice thing to do, we don't have baby showers here in the UK and quite a few people still consider it bad luck to have any baby items in the house until the very latter stages of pregnancy and it's still quite traditional to pass items on from family member to family member, or friend to friend (recycling I suppose) Still the 'goodies' looked lovely.

Kathy, that was such a beautiful shower!! How exciting for all of you- Tresa and Bernadette are both such beautiful girls. It looks like the only weight Tresa has gained is in her belly- lucky girl has good genes!

The picture of the cat drinking in the post below is so cute!

This is such a great idea I wish we did them in England, I think one or two are now happening. It looks like you had a wonderful day, what special memories Tresa will have, and how loved this little boy is going to be. I love all the photo's is there anything more beautiful than a preganant woman? and as for that food WOW!! those cakes looked amazing. Good luck with the shower you are hosting and have precious day.
Love Jillxx

The food looks extremely photogenic ,and I'm sure it tasted heavenly.

The ladies look all glamorous in the picture , with Bernadette reminding me a bit of the italian actress Sophia Loren in her glory days.

I love your saying that"..that boy is going to be one well dressed little man". So be it!
