I’m FINALLY getting to posting pictures of my baby shower, which was a MONTH ago. WOW! Time flies. I’m officially in the “nesting” season but I wanted to be faithful in documenting this miracle’s life.
We decided to have a desert themed baby shower to pay homage to our baby’s name–Phoenix 😉
This day was definitely one I had been dreaming about for a long time.
Actually, I’ve always kinda hated how corny baby showers can be.
But once the desire to have a baby starting growing and then going through a season of infertility, a baby shower become symbolic of a dream becoming a reality.
So life was all about finding cacti for a few months. And I’m STILL subconsciously looking for succulents and cacti without realizing it lol.
We looked for things on amazon, warehouses, Hobby Lobby and Michaels.
We also used a lot of things we already owned and repurposed them.
The books used to add height to decor were library books that we wrapped up with packing paper.
My favorite piece of decor was the cactus we found at Hobby Lobby. It’s the cutest thing ever!
I am incredibly grateful for my family who helped pull this off and made this day extra special.
Special shout out to my sisters and a couple of my closest girlfriends who went the extra mile to celebrate this day!
I’m incredibly grateful for the friends and family in my life who have held me up, encouraged me, and given me so much love in this whole journey.
This baby is loved and cherished so much and that makes this mama beam with joy and pride.
The best part of the entire day was opening gifts with my hubby. He is the best daddy ever already. And I was overjoyed to be experiencing this moment with him. WE ARE GONNA BE PARENTS! HOLY MOLY!
I hope you enjoyed seeing this miracle literally in motion. And I hope this encourages you to see GOD’S faithfulness and to be hopeful in the waiting. And if anything, maybe you found some party decor inspo while you were here 😉
Some funny things that will make us NEVER forget this day:
1. I strolled into the baby shower late without notice, very casually, and so we re-enacted my entrance to be silly.
2. A few of my family members got a stomach bug right after the baby shower and were sick for a couple of days. Surprisingly, I do not get sick.
3. We had tacos for lunch at the baby shower. They were delicious and a major hit!
