bows & bowties.

a few posts back, i told you that i would blog about the baby shower pam, denise, tara and i threw for lyndsay {SIL, and fellow blogger} and jake {brother}.

they have made the very courageous decision to NOT find out what they are having, which meant we needed to throw a gender neutral shower.  tara came up with the idea to have a bows & bow-ties theme.  tara, pam and denise did most of the work as i am in australia so it's easiest to say that i can only take credit for the labels, invitation... anything that went on paper.  they did the rest, which was A LOT!

the venue was a local restaurant called helen fitzgeralds - delicious food - and we just added a bit of decor.

the invitation

the guests got to wear a bow or bow-tie, depending on if they thought lynz is having a boy or girl. 

we asked the guests to bring a book in lieu of a card.

CAKE POPS {many thanks to pam for figuring out the perfect recipe weeks in advance to make these perfect} in mason jars with burlap table runners

a little "wish" list for the guests to fill out for the baby (little m&m)

menu frames

tara had the fabulous idea of doing a trail mix bar... it was a huge hit!

mom-to-be... isn't she adorable??

we took a group photo with everyone who thinks it's a girl... they won, but it was close.

and the boy votes... we will see who is really right in a few weeks!!

again, the shower went off without a hitch and a HUGE thanks to tara, pam and denise for all the planning!
