Our extended family is growing by two. Judd's brother, Colby, and his wife, Brenna, are expecting a baby boy any day now. Additionally, my brother, Bryan, and his wife, Laura, are also expecting a baby who is due in December. As a result, we have participated in lots of showers and baby fun lately. In fact, my in-laws, Judd, and I had the pleasure of hosting a family baby shower for Brenna and Colby a few weekends ago.
The theme was "Frogs, Snails, and Puppy Dog Tails - That's What Boys Are Made Of". The location of the party was supposed to be at the Langham family farm; however, there had been so much rain at the farm prior to the shower that we had to relocate the party to my MIL's church fellowship hall. Just imagine a farm setting for all of the pictures in this post. :).
We had a blast even with the change of venue. One of my favorite parts of it all was the invitation my husband, Judd, created for the party.
We plan to get an Etsy shop started to sell our one-of-a-kind invitations and stationery very soon. For now, if you are interested in ordering the "What Boys Are Made Of" invite design, please leave us a comment on this post or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the invite's hand-drawn sketch did such a good job of establishing the type of decor we needed, decorating for the shower using things we already had at the farm was a breeze.
The food was yummy and the fellowship was even better. It was fun to host this event for Brenna and Colby.
