One Weekend, Two Showers

Last weekend I had the honor of co-throwing two showers; a baby shower and a wedding shower for two very dear friends of mine.

{A Rainbow Baby Shower}

Christina and I were friends from high school who lost touch during college. Shortly after we both graduated and I moved back to Minnesota I found myself attending the same church as Christina. Over the years Christina and I have thrown many parties together, were roommates, co-lead a Bible study together and had many other fun adventures. Last weekend my friend Kayla and I threw a fun and colorful baby shower for the happy mommy-to-be at Kayla's cute home in St. Paul.

We had all of the girls decorate onesies and they turned out so cute, everyone had such a fun time being creative. 
Our theme was a rainbow theme. Kayla made a beautiful and tasty colorful cake, we also served colorful fruit kabobs, meat, cheese & crackers and skittles. 

{A Wedding Shower for Kristi}

On Sunday we threw a wedding shower for my dear friend Kristi. Kristi and I first meet years ago when we were both in our friend Amanda's wedding. It was so fun planning a shower for Kristi since 5 years ago Kristi and I were helping to throw a shower for Amanda, and this time around Amanda and I were throwing a shower for Kristi.
We actually held the shower in the meeting space of the hotel that I work at. The space worked out perfectly for the shower!
We offered quite the spread of appetizers and snacks. 
Buffalo Chicken dip with celery and pretzel crisps for dipping, corn & black bean salsa, make your own fruit pizza bar, veggies and dip and chicken salad in wanton cups. 
One of the games we played was 'He Said, She Said'. We used mustaches and lips for the game to denote who said what. The 'staches and lips were quite a hit with the entire group snapping pictures and playing with them. 
(me, Kristi, Amanda and Tanaya)
You can't have a bridal shower without a picture of Kristi and her maids, and who can resist the lips and 'staches! 

December will be a very fun month for both of these ladies! Christina is due with her little one the first week of December and Kristi is getting married December 29th! 


  1. Becca, I absolutely adore those painted onesies! What a fun way to celebrate! And, my bridal shower was the most amazing shower ever! The lips and 'staches were a hit and we can't wait to put them out at our wedding! Love this entry! Love you! Xoxox

  2. What fun looking showers! I might have to steal some of these ideas for a baby shower I'm throwing this weekend.
