Good Friday Baby Shower

My best friend in the whole wide world is having a baby in May. Over Easter weekend we threw a small shower for her in my hometown-- no particular theme, no crazy games, just a sweet, intimate shower to express our love for her and our excitement over the soon-to-arrive Baby Boggs. While we planned to be outside on the terrace, Mother Nature decided to throw a tantrum with cold, howling winds and sheets of rain, so we strung up the bunting indoors and lit the fire. Here are some snaps from the festivities.

Guests signed a copy of "Where the Wild Things Are" (those are my mother's Easter decorations. aren't they lovely?)

Remember the sewing I did over spring break? Here are the final products!

The mama-to-be's little sister made these felt birds to hang in Baby Boggs's nursery. Since she couldn't be at the shower, we strung them up around the room as a little surprise. Aren't they sweet?

It's hard to believe the next time I see her, she'll have a little tater tot. If he's anything like his parents, he'll be funny and good-natured, and I can't wait to meet him.
