Baby Shower for Rebecca - Oh Baby!

Shirley (grandma to be) and Rebecca 
 Jennifer Robbins ~ of J. Robbins Florist 

 Wheatgrass & Gerber Daisies 

Wonderful chicken curry salad prepared by Patty 

Baby Shower Pop quiz 

Rebecca's baby shower was thrown last Saturday at Tacoma Lawn & Tennis Club. The weather was absolutely perfect & the group of gals that gathered to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Rebecca and Steven's baby made it an afternoon to remember. The shower was hosted by a group of friends. It is a nice way to split up the responsibilities that come along with throwing a shower. I was in charge of the games and flowers. Jennifer, our friend who is a florist and I created the flowers for the day. I met Jennifer at her studio Saturday morning (I love to visit her and spend time in her studio it is so inspiring! ) and we created 10 clear glass cubes filled with wheatgrass and gerber daisies to fill the room with color.  The flowers were so simple to do and boasted a creative presentation for the gerber daises. We played 2 games, the Ribbon game and a Baby Pop Quiz. I found the Baby Pop Quiz by Twig & Thistle on Etsy. I purchased & downloaded the template and was able to personalize all the questions. I would highly recommend this for any shower - the presentation is so cute and it adds a personal touch to the shower. Congratulations to Rebecca and Steven!
