My brother-in-law and sister-in-law are expecting our very first niece or nephew (and their first child) in March. We are super excited to be the favorite aunt and uncle, and helped throw a family shower over the holidays so Ryan’s family from Tennessee could all be involved.
Meet mom and dad:
It was held at a local pizza parlor. I was trying to connect to a “bun in the oven” theme. But instead, it’s a “pizza in the oven” shower. I was very inspired by this awesome bun in the oven shower at Frosted Events. Here’s the invite I created (in Microsoft Word… I’m such a graphic designer):
As a note – the name of the personal pan pizzas at the pizza parlor are little joes.
You can tell me how clever I am. I’ll wait.
Here are a few other photos from the shower. Ryan and I decorated with pom poms, alphabet blocks and scrapbook paper. (As a side note, my husband was such a good sport about helping with this shower. So thankful for him.) I also cut little baby feet out on the Cricut. I think it turned out looking festive.
For food, we ate the pizza, cookies and cake.
Congrats, Adam and Keri! Looking forward to meeting the little one.
And, as a side note… when the teenage waitress came into the room to talk to Ryan and I, she looked directly at my belly when I said it was a baby shower and said, “Oh, wow. That’s great.” She clearly thought I was the mom-to-be. I set her straight. Really quickly. (Because in case it wasn’t clear, I’m not pregnant. Sorry, mom.)
Can I blame it on the horizontal stripes? Although this is the second time someone thought I was pregnant…
