Throw a shower for my sweet cousin on the seventeenth of July.
We're going through the list pretty quickly! So fun. I was so thrilled to do this shower for Ashlee. She is my husband's cousin and I love her. She and her husband are expecting their first baby, Eli, in the fall, and I am giddy with joy for them. She will be a great Mom.
The power of delegation is what helped this shower roll smoothly. When we planned it back in April, I knew I would have a one month old baby on my hands, so we divvied up the responsibilities. I did the invitations and the decorations and delegated the food and lots of help to family members and friends. My wonderful mother-in-law let us use her home. It was so fun.
The Little Mouse made an appearance, too. I'm so glad I pumped a bottle. I was busy and there were plenty of family members ready to pounce and take care of her for me!
Rather than order a cake, we chose to order cupcakes. The cupcakes came from a local cupcake boutique called Kupcakz and were amazing. We had four varieties: Red Velvet, Coconut, Chocolate, and Dirty Blonde, my personal favorite! YUM.
I went with a modern mom theme and found super cute decorations here!
And, true to form, Ashlee gave each of the hostesses thank-you gifts. Mine was a beach bag stuffed with adorable stationary, folders, and notebooks. Love it!

Have a lovely day!
