I know, we're spoiled rotten. You don't have to tell us.
This past Sunday my sweet mama and sissy hosted the sweetest and cutest baby shower ever for their soon to be favorite granddaughter/niece : )
my very favorite girls <3 p="">
Seriously it was so cute and perfect. The girls in my family really do know how to entertain and it was so much fun being the guest of honor at such a fabulous event! (well, technically the carrying vessel of the guest of honor I suppose ha)
Sunshine and weather in the upper 70's with a great breeze made for a picture perfect day hanging out on Mom's porch and deck with TONS of incredibly fun ladies, all of whom I love very much! It really was the best crowd. Home friends, local friends, college girls, my friends' mamas, family, neighbors, and really just so many special women in our lives- it was so absolutely awesome having them all there and I'm so touched by their love and enthusiasm for this milestone in our lives.
Adorable "spring shower" theme with cute and colorful springy umbrellas, rain boots/coats, cheerful flowers and some sweet rubber duckies sprinkled about.
Party favors for all 33 guests: adorable hand painted initial wine glasses, courtesy of my talented mama.

Fare included wine and bubbly, a springy and light ladies lunch with mini sammies, salads, etc. and delicious petite desserts.
I can't even begin to get into the amazing gifts Baby Girl received because as I have been saying all along and will continue to say- the girl is spoiled rotten and will without a doubt be the best dressed Marchetti for quite some time. I've never seen so many cute outfits and baby gear and oh my goodness- the river/beach/pool gear!!! She racked up swimsuits, covers, sun hats, baby boat coat, toys, floats- you name it! Even baby croakies which are pretty much the cutest things ever : ) We are so appreciative of all the great items from cutesy clothes to sweet blankets to oh-so-necessary diapers, wipes, gear and more!
It was too sweet for words, and I want to extend my absolute sincerest thanks to our friends and family who are all far too kind and generous to us!

And thanks Mom and Jess for such an amazing party- I can't believe all of this adorableness was just for us and we loved it so much!
Also, I know my Aunt Joan and Donna played a big part in pulling off this adorable party with Mom and Jess- thank you both! : )

I will be sharing one of our very FAVORITE gifts - it's a nursery item. It's been a busy (but REALLY fun) start to our week so needless to say, shower gifts haven't exactly been organized and put away yet so pics are on hold for now : ) Coming later though!
