Baby Harned’s Dr. Seuss baby shower

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of trying to get the nursery put together, the house baby-proofed and wrap up projects for my clients so I can go on “maternity leave” in a few weeks.

Needless to say, its been a little crazy at the Harned house!

In the middle of all this craziness, Aaron’s cousins Lauren and Emily volunteered for the daunting task of throwing us a baby shower.

You’re probably wondering why this would be so challenging?

Let’s just say that I am not a “baby shower” type of person.

As I started browsing baby shower ideas on Pinterest, I immediately found myself envisioning an explosion of pink to rival the wedding in Steel Magnolias!

Luckily, Lauren and Emily were well aware of my aversion to the super girly and were determined to plan a shower that I wouldn’t just like but instead fall in love with.

They absolutely nailed it!

Since Baby Harned will have a Dr. Seuss nursery, they carried that theme over to the shower.

From designing centerpieces to basing the refreshments off of Dr. Seuss stories, they pulled out all the stops.

I went a little crazy taking photos of everything but I couldn’t help it, it was too cute!

My Aunt did these paintings for Baby Harned's nursery so Lauren and Emily displayed them at the shower.

A few snapshots from the shower. My sister-in-law crocheted the blanket in the top right and a couple of our college friends made the quilt with the Harned's Drive-In emblem.


I can not thank Lauren and Emily enough for all the hard work and creativity they put into this shower. It was absolutely perfect!
