Whoa Baby!

by Meghann on January 20, 2014






Yesterday I had the privilege of attending the cutest baby shower for “Baby Baum“.



Let me just pause a second and talk about how adorable Mary is at 35 week pregnant. She is seriously my pregnancy idol. Not only does she look slammin’ in that Anthropologie dress, but she’s still logging miles in her running shoes. This momma-to-be rocks!

Mary’s sister and sister-in-law flew in to throw the adorable shower in her honor. I wish I had half the creativity of her sisters – these girls are impressive with their party planning skills! All of the little touches were flawless and the “whoa baby!” theme was perfect.




Mary and Marcus are waiting to discover the sex of Baby Baum, so everything was gender neutral. I loved the yellow and teal color theme.


The food was delicious as well. Homemade chicken salad, fresh berries, mini quiches, chocolate dipped strawberries, and fresh veggies.


And you can’t forget about the cupcakes!






And what’s a baby shower without games?



We teamed up for the “Name That Baby Tune” game. The host would play a tiny clip of a song and we had to guess the name of the song and the artist. All of the songs had “baby” in the title, so at least we had that going for us. Unfortunately it looks like 90s and early 2000 hits were our specialty. We failed big time at more recent numbers and classics hits.


We also played a game where the host would read a fact and we had to guess whether it was “mommy” or “daddy.” I was all set to put my Mary and Marcus skills to the test, until they started throwing out questions like “Who weighed more as a baby?” or “Who rode a bike first?” Yeah, we totally lost that one.

Last, but not least, there were presents.


Is it just me or is it 100 times more fun watching someone open presents at a baby shower instead of a bridal shower?


Mary had a photographer taking amazing photos of the events, so you should head over to her blog to check out more.


We can’t wait to meet you Baby Baum! But do us a favor and stay in there just a few weeks longer. We want to make sure you’re nice and strong when your mom takes you to your first book club meeting. ๐Ÿ™‚

What do you think – is Mary having a boy or a girl? My gut instinct says BOY!

When I first read the title, I thought you might be announcing a little something yourself…ha!

Love the look of those cupcakes! Very cute. The first of my friends have started having babies now and I had so much fun planning games to play last year. I’ve got another baby shower to attend in a couple of months time, this one for twins!

Adorable shower! She looks fabulous and I’m so impressed she’s still running! Yes, watching people open presents at a baby shower is much more fun than at a wedding shower.

Very cute decorations and colors for that shower. I agree, watching people open baby shower gifts beats watching them open wedding shower gifts!

Cute shower! I loved both my baby showers–we got some amazing gifts for our little girl!

It seems to be the year of the girl (all my friends are having girls), so I say girl!
