My girl lives in Asheville away from all her friends and family, so we (me and a bunch of her blogging friends) decided to throw her a VIRTUAL BABY SHOWER! WHAT?? WOOT WOOT!!!!! My girl needs some stuff. Baby chick four can't feel left out. They had donated most of their baby stuff thinking they were probably done and then decided four felt right:) So we are replenishing the stock!
Now my friend Alicia can throw a mean party...take a look HERE! This girl is good. So it's kind of a relief my shower can be virtual or there would be some major pressure. Major!
She loves vintage. Loves the look of anything old school. SO if I were planning a shower it would have some old chippy white dressers and lots of creams and yellows. It would have to have that table skirt for sure. She made me one almost just like it, so I know it looks JUST LIKE HER!
I'd drum up some baby pics of her and Jarrod. Maybe grandparents too. I'd have her mom send me toys or momentos from her childhood. We'd do it up. I'd try really hard to make her cry. She's not quite the emotional basket case I am, so it would be a challenge;)
We probably wouldn't play games. I'm not a fan of baby shower games and since this is my party we'd skip that;) We would however take lots of pictures...'cause that's what we do. I'd set up a photo booth with some wacky outfits or something and we'd make her try them all on!!! Ahhhh and maybe we would do a paint project. ONE giant participant crafty project that she could use later to decorate the baby's room. Wouldn't that be fun?!

And you know there'd be cake...preferably cupcakes:) And to go along with her vintage theme we would probably need some sort of white cupcake or something colorless...NOT! Oh no, not at my shower... ahem I mean Alicia's shower;) I prefer the ones on the left of course. How stinking adorable are those!?! Oh my word. But really they are all adorable!!!
And of course there would be gifts. This part kinda killed me cause I'm a need to know kind of girl. I NEEEEEEEEED to KNOW THE SEX OF THE BABY!!!!!! But I don't and I'm
First of all I stalked her on Pinterest and found this amazing little lamb print here. He/she had to have some new smelly goodness and a cute new bib...oh and a soft cuddly take along toy, and one of our favorite books of all time...Time for Bed. I used to read that to the girls every night before bed. Love that book! That's a start. I'll have to spoil him or her with an outfit or something gender related later I guess;)
If you know Alicia and want to throw her a shower too jump on board...grab the button and link up. There's a big giant lovefest going on at Amy's, Amy's, Amy's, Mary's, Suzanne's, Sasha's and Carissa's.
