Photo from Danyelle!
So my roommates at Alt were Melanie & Karen. Melanie is having a baby in a couple months. I hadn't met Karen yet but she emailed and initiated the idea to have a baby shower for Melanie. I was immediately on board because, let's be honest: Melanie is amazing!
We decided to just have the shower in our hotel room to make it easy for everyone. We both tried to pack light things to use for props and decorations. It was hard because I pretty much wanted to pack my entire garage of props and things.
Brought an instax to capture all the guests that came to Mel's shower.
We did cupcake decorating.
Karen was pretty wonderful and coordinated all the good and cupcakes - isn't it amazing how you can plan something with someone you've never met? When we did finally meet, it was great because I already felt like we were friends. The food was actually suggested by Marta, catered from Cucina Deli.
Annie is so cute. Loved her necklace and her haircut too.
Melanie is just about the cutest pregnant person you will ever see!
I'll admit, I got teary-eyed when I first saw her & her little baby boy.
Loved hanging out with my fellow name-twin: Danyelle!
Karen had an idea to do onesie decorating, which was so super cute!
Can you believe she is 6 months pregnant? She is so tiny!!
Traveling for a shower? Pack flat / paper things. Karen & I both packed all the party stuff in our suitcases. We were going to make the garlands and everything but there would have been no time. Thank goodness for bhldn - that's where I got the all the decor like the garlands and wheel sets.
