Couples shower for Miss Maren

So our amazing friends {mostly from our community group} threw us the most fabulous, couples/baby shower I have ever seen! Let me just say, I have some pretty talented friends and I could not be more thankful for each and everyone of them! I can't even begin to tell you how humbled Marc and I were to get to experience this super fun party thrown just for our child! Maren is already so spoiled by all of her aunts and uncles! My friend Jenessa hosted it at her house and she used to be a full time wedding planner/coordinator then my other friend, Katie also plans parties and decorates for people, so those 2 together outdid themselves on this party!

Party favors and a super cute quote! The cute mug had a bag of coffee in it.

The theme was cocktails, mocktails and desserts. The desserts were so delicious that I tried one of everything, twice! :)
Macaroons, White choc covered oreos, strawberry and red velvet cupcakes, creme brulee,
and  chocolate yumminess were all on the menu.

Cocktails and Mocktails
Beautiful table arrangements

Sweet friends!

They also had a photo booth for everyone to play in! Everyone dressed up then had their pic taken by a Polaroid camera to be put in a book for Maren! So hilarious. 
Here were the dress-up options.

I mean I can't even handle it.

If I'm ever having a bad day, I will just open this book because of all of the hilarious photos in it!
Not sure when this book will be age appropriate :) Or How we explain all of these crazy people to her, but it's super fun and an awesome thing to have at any party!

Opening fun, frilly gifts!

My sweet fam came!

All of the wonderful Hosts/Hostesses

We are so very blessed to have this group of friends to do life with. We have been a part of it for 5 years now and each new couple that comes or has been there since the beginning with us, we have developed such strong friendships with over the years. Each of them have prayed for us while we were on our journey of infertility and encouraged us along the way.  I really don't know what we would do without them. We are so excited to be able to raise our child alongside them now as most of them already have children. We are looking forward to this next chapter and can't wait for Maren to meet all of her crazy Aunts and Uncles!

Thank you to all those who helped! I woke up just feeling humbled by you graciousness, love and support. We definitely don't deserve it.
