Showering Cara & Caden

My visit to Nipomo last weekend happily coincided with the baby shower of one of my very dear friends, who is expecting her first child this June.  Cara's mom and sister put together a beautiful shower for sweet baby boy Caden, scheduled to make his debut in just a few short months!

Mommy-to-be and me.  Friends since junior high.

Welcome parfaits greeted guests at the door!

Pretty funnels held chocolate covered pretzels and other treats.

How gorgeous is their home?? Well done BFD and Julie!

Shower games were kept to a minimum - which kept guests' enjoyment at a maximum!  We guessed the number of "belly" buttons in a jar (I was off by 340, whoops) and wrote welcome notes to the baby for Cara and Will to open after Caden's arrival.  No taste-testing of pureed baby foods or guessing the true identity of looks-like-poo substances mushed into a diaper (thank goodness!).  Just delicious food, good friends, lively conversation and lots of laughs - these ladies really know how to throw a classy party.

Homemade Nutella Heath Bar croissants. To die.

Lots of sweet treats to choose from!

Fun gifts and, of course, lots of oohs and ahhs. This is going to be one very well-dressed little man.
And always there to help - why just one Alyssa when you can have two?!

Thank you for the invite to a lovely shower and congratulations to Cara and Will!
Can't wait to meet the little bugger.
