Happy Tuesday folks! Sorry about my absence yesterday, but I was still recovering from a very busy weekend. One of the things that kept me busy was that my mom, my niece, my cousin and I threw our friends a Harry Potter-themed baby shower!
Caitlin was one of my bridesmaids, and she and her wife are having a baby in July! We don’t know if they’re having a boy or a girl, but we do know that they love Harry Potter, so we decided that was the perfect theme for the shower!
My cousin Kim was in charge of the decorations, and she found this great banner, which we sent home with Caitlin and her wife Susie to put in their nursery:
Kim also incorporated Gryffindor colors in the balloons and tablecloths:
My mom got in on the decorating fun and covering the cushions of the wicker chairs with baby Harry Potter fabric:
Well, we knew that Harry Potter wasn’t a typical baby shower theme, so why go with typical baby shower food? We knew that both Caitlin and Susie (and well EVERYBODY) love tacos, so we had a taco bar! In order to accommodate all the guests, my mom prepared 18 pounds of taco meat. 18 POUNDS!
In addition, my niece made 3 types of cupcakes, including Butterbeer cupcakes!
We wanted to send the gals home with lots of clothing options for the little babe, so a onesie station was in order:
And to show that she was ready to celebrate HP-style, Susie represented The Boy Who Lived with this special mark in her hair:
All in all, everyone had a great time, and we can’t wait to meet this little one in July!
