.abby's fall picnic baby shower.

My sister and sister-in-law are both due in October with their little girls. We had my sister's shower a couple of weeks ago, and we had Abby's shower yesterday.

It was a gorgeous day, and Fall was definitely in the air, so our "fall picnic" theme felt just right.

Mia's nursery is decorated in plum and aqua chevron, so we incorporated these colors and patterns in here and there, along with fresh wild flowers, gingham print, finger foods and a variety of pies as opposed to the traditional cake. (The pies were my personal favorite part.)


Pie (apple, cherry, pecan)
fresh baguette bread
cubed cheese
 red grapes
pita chips
spinach artichoke dip
quiche (spinach, bacon, crab)
apple orchard punch

We played a game where everyone got a list of characteristics & had to guess whether Abby hoped Mia would acquire Abby's or my brother's of each one.

The winners (we had a tie) received a goody bag filled with hand sanitizer, a nail file, nail polish, body butter, Burt's Bees chap stick and notepads.

We had such a great time and Mia received lots of pretty presents. I can't wait to meet my sweet niece! She'll be here before I know it and my heart will be so full.
