A baby shower....and a baby!

 A couple months ago I helped host a baby shower for my sister Emily and niece on the way, Willow.
I was in charge of decor while Robin, Emily's mother-in-law, took care of the food and hosted it in her home.
 I made this frame into a chalkboard as a gift for baby Willow's room and figured it may as well be used at the shower since it's so pretty!
 This is our craft table, if you can see that small yellow book with pink's an A,B,C themed baby book for Willow, all the guests got to pick a letter and make their own page. 
It turned out SO cute, even the grandpas, uncles and daddy to be took part.

 Here's one of the lovely tables, we had three and each center piece was slightly different. 
I had fun making those little yarn balls, even more so because Emily got to have some for the nursery and I now have several looking cute around my living room! :)
 The gift table....she got some wonderful gifts, useful, functional and of course tons of adorable baby girl clothes! the ribbon chandelier looks only half as cute here as it is in person...
I'll have to get Em to send me some pictures of the nursery all finished and see if she can take a better one. :)
 Robin made these up for the favors, they turned out so darling! 

What baby shower is complete without pictures of mom and dad when they were sweet babies?
it's a must!
We also had the kisses there where you could guess the number for a prize.
 Tons of food! Seriously delicious, decadent, and oh so tasty food.
this only shows about half of it.
I ate too much.
So good!
 a few guests of the shower...all family actually! hehe only shot I got of the gift opening though.
I was in charge of the thank you list.
 The Lilley girls!
I love this picture!
And lastly, after the shower my mom came home with me and we whipped up this adorable bedding from materials chosen by Emily for baby Willows crib.
There's 3 sheets
A bed skirt
the pillow
1 large blanket for the crib or some nice tummy time on the floor 
and 2 small blankets for car seat and stroller use.(more portable)
it just turned out so cheerful and lovely I had to share.
and last but most certainly not least!
Here she all her new baby sweetness...
Willow Blue Mooney

I'm in love and can't wait to meet her and hold her.
Sadly, here I sit in California and they out in Colorado....
Why did you guys move away again?
