Westin's First Shower

Cody, Westin and I were blessed with an unbelievable baby shower this past weekend. We were so blown away with every one's generosity! Thank you to everyone that was involved! Here are a ton of pictures to enjoy. :)

The hostesses knew I loved birds and nests and had so many special touches. It was beautiful!



I love seeing Westin's monogram.

I loved all of the natural elements and loved how this beverage dispenser looked like a cloche. :)

Even the punch bowl was on a nest!

The wonderful hostesses.
Mrs. Rush, Leah, Me, Elizabeth, Christina and Mrs. Ray

Me and Katie (Cody says we are "cheesin" in this picture.)

Me an my Mom

Leah made this adorable onesie.

Like I said, we were completely blown away! This is everything after we unloaded it from our car and Elizabeth's car. Unbelievable.

Everyone at the shower wrote a message on a diaper. Some were sweet and some were funny. Here are a few. You might have to click on the picture to see it better.

I thought this was such a cute idea! When we use these diapers I will be remembering the special shower that we had.

Isn't it amazing to see all these nice things that others have provided for your baby? Very humbling, isn't it? People are so generous.

What a special shower. And how awesome is all the loot that you and Westin received! I love that diaper idea - I don't think I'll be hosting any baby showers any time soon - but when I do, I'd love to use that idea. You're looking good girl! It's getting so close!!

Girl with the Curlz said...

What a cute shower. I have two showers coming up in March. What color is your stroller/car seat? My mom and dad got us the same Chicco set. Ours is red. We love it. Little Kyle is going to look so cute in it.

Karen said...

Beautiful!!!

Helen Joy said...

I've been meaning to email you for a long time because your blog name inspired me to do a Bless Her Nest baby shower for my friend who just had twin girls. It was so cute and I even did those nests (the haystacks). I thought I had invented them:-)
I thought it was such a nice, natural, not overbored, theme. Your shower turned out gorgeous! I'll have to post pictures whenever I can and I'll let you know. It was almost two months ago though:-)

Southern Fried Gal said...

Wow - I LOVE the shower decor! Natural elements rule with me. You got a haul! You deserve it. Can't believe you are 34 weeks already! Are you still down my way? We should meet for lunch sometime.

Design Apprentice said...

Shannon,
You look adorable pregnant, it is obvious how loved your baby already is, what a blessing!

I'm sure you saw pottery barn's magazine this month, it's all nests and birds.

Loved these Chargers and they reminded me of you: http://www.potterybarn.com/products/bird-nest-charger/?pkey=cwhats-new-dine-entertain
