A Baby Blue Baby Shower!

I was so honored to throw a baby shower for my best friend, Sherri!! She gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Noah Ryan on January 22. He was 5 lbs, 9 oz. and 18 inches long. After a long, hard pregnancy, complete with MONTHS in the hospital and on bed rest, we were happy to throw a beautiful party welcoming Noah and Sherri home!

The traditional blue color was accented with the mom's favorite scheme of white and brown. Because of it being so close to Valentines day, we stretched a dollar for the florals, by using bunches of blue hydrangeas and white carnations. Lots of candlelight filled the room, since the shower was held on a Friday night. No cake, but a tower of cupcakes was the centerpiece of the food table and comfort foods such as quiches, quesadillas, and mini pizzas were enjoyed by all of the guests. We even had a signature drink called, "The Bubbly Baby Boy" (thanks Shannon!) which was a combo of champagne and white grape juice with a little blue food coloring. These were a major hit, even with the guys. I believe one gentleman even knocked back six! We wish Sherri, baby Noah, and all of the Calderon family all the best!
