A Beautiful Baby Shower

I am a blessed woman to have amazing family and friends who love and support me!  This past weekend I enjoyed a beautiful baby shower in honor of my little boy Eliott James!

First let me start by showing you how incredibly cute the invitations were!  I love the idea of natural browns and lace doilies.

 This was also added into the invite to encourage anyone who wanted to help build baby’s bookshelf!

We played some fun games and of course opened gifts!  I was so honored to have my Pastor’s wife Pam come and share a beautiful devotional.  She read one of my favorite verses, reminding all of us that children are indeed a blessing!

“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.” – Psalm 127: 3-5

I also took a minute to thank everyone for coming and supporting our little family, then I had my mother and mother-in-law stand up as I thanked them for how they raised my husband and I, for pouring into our lives and loving us as they have and continue to do!  It brought tears to my eyes, and I am glad I was able to honor them for all that they have fulfilled through motherhood!  I am excited to join them in the journey!

A few more random shots of the decorations!

I want to give a shout out to my girlfriends who put so much time and energy into giving me such an awesome shower!  They went above and beyond…I am so appreciative!  Thank you ladies for being creative, for making the whole day wonderful, and for loving me so much!
