Baby Shower for Baby Girl Hughes

I blink and a week goes by.  Seriously.  

I have been meaning to post about the baby shower I helped host for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Hillary and John.  They are having a sweet baby girl in August, and Kevin, Luke, and I (along with a whole bunch of other people) can't wait to meet her!  

Kevin and I hosted the 'couples shower' at our home, with the help of some wonderful ladies.  We decided to keep it simple and do a brunch complete with a bagel bar, fruit, veggies, smoked salmon, donut holes, mini quiche, mimosas, and, of course, cupcakes!  I say simple because most of these things needed little to no preparation, which made the shower that much more fun!  

We used fresh flowers (thank goodness the peonies were in bloom!) in mason jars to decorate and also included a diaper wreath and rubber boot centerpiece to make it a little more 'baby showerish'.  Hillary is such a cute, trendy chic and is going with a chevron theme in Baby Hughes room.  I purchased  some great templates at mbradleydesigns and Michelle was fantastic to work with!  There were so many templates...an invitation, signs, water bottle covers, pretty much everything you could possibly think of!  Kevin was a sport and drew out a chevron pattern for the chalkboard that turned out great.  We also had a 'wishing tree' where guests could leave a 'wish' for Baby Hughes (didn't get a picture, oops!).  I was so excited that so many people participated!  Guests were also invited to predict the date Baby Hughes would arrive, along with her weight and length.  This was fun and everyone got into it.  It was a wonderful morning and I'm so glad it turned out to be a beautiful day.  Now, all we need is that baby!!
