My second baby shower in as many weeks!

Just a few pictures below of the event today. Jenn's mom (Linda) bought all of the decorations and made all of the favors. My part in the day was helping prepare all of the food (and boy was there food!), helping with the decorating and keeping track of the gifts.

A long view of the table that some of the guests sat at. In the background is the amazing cake we were served!

Another view of the table with the second on in the background. (Jenn and Daniel live in a great 1 bedroom apartment on the Hudson river with a neat view of Manhattan! For the size of this place, we were able to fit a lot of people in here!)

A close up on one of the place settings. Linda went all out for the decorations, including fresh flowers and flower garland, several shower favors, place cards and confetti. For an added touch, Daniel made giraffe and elephant chocolate candies for everyone, which were placed in a flower pot filled with Double Bubble bubble gum.

One view of the amazing cake. It was a giant cupcake, made with a mold from Williams Sonoma. The cake was a lemon bundt cake, complete with chunks of crystalized lemon peel. It was frosted with buttercream icing, and was so delicious!
