Mustache and Bows Baby Shower

So sorry for the lack in posts…it’s all for good reason, we promise. Jodi welcomed a sweet baby girl two weeks earlier than expected. She is so beautiful, and we are so blessed!  Mom and baby are fantastic…dad too! 🙂

Speaking of adorable new babies, Kristen, just had a lovely baby shower that we’re so happy to share with all of you…thanks to wonderful pics by Meredith of Meredith Moran Photography.

From Casidy of Meohmy Design: “Since we didn’t know the gender of Baby Abell we wanted to come up with a fun and cute theme that’s a little different than the normal grey and yellow. We used mustaches + bows as our starting point and created the shower around that. We kept the color scheme mostly neutral (whites and greys) but added in the color pop through the mustache and bow details…straws, food cards, etc. Instead of playing traditional shower games, we wanted to leave Baby Abell with warm wishes; a cool and unique keepsake for the parents and for the child as he/she grows up. Favors sometimes get tricky but we didn’t want the guests to leave empty-handed. So, we kept within our theme and made little stickers saying “Kristen’s about to pop” that were stuck onto bags full of sweet kettle corn.”
