Showering Baby Maya

My sweet friend, Katie, is expecting a baby girl in April. Back in January we had a shower at my house to get her ready for Miss Maya Jane’s arrival.  We used her nursery colors along with a book theme to decorate.  On the invitations we asked everyone to bring a children’s book in lieu of a card and included a book plate to write a personalized message to baby Maya.  Such a great keepsake for her to look back on when she is older, and she now has a full library of books!  And surprisingly, I think she only received one duplicate book.  We had various different breakfast foods, including donuts, green eggs & ham, fruit salsa, kolaches, & a yogart bar.  My friend, Ashley, who makes AMAZING cakes, made the beautiful cake that went along perfectly with the d├ęcor…not to mention it was delicious. 

We can’t wait to meet sweet Maya!


Katie would probably kill me for this picture, but I love it!  I got her a “Little Jane Austin” book.  Jane Austin is one of Katie’s favorite authors, and Maya’s middle name is after her.  I saw this book on pinterest and new I had to get it.
