There was this very special weekend in April of 2014. It was a weekend that every minute was filled and when the weekend was over, my heart was filled too. It started out as the weekend of Tamara's baby shower for my nephew. Mom and I were putting the shower on so I knew it would be amazing since mom is very good at decorations. Then Tamara sent the invitation list and sis-in-law Emily was on the list. To make a very long story short - the whole Mel Smith clan was in Boise for the weekend. We ended up having family pictures taken, went to brunch, celebrated Tamara at her shower and then celebrated Grandpa Smith's birthday at Steve and Marlene's house. Here are some pictures of Tamara's shower. I'll add pictures of the rest of the weekend in another blog post so this one won't be way too long!
Tamara wanted to have a tea party for her baby shower. We were able to collect all of these wonderful tea cup sets for the shower.
Here are some of the decorations that Mom and I made
These sewn circles were a lot of fun to make and made cute decorations!
Mom wrapped BABY in burlap - super simple and cute
The food table
Tamara with the yummy food!
Here she is - and that baby bump is my nephew!
Grandma Smith was able to make it to the shower - a special guest indeed.
Mandy, Tamara's sister from Wisconsin was able to make it out for Tamara's shower.
We Skyped with Tamara's mom so that she could be a part of the shower.
Unfortunately we didn't get a picture of Emily who traveled from San Diego to be at the shower.
Tamara made thank you favors to the guests of her shower. Coffee and tea!
