a babycakies cupcake shower

This Saturday was my last and final baby shower (I really am done with 4 kids!). It was utterly perfect and babycakies and I felt quite loved. The celebration was a simple, yet fancy picnic surrounded by my closest friends and centered around something I love... cupcakes! Actually, I love all sweets, but this particular party was a cupcake decorating party. It was fun to see everyone decorate their cupcakes and try to win for the prettiest and the ugliest. Let me tell you that some of these gals got pretty creative with some ugly cupcakes. There were so many details that were lovingly infused into the whole celebration. I really do have the bestest friends!

Danni and Linda are pretty amazing together when they plan something, then throw in my mom, well, you just know it is gonna be great! To make sure they had all their bases covered and knowing how nerdy about pictures I am, they made sure to have my close friend Owen, who is a photographer, take pictures and then they know how much I love video, they had Jenny video.

If there weren't enough pictures on this post, can see more here and of course, they made sure to have a little video... all too perfect!
party planners: Danni and Linda (with my mom and sisters)
invitation: Danni (and this clever gal did the wording)
favors: Danni and Linda
food: my mom (and sisters)
photography: John Lauren
videography: Jenny Kim
my dress (cause I have a feeling you will ask): salvage house (see sponsor ad on the side, same dress, I had to have it once I saw it)

Want to read other posts on the party? See RJ's (my sis), Helen's, Linda's, Jenny's, Karen's, and I am sure Danni's will come up later up now here.

To all my friends (and family) who have spent the last five years throwing me baby showers... I love you all and am blessed by the love of God that flows through each of you. God is truly so good to me to give me such wonderful friends and I can hardly wait for the opportunity to give return the joy you each have given me! I love all of you lots!!!
