Baby Shower-“It Takes a Village”

September1

shower1

I was thrilled that the very first items that I prepared in my “almost finished” new kitchen were for the Rawdon Baby’s shower.

The radiant new Momma.

It takes many hands to raise a child AND to put on such a gorgeous gathering. Auntie Kristen was responsible for so many of the beautiful touches including these shadow boxes of the parent’s baby things.

This table (and another one) was bulging with beautiful gifts by the time all of the guests had assembled.

This image of the baby’s heartbeat graced the room.

This was such a sweet detail too.

shower11

Simple, yet so thoughfully accomplished.

Everything was ready for the guests’ arrival. Auntie K and her Bestie spent hours decorating to get everything just so.

That’s Momma in the top left, can you tell that she is pregnant from behind?

The food was placed out in advance so that everyone could leisurely partake.

The bounty!

The cupcakes (made by the photographer of the event) were exquisite.

I particularly loved these Portugese pastries and am hoping that I can get the recipe to share.

Momma, Glamma and Auntie.

shower19

The girl cousins (unfortunately another Momma cousin had to leave with the youngest attendee at the party).

Momma and Great Grandma-beautiful women, both.

Kath’s quote: “And we have learned that to raise a happy, healthy and hopeful child, it takes a family, it takes teachers, it takes clergy, it takes business people, it takes community leaders, it takes those who protect our health and safety, it takes all of us. Yes, it takes a village.”- Hilary Clinton

Live simply, laugh often, love deeply.
