Baby Boy Bow Tie Shower

On Saturday a group of girls threw our friend McKinsey a bow tie themed baby shower. It was super cute and fun. We cannot wait to meet her little man, Ford, in March! Here are a few of the shower details…

We added tons of framed pictures of McKinsey as a baby around the house. She loved it.

We had lots of yummy food too.

The country ham biscuits and the parfait bar were personally my favorite.

Guests were asked to self address their thank you card envelope so we could save our soon-to-be mama some time writing her thank you notes. The sign says “Please help our mommy to be by making yourself the addressee!”

 The party favors were bags of M&Ms tied up to look like bow ties.

Baby Ford was so showered with love and gifts — a success!

    I just love each and every post you write and this one is one that makes me squeal! I'm about to get married in June but can't wait for years down the road (hopefully not TOOOOO LONG) that I can start thinking of and planning for sweet parties like these! Ek! And no lie, sweet Caroline is by far the most precious little one I have ever seen. That smile melts my heart every time!!!

    Such a cute shower! Great details! LOVE the parfait bar! This past weekend I debated between parfait bar and DIY trifle bar- will have to do the parfait bar next time (much healthier than the brownie crumbles and toffee bits I offered!! haha).
