Something wonderful is growing


Okay, so first of all, no I'm not pregnant.

Last weekend, I traveled to Cleveland, Ohio for my best friend, Rachelle's babyshower! She will be expecting a little girl in early December, and I can't wait to see the little angel. I especially can't wait for her and Grace to meet. We are going to force them to become best friends just like their mothers. I don't care if they hate each other. They are going to be best friends, yes they are!

This fabulous baby shower was organized by the one and only Beverly Lam, along with the talented help of Nancy Fong, Esther Fang and Charlene (church friends of Rachelle's). Beverly and Rachelle have the most creative ability to plan and organize the most amazing parties. I haven't been to many baby showers, but this one, themed "Something wonderful is growing"looked like something straight out of a magazine. I wish I had their talent, but all I really know how to do is plan games. Haha.

The baby shower was hosted at Nancy Fong's beautiful home (thank you, Nancy for opening up your home and helping with the shower!) The decor consisted of a table filled with colorful ribbons and creative supplies for a hair bow making activity, a onesie display with various stuffed plush vegetable toys, lots of food, painted mason jars with lavender flowers... AHHH and so much more! See below!


Forgot to mention that Beverly is also expecting :) 

Love the colorful fruit display. I think that orange with the little pink pacifier is hilariously cute


Vegetable decorated cupcakes with assorted flavors. Made by Esther and Charlene

Spray painted mason jars with lavender flowers. 

Stuffed plush vegetable toys

Hanging onesie display and vegetable toys from The Gap

The wishing tree: Green Leafs- notes for Rachelle and Mike. Butterflies- notes for Maleia

Assortment of colorful ribbons, soft fabric and decorative items for DIY hairclips

End result!

Giant plush toy friends.



Being silly

Welcome Baby Maleia, we cannot wait to meet you!

The highlight of this trip was not only being able to see Rachelle, Beverly and be part of this baby shower, it was also being able to meet all of her friends from Church who have been praying faithfully for baby Grace. It was so nice to be able to put a face to all the names on the email chains that I've received over the past few months while we were in the hospital. We appreciate you guys so much and could not have gotten through these past few months without your loving support and prayers. Thank you again and again. I hope to see you guys again soon!

  1. When I first read the title.. I was like OMG! She's preggers!! ^__^ But then you had to settle that rumor right away. hahaha...

    OMG this baby shower looks amazing!! Those giant plush toys are so cute! My Hubby was about to buy them at Ikea for our furbaby to cuddle with. haha.. And that idea with the watermelon with the baby orange-head. Awesome!! I'll have to do that once one of my friends get preggers. :)
