Blue Monday - Baby Shower

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

**Thank you to Lisa Easterling for some of these photos. (Mine turned out not-so-good.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My granddaughter is going to make me a GREAT grandmother soon; she's expecting a baby boy in December! I attended a baby shower this past Friday night, and I'm sharing the Blue you'll see in the pictures.

A cute idea for a baby shower decoration is to display childhood pictures of the father-to-be/mother-to-be by attaching them to a sheet hung over a door. Please note the Blue bibs and the Blue flowers. I admit that I took this terribly darkened picture. (sigh)



Here's the father-to-be, Matt, and the mother-to-be, Jenna, posing in front of the display.



Quite a few packages were wrapped in Blue.







Some gifts were Blue.





Refreshments reflected Blue for the baby boy.



Jenna is wearing Blue jeans. Matt is wearing a Blue shirt.



My daughter-in-law's mother (another GREAT grandmother-to-be) is wearing Blue. She's showing a pacifier that will have the baby look as if he's wearing a moustache. (I don't remember who gave it; it was so cute I just had to share it with you.)



Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Sally!


What a love idea ... a baby shower. I also like the idea with the children's pictures of the father.
But even the most beautiful things in the delightful baby blue.


Happy Monday

We don't really go in for "baby showers" in the UK or at least we didn't - maybe they do these days - looks like you enjoyed yourself though.

Jeanne said...

How sweet Sally. A baby shower for your great grandson to be is a lovely party. Jenna and Matt look so happy and excited. Jenna reminds me of you Sally. Lovely gifts and there is lots of blue. I think the idea of childhood photos of the parents to be is such a fun idea. A perfectly planned party for a very special baby boy to be. It won't be long now.

Congratulations and best wishes to all.
Love, Jeanne

Susan Freeman said...

Hi Sally,
I do apologize. I had the link up and then removed it when I could not add the photo to your site because it was too large. It was dinner time and I thought I would come back later to resize the pic and add your link back. I did not realize that the linking worked. So thanks for fixing it and your link back is on my site now.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
