awaiting baby emme {baby shower}

My dear friend Briana got married to Patrick last summer and now they are expecting their first child (a girl!) this summer. To celebrate, some of her friends threw her a sweet, relaxed baby shower with lots of good food and conversation and adorable baby gifts, of course! The decor featured simple embroidery hoops with neutral fabrics.

Along the lines of a sewing theme, the favors for guests were small mason jars turned into pincushions with a sewing kit inside.

Since the shower was in the afternoon, we served coffee, tea, and sparkling sodas from Trader Joe's with light finger foods as well as cookies and cupcakes for dessert.

And of course, the gifts got many oohs and ahs! The grandma-to-be had been busy making treasures for her new granddaughter, including a sweet Japanese doll. 

It was a beautiful, relaxed afternoon, perfect for this mom-to-be!
