On Saturday we celebrated one of my very, very best friends Amberlee with a Sweet Dreams baby shower for her baby boy. She’s only a couple of months (at the most!) from meeting her son, Carter Lee, and everyone who loves Amberlee couldn’t be more excited for her to become a mom!
Sweet Dreams Baby Shower
We held the shower in our hometown in Alabama, and three of Amberlee’s long-time best friends all came together with me to throw it. Because Amberlee is known for her love of candy, we had a candy bar set up along with the cutest little party favors that our friend Holly hand-made! These little tea bags were a hit!
Instead of a regular guest book, we ordered one of Amberlee’s favorite childhood books and asked guests to write messages to Amberlee and Carter throughout the book.
On the coffee table we left pens and these forms to fill out where guests could make predictions about Carter’s arrival and fill in a few other fun blanks.
I found the punch recipe on Pinterest here, and though it was supposed to be more bright blue than green, it was still absolutely delicious!
Of course no shower is complete without a cake, and we really enjoyed this one that we got locally here in Huntsville from Peggy Ann Bakery. Her prices were extremely reasonable and the cake was delicious! If you’re local, I’d highly recommend her bakery!
Hi! I’m a proud Army wife and mom to two little girls (ages 1 and 4), and I love sharing our lives with you. I blog all about motherhood, our time in the military, our travels, our meals, my fitness journey, my fashion favorites, and so much more. I truly enjoy sharing it all! I can’t get enough of birthday cake ice cream, weekend sunrise runs, or making my girls belly-laugh. I write almost daily about my family’s lives, and though I like to keep things light, I also share the messy parts too. Welcome! So glad to have you around. I’m active on Facebook and Instagram and would love to communicate with you there!
