party: anchors away baby shower

Yesterday I hosted a nautical themed baby shower for my good friend and boss, Pam. She is expecting her first child in June, a little baby girl that she will be naming Katherine Elizabeth. I am so excited for her and the exciting journey of motherhood that is upon her. Being a mother is one of the most challenging but greatest experiences of my life and I love watching my friends become mothers. 

The shower turned out beautifully and Pam was showered with lots of love from family and friends. The lighting wasn't great so my pictures didn't come out as clearly as I had hoped but I wanted to share some of the fun details that went into this shower. Thanks to Pinterest and my own imagination, it turned out exactly as I had hoped. Anchors away!
Pink daisies for the table centerpieces.

Utensils wrapped in striped napkins with twine and nautical tags stored in blue and pink sand buckets.

Silly and sweet diapers for late night changes.

Wishes in a Bottle to share our wishes for Baby Katherine. The guests filled out the sheet and then put it inside of the wishes jar for Pam to read to Katherine when she's older.

The name banner and hanging onsies. I was thrilled to find a pink onsie with blue anchors that fit the decor perfectly.

The guest book table. Guests signed the inside cover of  "On the Night You Were Born" as a guest book for the shower.

The centerpieces on each table. A vase of pink daisies with seashells in the bottom. Adorned with sheer pink ribbon and twine. Seashells were also scattered on each table.

The beautiful cake that was made by a friend at church. I loved how it turned out. She's so talented!

The food layout. We served chicken salad sandwiches, homemade bread, cake, veggies, fruit, pretzels, Goldfish, nuts, mints, and punch. It was all so delicious!
