These two ladies put so much time into the setup!
Thank you. I love you both!
I am overwhelmed by these pictures from my baby shower last weekend.
So much love, thoughtfulness and time was put into setting this up!
I am beyond blessed to have such amazing people in my life who made this all happen!
 
The baby shower was held at my house and was a surprise so I had to be out of the house by 10:30am so that the party planners could do all the setup.
At 10:30am I got in my car and went to get a manicure/pedicure.
Then at 1:30 I got my hair and makeup done by the fabulous Marina Mcavoy.
My sister scheduled all these activities for me to fill my day and pamper me! She is truly amazing.
Then at 4:00pm I showed up and was blown away by all the detail!
It was the most beautiful shower!

Most of the items you see in the pictures above (like the picnic table and bench) were made by my sister, brother and a friend - such amazing DIY projects!

I have to give special thanks to a few people who put so much into this:
1) My sister Stephanie who was the mastermind behind all of this. She came up with the theme and basically organized the entire thing! She has been planning for months!
2) My sister in-law Diana who helped Stephanie put it all together
3) My mom for making almost all the food
4) My mother in-law Maggie who made all the desserts
5) My sweet husband who kept it all a secret and helped plan and prepare the backyard
6) Marina McAvoy for the beautiful hair & makeup

And a big thank you to all my friends and loved ones who came to share in this special day and shower us with gifts and love!
This will be a day that I will always cherish!
It is such a an amazing blessing to have people in your life who genuinely care and share in your joys!

We have everything we need for the arrival of our son... it's just a waiting game now!

♥, Denise
