This past Sunday was my Super Mario Bros. themed baby shower and it sure was a huge success! Most people like their shower to be a surprise and have nothing to do with the planning but not I! Of course me being the control freak that I am, I had to be involved. I couldn’t do much myself since I am not the craftiest of people, but I have great ideas and can help execute them. I also have many talented friends who are awesome at doing all types of things from graphic design, baking, making things, and they are just really crafty. Needless to say, thank God for Pinterest, which helped us all gather ideas and make it happen. I’m still mad about not having Pinterest for my wedding 5 years ago, ugh I could have really used it to organize my ideas. Bummer! Well, at least I have it now, and I’ll be able to use it for all the fun events I’ll be planning moving forward.
Anyways, on to the shower. I picked Super Mario because my husband is huge Nintendo fan, and he loves all the classics. I figured since we are having a boy, why not represent something that my husband loves? Ok, fine, I love it too!! hehe!
I hope you enjoy my pictures, but before you do I’d like to give credit where credit is due to all the wonderful people who helped put everything together. There is no special order but of course I’d like to thank my parents especially my mom, my sister Suzelle Marques, and my amazing friends Magen English, Diana Bartz, Linda Nguyen, and last but not least my husband for just dealing with all the craziness and keeping me sane (well, as sane as possible).
Everything in these pictures were made by us. We did not buy anything made or pay anyone to do anything except the cake. My cake was made by JLow Cakes and you can follow her on Facebook. She did an amazing job and it tasted amazing as well!
