Elena (with the help of her mom, Andrea) went all out, bringing in china, crystal, gold-plated flatware and silver for us to eat and drink from. (Elena doesn't mess around when it comes to party planning! This is why she's become my partner in wedding coordinating, first for my friend, O'Hara, then for my sister's wedding and again in November for our friend, Noelani.) I can't even imagine all the hard work that was put into making the shower happen, but it was absolutely beautiful.
We got a lot of cute gifts, including a handmade blanket, a precious handmade stuffed dog toy, and some onesies that I cannot wait to put on the baby! Everything was absolutely perfect, and I felt really special and loved. Thanks to Elena and all my sweet, sweet school friends that helped her make it all happen!

There's a bottle of champagne hidden in this diaper cake. Makes me love it even more....
Fran, Noelani and Dr. Waxman. Fran actually taught Dr. Waxman's daughter in elementary school.
With Fran, my Tallahassee mother-in-law, and my sister, Melissa. I had to have my real family meet my school family!
Getting love from the best party planner ever!
