Over the past couple months I've hosted two showers for two individuals that I really admire. One was about to have her second child, a boy to go perfectly with her sweet little girl. The other? She married my awesome brother-in-law, Jacob. And she is just as awesome. We are so excited to have her in the family. I wanted to document the parties so I can remember for future showers (and maybe you can use some of the ideas).
Shower #1: Baby Boy Shower--"Blue Skies"

Shower #2--Bridal Shower--"Birds of a Feather"

White Origami Cranes hanging from the ceiling (provided by Michael, age 8, and groom and anyone else around who knew how).

Ask the groom questions beforehand on video and compare answers with bride.
Just wanted to say I couldn't have done this shower without Rebecca!
After looking at the pictures I realize I need a good camera. These don't even give it justice. Hmmm, I have a birthday coming up...
