a Boston shower for Baby G

Several weeks ago, my dear friends hosted a baby shower for me. I felt absolutely spoiled! And I can't believe how long it's taken me to get this post together.

Instead of games, we painted blocks for Baby G. They turned out to be so colorful and I can't wait to see our little one play with them someday!

We ate a lovely brunch complete with quiche, salad, yogurt parfaits and biscuits.

Guests were asked to bring a children's book in place of a card to jumpstart Baby G's library. I loved seeing which books friends chose.

One friend brought a whicker suitcase full of books since she knows Baby G's dad is an avid reader.

Another friend told her almost four year old son, she was going to a baby shower. He asked "what's that?" so she explained it was a party before a baby is born. The next day before she left for the shower, her son said "Mommy, have fun at the baby bath!" So cute!

I was so blessed to be surrounded by friends I've know for the nearly five years I've been living in Boston: former roommates, my husband's classmates and neighbors. It was truly a special group of ladies!

The decorations were made to match the crib bedding, so I could reuse them in the nursery. See the dot garland behind us? It's now hanging in a window in the baby's room.

It was a very special time with friends. I will always treasure the memory of baby's Boston shower.


  1. So sweet and so much cuteness. The basket of books, I LOVE that idea. Seriously genius. What a great idea to decorate in the colors of the nursery so that you can then use them in there. Congrats again.

  2. what an adorable shower, beth!!! love the block idea!

  3. I love the block and book idea! so sweet. :)
