a jungle themed babyshower and a girls weekend.

Last weekend the girls and I hosted a baby shower for our dear friend Shannon. Let me tell you, Shannon is such an amazing woman. I am honored to have her in my life. In fact, I'm honored to have each and every one of these ladies in my life. We have know each other since the first days of college and have been on endless adventures and travels together. Over the many many years we have grown together, grown apart and grown back together again.

I think we have an amazing story. We all have amazing stories of our friendships. These four woman have influenced my life in so many ways. These woman are not just my friends they are my inspiration and I know I don't tell them enough. I only hope to grow together and continue on our journey for the rest of our lives. Here's to making that beach trip work ladies!

We all pitched in and helped with the shower. Shannon's mother in law made the beautiful cake, we purchased jungle themed cookies as a treat to take home, we served small sandwiches, fruit salad, various dips, an olive and cheese tray and plenty of sweets. For the decorations, I sewed a banner which could be used later in the nursery. I found my inspiration here. I also made tissue paper pompoms from this tutorial. For the centerpieces I used vintage milk glass vases filled with greens and placed them on a piece of zebra or giraffe print scrapbook paper.
