Brea's Little Gentleman Baby Shower

They did it!  Our friends Brea and Cy are expecting a boy in a sea of friends with daughters, and my husband is very excited to know he now has a chance at a son our next go-'round.  Seriously, all of our close friends have girls and it was starting to get a little creepy; Brea and Cy also already have a little lady.  We are so excited for them, and not just because they are expecting a boy, but because they are fabulous people who truly deserve all the happiness (and mischief ;) a little boy will bring. 
 
I was delighted to host a Little Gentleman Baby Shower to celebrate the Little Man's upcoming arrival, and we can't wait to meet him!

 'Name That Gentleman' game using famous bow tie wearers.  How many can you name?

I had fun creating the custom water bottles using a Google image of a blue chevron pattern that matched the invitations.  I got the bow tie image from THIS invitation I purchased on Etsy.  I then used packing tape to adhere them to the bottles.

With the beautiful Brea.
 
I made bow ties for guests to wear using a sheet I found at Goodwill for $5.00 and a hot glue gun.
 
Favors that will actually get used (hopefully), Emergen-C packets and hand sanitizer.
