(AKA the longest post ever....so be prepared!)
Saturday, February 6, 2010, was James, Natalie, and Baby Bella's baby shower. Annslie, Carie, Christina, and I gave the shower. Christina was nice enough to let us have the shower at her house!
Here is the invitation. We went with the pink and zebra theme for the whole shower.
I ordered the invitations from this website. Kristen was GREAT! I would recommend using her to anyone! The invitations came already printed, with envelopes, and return address labels.
This is a picture of the main table.
A closer look.
The sign I made. It is kinda hard to read, but it says Welcome Bella Michelle.

Natalie, Baby Bella, and the table.
The cute cake. Carie made the bow and decorated the cake. I thought it turned out great!
Annslie, me, Carie, and Natalie.
The diaper cake I made. (Another post on this to come!)
Bella's wreath hanging on Christina's door. (Another post to come on this soon!)
Bella's blessing ring hanging on Christina's door. Natalie can punch holes in all of the cards she gets from all of her baby showers and place them in between the ribbons. This ring will be a reminder to James and Natalie, and Baby Bella someday, of everyone who shared in this important and exciting time in their life. (Another post to come on this soon!)

We had fruit and chocolate fondue. Christina and Annslie did an awesome job on the food!
More yummy food! We had veggie and dip, spinich dip, cheese dip, pinwheels, sausage, and cheese and crackers. And you can't have a baby shower for a baby girl without feather boas!
The gift table. Natalie got some really cute stuff!!
Some action shots...
Christina's house was perfect for the shower!

It's present time! James was so sweet to come to the shower! He even wrote down all of the gifts while Natalie opened them.
Bella will definitely know her name......and so will everyone she comes in contact with! She got plenty of cute monogrammed things!
