When it Rains it Pours

Shower No. 2 (in two weeks) was for my dear friend, Julie Jane...and since her and her husband aren't finding out if they're having a son or daughter we decided to embrace a rainbow theme with some of her and Noah's favorite colors.
I'm kind of into ceiling installations for my parties...I think our high ceilings and box beams lend well to hanging things up, and thank goodness for my tall and willing husband who's always such a sport about my ideas! (thanks Jeff)
The gorgeous pregnant lady...absolutely glowing!
The party theme quickly turned "ombré" once I spotted THIS cake and THIS fruit kabob idea (I think I might like our version of the kabobs slightly more than the rainbow ones.)  Pinterest was quite an inspiration board for this, so fun!
Yep, we went for the cake (!) And I think it was a may be seeing this again.  Certainly I'll let you in on our yummy little secret, cause did I mention it was gluten free?  We used Pamela's vanilla cake mix and did the coconut version.  I'm honestly not a cake person, but the coconut milk made it so...I'm going to say it...moist and delicious. I HIGHLY recommend it.


Julie was thoroughly showered by some amazing friends who are all lucky to have her...we just can't wait to snuggle her little one!
We love you Julie Jane! Jen and I had such a great time throwing your shower. Blessings to you!
