two babies that is.
Dana and Blake’s son and daughter.
We teamed up with Jackie to throw a double fun baby shower. Yeah, it rained. And we had to move inside and get creative. But it was an overwhelming success.
First, we made some invitations….
with boy and girl buntings sewn on!
The theme was “The best things in life come in pairs!” and featured favorite pairings on the menu.
PB + Js, peas and carrots pasta salad, tomato and mozzarella skewers, chicken and ranch (a dana fav), chips and salsa…
Really though best of all was the dessert bar. Cookies and milk. YUM!
We turned the living room into baby central with a clothesline of baby outfits picked out just for the babies. (plus clean-up was easy… all the clothes went home with the mom-to-be!) Guests sat around and played some games about guessing words in nursery rhymes and a trivia game we made up called “The Math of the Blana Babies.” Clues had numerical answers (which could be found on the Blana Babies blog…) and were put into equations for everyone to solve. It was challenging, but Dana thought it was quite entertaining.
Presents were opened… and boy those babies are going to have the CUTEST outfits! They got lots of great things in general, but clothes for the twins are just so so darling. Because there are two cute babies!!
Also, throughout the whole time there was a little photobooth going on in D’s room. Jackie set up the camera on a tripod with a remote so people could go in there and snap away! B made bunting like in the invitation for guests to stand under. At the end of the party, the bunting went to it’s new home in the nursery!
Here are a few good shots, although my favorite goes to the expression on Baby M’s face when Dana tells her she is having two babies.
Ok Babies, we cannot wait to meet you in August!!!!
