Molly told family and friends she didn't want a typical baby shower. She wanted a "baby party."
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!).
The party had an animal theme, with decor, invitations and other stationery by Minted.
Guests took their best guesses at baby's gender and birthday.
"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.
"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.
What was inside those favor boxes — Hanky Panky underwear from True & Co.
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.
The littlest decor touches can really count! Like these cute hanging confetti pieces.
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.
Guests — and Dad — played a Pictionary-style game.
"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.
We know you want to know — Molly's Tibi dress is available at Shop It to Me.
We can't get enough of these gorgeous sweets!
Aw, aren't they adorable? The happy couple takes five from the festivities for a cute photo op.
Animal-themed thank you notes by Minted — got to love it when your hosts help you out! What are your favorite baby shower ideas?
