Completely Awesome Baby Shower-For ME!!!

I truly have the most amazing friends! Hoosier Mom and another friend (who we'll call Cutie Mom-because she's cute as a button) threw me a baby shower today and it was awesome!  I was truly overwhelmed.  Hoosier Mom was very worried about making it perfect because I like to throw parties and do so often, but I told her that's just my thing and not to stress because I would be happy with anything.  I was just thrilled to have a shower.  She didn't listen and the results were outstanding.    They decided to go with a French theme and it was perfect!   For food we had Ratatouille, Quiche, Baked Brie, Crudite, Petite Fours, Punch, Wine and of course cake.  Hoosier Mom knows how to make a cake!

Look how beautiful this is!!!  The initials are Han Solo's real initials.  It was a white cake with chocolate ganache a raspberry coulie and white chocolate butter cream icing.  Decadent!

Hoosier Mom made the Petite Fours too.  The blueberry topped ones were with lemon curd and the raspberry topped ones were raspberry curd.  OMG, they were delicious!

The spread.  It was all delicious.  I only wish I had more room to eat!

Look at all the gifts!!!  Can you believe it?

Hoosier Mom and JAG's little sister (who arrived in country yesterday) made this diaper cake.  The center of it is a bottle of champagne.  Do they know me?

Cutting the cake.

Eating!  The best part.

The favors were little bottles of wine (tres chic) wrapped with little wrappers that matched the invites.

They played soft French music during the shower and the game we played was matching French words and phrases to common baby words and phrases in English.

It was really lovely and we got so much stuff.  We really needed it all too because poor Han Solo has pretty much nothing.  I have about a hundred photos of me opening gifts, but I didn't want to bore you with them.  It was a fantastic shower and I am so lucky to have such a great group of ladies I can call friends.

My mom was sad she couldn't be here, but sent a fab present anyway!  She bought our infant seat, which we really needed.

Now all we need is Han Solo!
