Molly and Jason Mesnick
Molly told family and friends she didn't want a typical baby shower. She wanted a "baby party."
It's a ? wreath
A pretty wreath decorates the shower's venue (a private home). Are you guessing boy or girl?
Guests enjoyed sweets from a dessert bar by Jenny's Cookies (yum!).
Baby welcome sign
The party had an animal theme, with decor, invitations and other stationery by Minted.
Gender prediction game
Guests took their best guesses at baby's gender and birthday.
Molly enjoys the games
"I had THE best time!" says Molly.
Guests brought bibs for the new baby. Our favorite? "Most Eligible Bachelor."
Nope, you can't eat this one. It's made of diapers for the baby-to-be.
Guests mingle at Molly's baby shower
"My two best friends flew in town for the shower," says Molly. "It was a total surprise!"
Guests took home favors with pretty, Minted packaging.
A sexy favor
What was inside those favor boxes — Hanky Panky underwear from True & Co.
Sweet Baby door sign
Molly is looking forward to meeting her sweet baby! "[I'm excited to] snuggle, kiss and hug that little peanut!" she says. "I just can't wait to meet him or her!"
To coordinate with the safari theme were animal-themed sugar cookies by Jenny Cookies.
Pretty hanging confetti
The littlest decor touches can really count! Like these cute hanging confetti pieces.
Dad makes an entrance!
Toward the end of the bash, hubby Jason arrived to surprise Molly. "[My stepson] Ty and Jason have just been so supportive of me throughout my entire pregnancy," gushes Molly.
Jason shows off his drawing skills
Guests — and Dad — played a Pictionary-style game.
Jason and Molly open a gift together
"Oh boy, I received so many wonderful gifts!" says Molly. "My best friend hand-knitted the most adorable hoodie sweater for the baby. I just love getting special gifts like that — gifts with meaning!"
Pretty mason jars wait to be filled with guests' drinks.
Molly poses by the sweets
We know you want to know — Molly's Tibi dress is available at Shop It to Me.
Oh Baby! cupcakes
We can't get enough of these gorgeous sweets!
Molly and Jason take a break
Aw, aren't they adorable? The happy couple takes five from the festivities for a cute photo op.
