10/2015 UPDATE: I updated the party supply source list at the bottom of this post with almost everything we used (or a similar substitution). Enjoy!A couple of weeks ago my mom, mother-in-law, and sisters-in-law threw me a beautiful "Welcome to the World Baby D" baby shower. While I saw bits and pieces of what my mom was pulling together (and let's be honest--helped with a couple of tiny DIYs), I was mostly in the dark! Can I just say, not knowing the details is quite painful for a party planner?! I suppose it's nice not to have to stress about it but I think I stressed more with hoping it was going to turn out okay, hoping my mom wasn't feeling overwhelmed, and hoping all the co-planners were doing ok! In the end, stress wasn't at all necessary! Besides it being on a weekend in the way-too-short-and-way-too-precious-new-England summer (i.e. many people already having other plans), it was beyond perfect. And the people who could make it (including one of my dearest college friends who was visiting that weekend!) were the perfect mix of people I hold dear! It was a lovely shower and a lovely time and I'm so thankful! So enough chatting. Here's a peek!
