Milestones are meant to be celebrated with people close to your heart. Being pregnant is already a milestone let alone being able to come this far in a pregnancy that wasn’t easy to begin with. For this, our family and friends gathered together to shower Lucas with lots of love, well wishes and beautiful presents.
Although it was our family who threw the shower, we got to choose the theme. We opted for safari/wild/jungle just because we thought it was cute. Lo and behold, the theme went well with Contis’ interiors and I think Tina of SweetTooth did a great job filling the place with nice balloons.
McCoy and I told our family that we’d take care of the souvenirs as a thank you to everyone. So we personally made these—they’re gummy candies and milk chocolate coated almonds that we bought in bulk and repacked. I designed the stickers for the label while McCoy had them printed and cut one by one.
Of course the shower wouldn’t be complete without the fun part—games! My brother chose the games and initiated to arrange the program which he hosted together with his girlfriend. I didn’t expect the games to be that exciting, I think everyone in the party would agree with me when I say they were super fun! They’re a mix of traditional baby shower games and stuff he got from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. I might create a post exclusively about these games in the future.
McCoy and I couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who came to our celebration. Some came all the way from south like Alabang, Cavite and Laguna, and there was even a typhoon that day. That’s why we were glad they made it to the party despite the distance and not-so-fine weather.
McCoy and I would like to specially thank my parents and siblings for throwing an amazing shower! We’d like to thank also his parents, sisters and in-laws for being very supportive of our pregnancy, always sending stuff to us and Lucas before we even ask. Thank you! Hugs and kisses to you all.
