Showered with Baby Love


This past Sunday, I had my first baby shower down in Newport Beach...where I grew up!  It was such a lovely shower...my family and friends were there...and Baby Schue got ridiculously spoiled!  ;)  Get ready for some picture overload!!!


My beautiful and gracious host...she did SUCH an amazing job.  She opened her home and completely transformed her living room...


 See what I mean!


All of the centerpieces were arranged by the host...she's such an amazing planner!


I love how the blue and whites tie in the boy theme!  :) 


Ryan and I as babies!


The mimosa bar! 



Gorgeous chandelier!



Ice tea beverage station


Letters to Baby Schue...love this touch! 


Boxed lunches to keep the shower easy breezy! 


Handmade cupcakes...peanut butter, raspberry and red velvet!  Yum! 


The favors...little vanilla macaroons!


The co-host...my best friend from college!  


You may recognize this beautiful face...Courtney got to be there!  So fun!


So fun opening darling gifts...with my mom!


The auntie-to be!


Friends since high school!  You probably recognize them from all the wedding posts this week!  ;)

My dress is by TBags {Andee wore it to her shower here!}  I searched high and low for the dress and finally found it here.

All in all, it was a great day!  I felt super blessed to be surrounded by all the people I love most and have them share in on this special time of my life.  Can't wait for Baby Schue to make his debut!!!

  52. I adore the desk the mimosas are on and the cart the ice tea is on. She has some great pieces.

    At the baby shower I hosted in January, we did the "wishes for baby" too. Not planned but so glad this happened...mama-to-be read them all and we had to guess which guest wrote it. Such a special keepsake and something I will do at future baby showers.
