I came across these photos recently and thought it would be fun to share some memories from my baby shower that took place in 2011. The shower was a small and intimate affair that my dear friend Alex Thompson Keeling planned with the help of my mom and Candy Cope (Christopher’s mom). Our friend Mimi Brown did all of the beautiful flowers.
The food was delicious! We enjoyed a brunch style meal that included leek and asparagus quiche to banana walnut bread and waffles. The spoons shown below are creme brûlée vegan style!
It was such a day filled with delicious food, colorful flowers and dear friends and family. I am so grateful to Alex and Mimi who organized it!! A fun thing- we asked all of our loved ones to suggest names and place them inside “the baby name jar.” At the end of the party we read them. Candy, Christopher’s mom, put the names Bear and Blu independently in the mix. Although we didn’t decide on Bear’s name until a few days after his birth, I love that Christopher’s mom was the one who thought of both of Bear’s names!
I’m excited to share even more motherhood moments and tips on baby showers with you in my book, The Kind Mama. Have you had a baby shower? How did you celebrate?
