I feel incredibly luck to have such amazing friends and family who helped us put on a baby "party" to celebrate the upcoming arrival of our little boy! I was never one to want a traditional shower, and rather wanted a gathering of our closest friends and family to spend time together before life changes forever :)
During the celebration, we held a diaper raffle, where everyone that brought a pack of diapers got entered into a drawing for a prize from my store, Dream Like Trees! It was fun to bring items I'd made for people to win - it's one of my favorite reasons for being a crafter - creating things for people to love! Our raffle winners are pictured above.
We also held a Mario Kart tournament throughout the day, which the guys thoroughly enjoyed! Mario Kart is something my husband still loves, and I'm so happy we could incorporate special things about ourselves into our celebration for little Baby M. For me, that was making all of the decorations, including the photo backdrop that now serves as a focal point in the nursery, as well as having a waffle bar (shoutout to Leslie Knope!)
All in all, a beautiful day. We are eagerly anticipating the arrival of our little guy any day now!! We can't wait to show him the world.
A special shoutout to my incredible friend Liz for organizing, planning, and facilitating the party for us! And for coming up with the amazing name, Baller Baby Ball. I don't know what I ever did to deserve a friend like you!!
