Babies Shower: Food & decorations

Last Saturday was my "Babies Shower." Many times when I thought I was going to go into very early preterm labor, I told myself, "You just have to make it to the shower! You just have to make it to the shower!" I knew my friends had been planning something special for a long time and I really didn't want to miss it (almost as much as I didn't want the twins to come out early).

Well, I made it. Everything was amazing and far exceeded any expectations I could have had: the food, the company, the photo booth, the baby libs, the gifts, the favors. A lot of love, time and hard work went into this shower and I love my friends who put it all together so much.

Here are some pics of the fete: food & decorations. I will do another post about the photo booth, gifts & favors. There was so much amazingness that it really can't be contained in one blog post.

Food & drink: breads, cheeses, salad with beets, grapefruit and goat cheese, caprese salad, tapenades, fruit, sparkling drinks, desserts...

A little sneak peek of Gwen's favors hanging in the window and the gifts:

Orbs! In turquoise, gray and yellow. And Aubrey! In stripes.

Okay, that's all for this post. More to come!
