My Elegant & Whimsical Baby Shower

Baby showers - they can be so kitschy you want to hid under the diaper cake or so babycentric you want to hid under those "chocolate" diapers.

I know I know baby showers are meant to be about babies. But shouldn't they also be about mom? and dad?! and having a good time.

Two of my best buds M & J put together a stellar baby shower. We of course used Pinterest for inspiration and despiration. Out: the candy diaper game, the chugging bottle game, and sorry, everything lame. In: pretty flowers, macarons, and a sense of elegance and whimsy.

We had lovely macarons from Fleur de Farine.
And these delicious dark chocolate cakes and raspberry lychee gelees from Alice as well.

Our baby set - presents, a diaper cake (I give credit, this one is adorable), and stuffed toys and toy blocks from our childhood.
"Who's that baby?" game. Our hosts collected baby photos from the guests and we had to figure out who each person was. Super fun. It took me 10 minutes to figure out some of my friends! Opening baby presents. It couldn't get more fun. This diaper bag from Skip Hop is amazing too.
