This is my parents' dog, Henry. He's lazy and overweight but the best cuddle buddy you'll ever find. He enjoys walks on the beach (seriously), wet dog food, and licking babies from head to toe. He dislikes exercise, haircuts, and pottying outside when the ground is wet. He may drive us all crazy occasionally, but we love him!
But that is NOT the Henry we threw a shower for on Saturday.
Instead, we showered the baby Henry my friend Jenny is about to have. You may remember his airplane-themed nursery from here. Jenny is just five weeks out from her due date so it was high time we gifted her with all the things she'll need for Henry's arrival. Allison and I chose to copy his nursery and carry the airplane-theme out for the shower.
Since the party was from 10am to noon, Allison and I decided on brunch type dishes. Brunch is pretty much my favorite meal ever, so I was especially excited about all the food!
Since it's been an exceptionally cold winter, we decided to have a hot chocolate bar to go along with the food. Go figure that it was over 60 degrees on Saturday! Oh well. It may not have been very fitting but at least it was still cute. We named all of the garnishments to go along with the airplane theme.
The best part of the shower was definitely getting to spend the day with some of my very favorite friends! Some (including Lydia and Margot) traveled in from out of town to help celebrate baby Henry. It was so good to get to see everyone! (I'm realizing right now that I did not do a good job of getting a picture of everyone there. Shame on me.)
Jenny insisted that I take a picture of every gift that had pretty wrapping. I should probably be offended that she didn't want a picture of my present.
With all the great stuff she received, Jenny should be just about set for Henry's arrival. And let me tell ya, that is gonna be one well-dressed little boy.
We couldn't let the party end without a picture of the guest of honor and hostesses!
Cheers to Henry! (The baby, not the dog.)
