Today was my baby shower in Rochester. It was thrown by my Mother-In-Law and my Sister-In-Law. They had it at the Staybridge Suites which is a new hotel in the area. We were in the Rapids Room which had a door that you could walk out onto a veranda and be right next to the river. It was a very nice location.
Here is a picture showing the table set up-both pink and blue napkins of course!
This is a picture of each place setting. Each person had a small white box with a onesie cut-out on it and their name (place cards). Inside the box were mixed nuts and York peppermint patties. Each person also received a cut-out cookie as a favor.
These are the three cookie shapes they made-a onesie, a baby carriage, and feet. They were all so cute! My Aunt and a few cousins baked the cookies, then my in-laws frosted and decorated them.
This is a shot of some of the food-the fruit display and french toast. The food was very good. We had a quiche with mushrooms, broccoli and peppers. There were small roasted potatoes, chicken french, the fruit, french toast with almonds topping it (VERY yummy) and a basket full of pastries. They also got dessert trays from Orien's bakery (our fave gelato place) which were delicious!
Here are some pics of me opening gifts. We got a lot of wonderful things. My Mother-In-Law had everyone bring a baby book so we received a ton of good books to read. And no duplicates!! We also received our high chair, baby gate, a mobile, lots of cute outfits, some diapers, stuffed animals, etc. Everyone was very generous and the baby is going to be all set! It was a very lovely shower.
