// Peter Rabbit vintage baby shower

I have five sisters-in-law. I don't have any sisters so marrying into a family with so many women has been a shock and has come with a learning curve. I love them and I love their babies. Anna, the latest SIL, is expecting her first in May. I couldn't be more thrilled. Seriously. Her and Phil's brother Andrew bought a house that is a mile from our house. This summer we will take walks together and I will hold her baby while she takes a shower. Because I like her a lot but mostly because I love the fresh smell of babies.

Another one of my sisters-in-law, Jaclyn, hosted a baby shower for Anna a few weeks ago. The theme was Beatrix Potter/Peter Rabbit with a little vintage mixed in. It was a beautifully executed day. The decorations and food were amazing. She did an awesome job.

My responsibilities were two: invitations and a punch beverage. The invitations were pretty and the punch looked like green slime from that show on Nickelodeon, I kid you not. 

Jaclyn cut pieces from a book she had gotten at a second hand store in order to make cute little buntings.

My mother in law put together a cute little clothes line including some family heirlooms.

We asked the guests to bring books instead of cards. Can you believe she didn't get any doubles?!

These are my sisters-in-law (minus Michelle who couldn't make it), 
my mother in law, and, the cutest of us all, Baby Eva.

Baby Eva gives me baby fevah.

The beautiful mama-to-be and her mama.
