I have a friend…a friend who can do just about anything…and her name is Lizzy. Not only does she help manage a moving company, she teaches acting classes to kids and has now added party planner to her resume. Two weeks ago, she asked me to come take pictures of the baby shower she put together for Karmon & Austin. It was held at Kupcakz (71st & Mingo). She had Ron’s cater in burgers and Kupcakz made some amazing treats for the celebration. It was hard to take pictures instead of hanging out behind the counter to eat all of the delicious food.
This is Lizzy and her little one. She is fun, genuine, and super organized. If I ever have another baby, I hope she throws me a baby shower! Speaking of babies, there were lots of babies running around during the party. Lizzy set up a play area for them so that they would be less likely to have melt-downs during the event. Did I mention that she is smart?
Every detail was planned out, from the decorations to the games. This was a joint baby shower (for mom & dad) so the games couldn’t be too weird. No guessing what kind of candy bar is melted in the diaper. No blind taste test of baby food. Just good ol’ fashioned family fun. Lizzy planned some activities for the group to reflect back on the childhood of Karmon & Austin while they celebrated the life they’re about to bring into the world.
It was great to see family and friends there to support this next chapter for Karmon & Austin. Having a little one is hard work…it will be great to look back and see how much love surrounds this new life.
Congratulations, Karmon & Austin. The fun is just beginning!
