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 décor…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.
