Saturday, we celebrated the upcoming arrival of my niece, Maddi at a couples shower of family and friends.
Her nursery is monkey-themed, so of course the shower theme had a great jumping off point. My sister-in-law Jessica did a great job putting it together.
They even had advise cards for guests to fill out.
Diaper cake decorations...brilliant! There is a great tutorial on how to make them here.
One of my favorite things from the shower: Maddi cookies!
My other favorite thing from the shower, was that everyone brought a book to sign instead of a card so that they could start Maddi's library. I was so paranoid that they were going to get two of the same book, I picked one that I had never heard of in hopes that no one else would.
We ended up bringing:
She got some really great books...and surprisingly each one was different!
I can't wait to meet sweet little Maddi!
