A few weeks ago my husband and I traveled to Orlando, Florida for our baby shower! We live in NJ and basically our entire family lives in Orlando so it just made sense for us to travel down there for a shower. My wonderful sister, sister-in-law and mother-in-law put everything together for me. It was absolutely beautiful! The only downside was the typically unpredictable Florida weather! It started out as a beautiful morning then the afternoon showers came. But, after about an hour the sun came out again and it was great. It was such a great time to spend together with family and friends celebrating our little girl. It made everything feel even more real honestly.
For the theme, the only thing that I told them was that I wanted a Minnie Mouse theme but more of a feminine and floral style. Not the typical bright red or pink style. It came out exactly how I imagined it really.
My mother-in-law put together this awesome candy bar as well. And it doubled as favors! Aside from the other favors that we had. Everything was delicious!
We had some really fun games but I think my favorite of the afternoon was this game they found where the men have to put a balloon in their shirt and try to sit and tie their shoes. It was absolutely hilarious! Then they had to put a ball between their knees, hop across the floor, and try to put the ball into a cup. I’m telling you I’ve never laughed so hard!
We also had some great food! We had the event catered by Chef Montalvo Catering. I had a very simple requests for the food, I’m not a very picky person. Everything he made for our shower was amazing. The steak was so tender I was able to cut it with a plastic fork! The flavors were amazing. I would definitely recommend him for any other event you may have in the Orlando area! Check him out here.
In the end, everything turned out amazing. More than I could have asked for really. Looking back at all these beautiful photos just shows me how much our little girl is already so loved. Having everyone come out to celebrate her just meant the world to us. I can’t wait for her to be here in my arms and meet everyone that just showered her with love and gifts before she was even born.
All photos were done by my sister-in-law, Elsie Calo of Confident Motherhood. She does such a beautiful job for every event that she’s photographed for us. If you’re in the Orlando area you seriously need to contact her! Check her out here.
