Katie's Baby Shower!

This past Saturday, I and six other friends hosted a baby shower for our sweet friend, Katie, and her baby boy, Ashton! Having it at my house, there was a lot of pressure (just from myself, of course) to make sure everything was perfect -- which is why I have been absent from my blog recently.
Let's start with the invitations.
Right about the time we started talking about Katie's shower, a Groupon/Livingsocial popped up in my email for an invitation company called Simply To Impress. I checked out their selection (always do this before purchasing!) and was actually impressed (no pun intended) with their selection and non-cheesy baby shower invitations. With the coupon code, I only spent $25 on 50 invitations (don't worry, not all 50 showed up haha) - which is awesome! Aside from the cute invitations, I thought their packaging was also really cute.
Savannah had the great idea of everyone giving Katie/Ashton their favorite childhood book instead of a card to help build Ashton's library. So I made a label that went on the inside of the book so that they could always remember who gave them which book! Katie loved it!!
And now on to the shower..
Some of the details.
{blue raspberry suckers as favors - personalized napkins - recycled ribbon from KA's shower made into a wreath - an alternative to a diaper cake, a diaper baby! - suckers and a sign saying "Boys are sweet, please take a treat" - A is for Ashton sign and baby blue paper straws}
The drink station
{sparkling pink lemonade from Trader Joe's - cucumber water - "Ashton's Bliss" which was a concoction of prosecco, pinot grigio, Sprite, and berries}

 Emily made the super cute banner!
 Katie's cravings table!
{pickles - taco dip for Taco Bell - fresh fruit - bacon, egg, and cheese "biscuits"}
Snow cones for dessert! {also part of her cravings}
 Washi tape on cups so you can write your name on it and not lose it:)

We all can't wait to meet Baby Ashton next month!!
