Better Get Ready for the Boys!

Baby Showers are an exciting time for first time parents…and especially if baby boy twins are on the way! Soon to be mom Kathy is eight weeks away and is, well, radiant and the most beautiful pregnant mama there could be! Future dad Jeff simply cannot wait to meet “his boys.” My friends, Jennifer and Megan, and I threw them a couples shower and used their nursery room colors of turquoise, pear green and brown as the color scheme for this BBQ dinner.


A diaper ring wreath seemed appropriate at the door…glasses of wine were not to far off!


The banner was a clothes line complete with clothes pins, layette essentials for the twins, and baby washcloths. The boys’ names are Luke (Lucas) and Drew (Andrew.)

The wine bar included hand painted glasses…

and the appetizers table paid homage to Jeff’s devotions to the Razorbacks and golf.


Guests were both inside and out on a tolerable late summer night.

And dinner is served…a finger licking good BBQ feast complete with “less than delectable” descriptions of the many joys that parenthood has to offer…


followed by the best petit fours this side of the Mississippi!

It was a fun evening and we are all excited to watch this couple grow into a family!



  1. Makes me want to have another baby just so you can throw a cute baby shower for me...ok, maybe not...but everything looks adorable!

  2. Adorable! Over-the-top FUN, FUN, FUN. I marvel at your creative flair!

  3. Thanks! It's fun doing it and even better with friends!
