A PW Baby Shower

Posted by Laura

With Kristin on the countdown to Baby Who's arrival (two months left!), we had the opportunity to throw her a shower last weekend. Since she loves the Pioneer Woman, we thought it would be fun to make it a PW themed shower.

The shower was held at Kristin's parents' house in the Berkshires. Her mom and sister did a superb job decorating. It was a perfect location that suited the Pioneer Woman theme perfectly. Their front porch welcomed the guests with a sign-in spot and gift-drop.

The inside of the house was decorated with such detail. The clotheslines where a perfect addition.



Perhaps the most mouthwatering part of the shower was the food (pun). Each dish was prepared from Ree Drummond's cookbooks and blog.

A great time was had by all. Kristin and Mike were "showered" with some amazing gifts, and now feel one step closer to their preparation for parenthood.

Kristin, I love you and cannot wait to meet Baby Who! Only two months left and Plant Eat Create will officially expand!
