breakfast at tiffany's baby shower

back in november, my best friend S threw a baby shower for me to celebrate baby sunshine. i've just now finally got all of my photos edited so i can share them. S hosted the party at my mom's house. it was a breakfast at tiffany's theme so all of the ladies wore black dresses and their favorite gems. i had several people tell me that it was the most elegant baby shower they've ever attended. 

breakfast at tiffany's is one of my all-time favorite movies. i love audrey hepburn. when we were in new york a few years ago, hubby and i got coffee and pastries and walked the tiffany's window display. my very own breakfast at tiffany's moment. 

i've been blessed to be showered with love by so many amazing ladies.
me with my best friend since high school, S
let me take you on a tour of the party. 
these were the invitations ordered from etsy
the theme was woven into every touch point...even the front door.

the decor was breathtaking. 



there were a few other special touches contributed by sweet friends.

my blogger friend Amira from shades of gray designs signs for baby showers that she sells in her etsy shop. She donated the sign (pictured below) to encourage party attenders to post their pictures on Instagram and Facebook using the hashtag #babysunshineshower. 

hint: if you attended the shower, you can still post your pictures using that hashtag and see pictures that others posted. 


my friend P, owner of cookie mama cookies, couldn't attend my shower so she donated fresh baked, custom designed cookies as party favors. her cookies were both darling and delicious. 


and the other party favors…


pearl hair pins and a candle in this darling box. my mom was in charge of the favors and she outdid herself. 

me and my mama

honestly, it was such a special day. one that i will never forget and cherish always. but even more than the theme, decor and amazing food…it was the people that made the day so unforgettable. it was a reminder of how blessed i am to have so many fantastic women in my life...who've all supported and cheered for me on this journey to baby.
