Yesterday was my baby shower. It was so much fun! My Mom and SIL threw it for me at a local hotel. As you can see in the pics, the theme was moon and stars, just like Cooper's nursery. I know they worked really hard, and it all paid off. I got so much great stuff. And the best part is, I get another one tomorrow! A small shower, after work, with my coworkers. Everyone is bringing an appetizer, should be a good time. On to the pics (don't mind the extra chin and 34 pounds...can't wait to get back in shape!)

Cake and homemade goodies that represented Cooper's nationalities...


Appetizers and bar...


Seating arrangements...


Me and Mommy thanking everyone for coming...


Mom, friends and in-laws...


Niece, SIL and friends...


Dad's side of the family...


Mom's side of the family...


One of two gift tables...


DH is hoping he'll be a musician like daddy...


My little helper...


DH came towards the end and brought me flowers...


Cooper James blanket...


DH super excited about Cooper's first Hot Wheels...


My best friend's husband made this...


All the gifts in the garage, waiting for me to put them away!

Yep, it is the saying that is written on Cooper's nursery wall.


I just got done going through everything and bringing it in the house...I am sweating and exhausted!

Wow, looks like you had a fantastic time and received lots of goodies!

After seeing a couple of American 'Baby showers' I think perhaps our two countries view them a little differently or perhaps its an individual thing. You guys seem to go ALL OUT! Huge cakes, formal settings, official speeches and the like.
Here in N.Z its hosted at your house (or someone elses) with maybe 10 people max, we all just sit around, chatting, eating basic finger food and perhaps a cake and play some very informal and hilarious games like "guess the poo in the nappy" hahaah The gifts we receive are almost always clothes or toys or bathing gear to the value of about $30 USD (more from rellies and close friends)

Are most Baby showers in the US quite an event? Or is it individual thing.

The average baby shower where I am (east coast Canada) is much more how you described Sarah.

YAY looks like sooooo much fun

I have never had a baby shower before and only been to a few so they don't seem to be huge here either

Oh I definitely think it's an individual thing. My best friend's shower was just like you described. And I had my choice between having it at someone's house, or having it at a hotel/restaurant, and since I have a huge family, I felt this was a better setting. My wedding shower was at my mom's house, but it was in the summer so we were able to do it outside, under tents. We had about 60 people for that (it was co-ed). I believe we were at 40 for the baby shower.

Sarah, what you described is much more the "norm" I think. Every shower I've ever had or attended was similar to that description.
