Kim's Baby Shower

On Saturday afternoon, two of my sorority sisters and I hosted a baby shower for Kim at my condo in uptown Charlotte!  We had a ball planning it!

Kim is doing a nautical theme for Jack's nursery so we carried the theme out for the shower too.

The menu:  pimento cheese triangular sandwiches (no crust on bread), chicken salad on croissants, fruit with dip, pita chips and garlic hummus and pumpernickel pretzels.

And a carrot cake (Kim's favorite) for dessert!  Those will be Jack's initials!

Sarah made these adorable whale cookies (from scratch!) and everyone got to take one home with them!

Sarah also made this clothes line and had some onesies draped across it!  Can you tell she's crafty?!

We also used Macaroni and Cheesecake's recipe for Carribean Fruit Punch.  It was delish.  We tried to carry the theme of blue, light blue and a lil red through the decorations.

Kim is in the corner opening gifts.  Before gifts we played a game where we passed around a big spool of string and everyone had to cut off a piece of string that they thought was the size of Kim's belly around.  Suz won but Kim's Mama was very close!!!

Sorority sisters!  Me, Ashley, Kim, Sarah and Suz....
 After everyone left, we had a toast to Kim!
Loved spending time with you girls and celebrating Kim and Jack!  He'll be here before we know it!  (She's due November 9th!)
