Alexa Newsome entertained at shower in Duluth Aug. 5

Alexa Newsome of Decatur was guest of honor at a baby shower on Sunday afternoon, August 5, at the home of Vicki Langford, in Duluth, who was hostess with Renee England.

The entry hall chest featured the shower invitation on an easel, a bouquet of white roses and gypsophila in a blue vase tied with baby footprint design ribbon, and a decorative white plate laced with a baby design ribbon cradled on a stand.

As guests entered the living room, they signed the guest book. This area was decorated with a glass vase that held blue hydrangeas and blue wooden alphabet blocks that spelled out B-A-B-Y. The fireplace mantel featured a burlap wreath decorated with a blue bow along with pacifiers, a bib bandana, socks, and other accessories. A clothesline held an outfit for Baby Jumper.

The dining room table was covered in a white cloth and topped with a blue and white seersucker runner in keeping with the blue and white color scheme. A wooden round, used at the wedding reception of Alexa and Daniel Newsome, centered the table and held a white teddy bear in blue overalls and a blue vase holding a white rose and gypsophila. From the table guests enjoyed chicken salad croissants, shrimp cocktail, vegetables and dip, deviled eggs, pimento cheese dip with bread rounds, and cheese straw buttons. The sideboard held petit fours each topped with a blue bootie, in addition to white chocolate and strawberry tarts. Beverages served from the kitchen were champagne punch, soft drinks, and water.

During the shower guests were asked to write a message on diapers provided to add some fun to late night diaper changes.

Favors were decorative corked bottles of baby blue and white M&Ms.

Ten family members attended and included prospective grandmothers, Janna Cathcart of Covington and Mary Newsome of Washington.
