A very Girly Parisian Baby Shower

See this C-U-T-E belly?? my little niece is in there!
I couldn't be more tickled PINK 
{he-he pun intended}
Because I was so in love with this baby girl the minute I knew she was going to be a part of our family
I decided we were going to have a frou-frou girly looking baby shower!
What better way to go girly in a classy way than to go to Paris!
well not REALLY go to Paris. . . . that would have been the most expensive baby shower EVER!
and how the heck would we have kept that secret from the Mom & Dad to be!
YES we managed to keep it a secret {although I am sure my brother had his suspicions}
their friends even helped keep the secret & make it even more believable
I was so excited that my cousin had a HUGE wire Eiffel Tower. . it really set the tone & let everyone know it was a Parisian baby shower despite the fact my poor brother thought this party was his birthday BBQ!

Yes I am an ornery sister who went against my brothers strict instruction of NO PINK
How are you going to tell this chick that we cant do PINK for the 1st baby girl in this family since my baby sister was born. . . . 
UHHHH I don't think so Bro!
So I went BIG with the pink factor
and yes I think he LIKED it!
 I mean how could you not like the pink when its was paired with black & a fancy pants damask organza overlay on the table!
and yes I DID take it to the next step with the pink feather boa's
{you know I had to do it|~tell me you wouldn't??}
you can't see it in the picture but I also had pink gems on the tables too!

YUP. . . . I even made the cake pops pink just to be sure my brother realizes he better get used to girly!
but I did make sure {since it WAS his birthday after all} that he had Oreo truffles because those are his FAV

We also made sure he had plenty of hot wings!
something had to make up for all the pink in his life on his birthday
I just thought the girly clothes hanging up were so cute. . . and the pink lanterns gave it a touch of whimsy!

It was time to open gifts and we did have to warn all the men in the room that they were about to hear 500 ooooh's & ahhhh's
{worse than watching fireworks-had to put it in terms they could understand ya know}
Here is a closeup of the 2 handmade gifts I made for my brother & sister-in-law to have
*I just want to say here that I AM the sentimental sap in the family. . . it is always important to me to be sure I give a gift that someone appreciates for the sentiment attached to it. . . . I think I achieved that here*
 here is the magnetic frame I made so they can put one of her 1st pics in it~
I will post more about these 2 handmade items in a later post

 Here is one of the most awesome gifts EVER!
Their very good friend s Genevieve & Josh got baby girl
her 1st Wonder Woman book..... L-O-V-E as I am a huge fan of wonder woman!

UH OH Baby Mac is going in for the kill on the gifts
HEY he knows a good thing when he see's it!

 ummmmm Daddy to be is looking a lil' overwhelmed with the pink!!!
but Mama is looking pleased!
 Here they are Mom & Dad together having a great time with family & good friends
awaiting the day they get to meet their 1st baby face to face!
We are so very happy for them 
and I patiently await fall when I finally get to spoil a baby girl!
