baby shower for D&G

i was a little hesitant about helping plan a baby shower, having never helped out with one before, and wasn't excited about decorating in 'baby' theme .. but i love throwing parties and celebrations in this day where the trend of being traditional and the mentality of doing things a certain way because "that's how they're usually done" is gone ..  none of us girls were into the traditional baby shower agenda, thankfully (playing baby-related games, using string to see guess how big the belly is or feeding someone baby food come to mind)! we decided to make it co-ed, so that it would be more of a get-together for our friends .. we found the perfect spot for brunch in a semi-private room at B&O Espresso on Capitol Hill, whose staff was quite accommodating and helpful .. being in charge of decorations, i of course used my flowers from Dream Like Trees and made some super cute Papa, Mama and Baby Bear decorations, complete with Max crowns :)
congrats to Gordie, Danielle and soon-to-be baby Elizabeth!!

our handsome husbands can't resist a photo shoot :)
