a halloween treat

this weekend, i co-hosted a baby shower for our friend maggie. she is just 2 1/2 months ahead of me and it's been so great to share the experience of pregnancy together. it was really a lot of fun planning this shower. we made bunting flags for all sorts of things.. cupcake and cake toppers as well as a welcome message cut out in felt. for favors, we made candy apples and wrapped them in parchment paper. it was a great day with a wonderful group of people. it seems though that all of the excitement was too much for sweet baby morris because the very next day, she decided to make her appearance in the world!! lily madeleine morris was born on halloween (very fitting if you knew how much her parents love this holiday)!! she is doing fine and is a cute as can be. cannot wait to meet her!!!

candy apples lined the mantle on the fireplace beneath the "sweet baby morris" bunting flags

in lieu of cards, we asked guests to bring their favorite books for the baby

some of the yummy spread of food

one of the other co-hosts, jen, is a master baker. she makes the best cup/cakes in town!

the mom to be the day before her little bundle of joy arrived!
