John Deere Shower

Happy Monday!

Did y'all have good weekends?

Mine was one of the best of the summer!

Saturday, was our John Deere themed baby shower for my cousin RLE and his lovely fiancee KLB.

Friday night we were working up a storm to get all the final preparations done.

I made these marshmallow treats that Laur, from Sweets & Treats, posted about here.

Didn't they turn out pretty?

The shower started at 2 pm, so we got there around 12:30 to set up.

Marshmallow Treats--doesn't it kind of look like a bucket of flowers?

Main Table
Our menu consisted of ham biscuits, pasta salad, and chicken salad with croissants and crackers.

The cake table!

We ordered the cake from a Richmond favorite, Westhampton Bakery
It was delicious!  We did a layer of chocolate and a layer of yellow cake.

With the Momma to Be!

We only played one game,  called the "Crazy Baby Advice Game," which can be found here.  Then we followed with food, presents, and cake with lots of mingling and chit-chatting added into the day.

KLB received a lot of great gifts.  

I love her smile in this picture!

In addition, we requested that everyone bring a favorite children's book for the new baby, which thrilled the teacher in me!  

All in all, the shower was a huge success and a lot of fun!

In other news, Bryce got home from Canada late Saturday night.  Yesterday morning I headed over to his house and we cooked breakfast together.  After that we spent the entire day together and even took a trip to Belle Isle an area on the James River in Richmond to go for a swim and lay out on the rocks!  We're getting together again tonight and I am so glad he is back!

What did you do this weekend?
