A Baby Boy Baseball Shower

My dear friend Jackie is pregnant with baby #3, but her first boy so myself & the girls in our small group threw her a baby shower on Saturday.
Jackie grew up playing softball & is a big baseball fan, and since this is their first boy, then a Baseball themed shower was the way to go! 
(Remember when I went to the Giants World Series game in 2010? That was with with Jackie & her husband! Read it HERE)

Here are the invites I made:
{Now available in my Etsy Shop}


The shower was at our friend Diana's house (since I was getting back from Tahoe the night before)

Drink Table:
(I brought the baseball canvases that are in Luke's Nursery)

 It was a beautiful August day & we ate outside.
 Shower Games:
Lunch. Chicken Salad, Fruit Salad & Rolls. Simple & Delicious.
 Dessert: Strawberry Shortcake. YUM.
 Favors:
 If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I give cookies as favors for pretty much EVERY party/shower I throw. I either make them or order them from the local bakery in town. Since I was in Tahoe until the night before the shower, I ordered the cookies for this shower. I ordered Baseballs. When I went to pick them up Saturday morning, there was a mix up with my order & they didn't have it. (PANIC!!!)  They had baseball hats for another customer later that afternoon that they were able to give me (free of charge).  The cookies were still cute & delicious even though it is not what I had in mind. It's all good!
Me & Jackie. Love this girl. I have been friends with her husband since 7th grade & we have been in a couples Small group with them for almost 5 years.
Yes. I am tall.

 Doesn't she look great?
 The shower hostesses. Love these Ladies.
Next shower will be for Dana, who is due with a baby girl in October!
 
I am so glad Jackie is having a boy. Her girls are just a few months younger than our girls (and great friends) so it just made sense that they had a boy also ;)
 They are some of our best friends & we couldn't be more happy for them. 
This sweet baby has been prayed about for a long time.
Can't wait for his arrival in the next couple weeks!
Yay for babies!
