A Simple Shower

Sarah, my roomie from college who now lives in NorCal, was visiting LA this past weekend for her PsyD graduation– so I planned a simple but sweet baby shower on Saturday with our closest girlfriends.

Shower colors were navy, teal, and gold. Paradise cake from King’s Hawaiian (best ever), cake stand from the Oh Joy for Target spring collection, diaper cake topper is the ever-popular Sophie the Giraffe teether, and real cake topper is DIY.

Btw, I made the diaper cake using a no-roll method (typically diapers are individually rolled up and rubberbanded). I found it to be much faster (and more hygienic, IMHO). In case you’re wondering, I used a total of 60 size 1 diapers to make the three tiers.

After lunch (catered from Panini Cafe), we decorated onesies with fabric paint, which turned out to be a stress-inducing activity for most of us (but… they turned out cute!)

Trying to take one group picture with a gorillapod and self-timer turned into 50… after this one, they mostly looked like this:

…and this is one of the better ones. 😉

Hooray Sarah! Proud of you and your doctorate, and so excited to meet your baby boy in a few months!
