We held my sister's baby shower this weekend. At the counsel of Carrie and hostess with the mostess, we put together a terrific Rubber Duckie themed shower.
Here is the proud mother and father-to-be. Her shirt was fantastic at disguising her baby bump, but you can see it if you look closely. It doesn't seem like she's put a pound anywhere else on her body.
We held the shower at Station 885 in Plymouth, MI. We had a nice fireside room all to ourselves. Each of the tables was decorated with floating ducks, blue jewels, mirrored disks and flowers.
My mother did a terrific job with all of the prizes. There were more than enough, almost three prizes per attendant! She had lemon flavored duck chocolates, mint covered Oreos, hand knit washcloths with soap, bath salts (lemon orange or lavendar), bracelets (on rubber duckies), and cards printed with my younger sister's own floral photography. All homemade!! I had to take a few prizes for myself!
The cake was also very special. Mom gave Busch's Value Land a couple of ducks and asked them to make a pond scene. They went to town. There were even small butterflies, dragonflies, and jelly bean rocks.
I can finally show off the knitting that I made for Chris. This is a cabled baby blanket from Debbie Bliss "Simply Baby." I made it with Di.Ve Zenith superwash merino. The turquoise is a powerful color, but will stimulate the baby and go well with their lighthouse/fish themed nursery and baby toys.
She received many great gifts, store bought and homemade, including several crocheted blankets, baby sweaters, hand sewn bibs and so on. That baby is going to be loved by many! I can't wait to meet him/her!
