Peter Rabbit Baby Shower

 I recently was a part of a group throwing a shower at work for one of our SPED teachers, Autumn.  She and her husband had a long journey before she was able to get pregnant, so it was a much anticipated pregnancy, and much celebrated on our staff.  She's been healthy each step of the way, and enjoying planning all the pieces that go into being a mama.  Her nursery theme is a nod to one of her childhood favorites Peter Rabbit.  We decided to do a shower in the same theme.  One of the ESL teachers is a whiz with invitations and put together a cute invitation, the guest names were printed on bunnies and attached with ribbons. 
 She also made some precious bunny banners to display.  I bought "Guess How Much I Love You."  Each member of our staff signed the inside cover and we gave this to Autumn for baby Soren's book collection. 
 The group hosting was given the assignment of bringing anything'garden' so little pots, berry baskets, stuffed bunnies, and books became our décor. 
 We put our food offerings in terra cotta pot bases. 
 I have a ton of little garden 'stuff' I used once before I've saved and pulled out for Easter etc....and so our muffins hitched a ride in this mini wheel barrow. 
 I've used this little planting caddy for years for just such an occasion. 
 For dessert one of the teachers made dirt.  We served lemonade in mason jars, and bagged up trail mix in some decorated brown bags. 
 There is no better reason to get together than the upcoming birth of a little miracle baby.  Looking forward to watching him grow!
