A Seuss-tastic Shower

Last Saturday I had the privilege of hosting a baby shower for my good friend, Renee.  Renee and I have known each other since high school (Plano Dance Force, what?), and even though we went our separate ways to college (she went far, far away to Indiana University), we reconnected upon college graduation and lived together for two years. I have such fond memories of that time. Renee was going to law school at SMU and I was just trying to make a buck. We were both broke, but managed to have some really fun times! Now I have a gaggle of lawyers to call upon should I need them 🙂

Renee and her husband, Jacob, are expecting a baby boy the first part of November. Walt is super excited to have another boy to play with.  Their nursery is themed Dr. Seuss, which made for a super fun shower theme.  So much so, that we had to squash some of our ideas because they were so abundant.  The shower was so much fun to plan and it took every one of the seven hostesses to make it possible. Here are the details:

Yes, I’m starting things off with the dessert table. Check out the fab cupcakes with cotton candy! They are Thing 1 and Thing 2! (Stori is a genius)

This cake was too perfect. It turned out so cute!

Cat in the Hat parfaits, of course!

An adorable candy bar, courtesy of hostess Jen. It was the party gift…

…. you filled your little sippy cup with candy!
The sweet mommy-to-be with her cake (Um, can you even tell she’s preggs???)
Dr. Seuss onesies on a clothesline. We also had Dr. Seuss books all over the house. Renee got to take them all home!

More food… Green Eggs & Ham! Kimmy mastered these beautifully!  They were made with hummus (so good)!

Renee and her mom… a very happy grandma!

Renee and her MIL… another happy grandma!

One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish… do you know how many fishes are in the jar?? (there were 403, to be exact)

They say it takes a village… well, it definitely took all of us to pull off the shower

More grub… Sam I Am Sam-wiches 😉

Hostesses again, with our hostess gift.

The Grammy Girls giving Baby H some lovin!!!
We had Dr. Seuss quotes scattered across the house. What an inspirational man he was! Renee took the quotes home to put in Baby H’s room 🙂

SUCH a fun shower and now I’m so ready to meet the little peanut!  He will be welcomed to a very loving family and a some pretty awesome friends 🙂 Congrats, Renee and Jacob!
