Charming Baby Shower

My awesome friends, Amanda and Jennifer, threw me an amazing baby shower this past weekend.  They based the theme on the crib bedding I picked out for the nursery, chocolate and blue with elephants and giraffes. 

The hostesses - Jenn, Amanda, Mom
When I walked into the club house I was blown away be the decor, it was so charming!  To the right of the entrance there was a long table filled with breakfast tacos, a fruit tray, homemade coffee cake (super yummy!) and various other goodies and drinks.  In the middle of the room there were 2 huge plush toys (an elephant and giraffe) as center pieces on two of the tables and a beautiful diaper cake on the third table.  On the left side of the room all the gifts were piled around the cozy fireplace.

My friend Erika made an unbelievable cake that was to die for!  She even managed to get the fondant color exactly right, there were chocolate elephants marching around the cake and she topped it off with some totally cool fondant booties (all home made!).  This cake seriously tasted marvelous!

After brunch and some chatting we played a couple games and the winners received gifts from my friend Renee at Leopards and Lilies.  She made a block magnet frame, necklace and even created the gift bags for everyone to take home.  She is quite the crafty creator!

Then it was onto the cake and gifts.  Malek and I are so very grateful to have such amazing friends and family!  Baby Ryland received so many adorable outfits, hand made blankets, the crib bedding, and all sorts of baby necessities (and a couple mother necessities as well!).  A HUGE thank you goes out to everyone for their generosity, we really appreciate it!
