Mario Themed Baby Shower

Last year, I hosted a Mario-themed baby shower for my twin sister at her home in {Alexandria, VA}. She did the baby’s room in a Mario theme, which was an idea taken from an unfinished quilt my late grandma Mary was working on before she passed. We made a pact that whichever one of us had the first boy would get the blanket.  I gifted her the blanket at the shower and wanted to keep with the theme, hence the Mario Baby Shower.

Her {SURPRISE} shower was definitely one for the books!  We had a chef prepare dinner, a photobooth, a fun onesie decorating contest, and most important, we had best friends from all over the country, including Texas, California, and Indiana, attend her special day.  We even had a Skype/Facetime session for those who weren’t able to attend in person but wanted to share their love and excitement for the baby!

Here is a small picture recap from the day –
