This past weekend, we got to attend the first of three sessions that we are going to have with Deesha and Dhaval: their baby shower! The event took place at Dharani Indian Restaurant and it was packed full of their family and friends! We have never seen a larger, more lively group of people at a baby shower before!
We were only sure of one thing going into this baby shower: that the food would be amazing. We didn’t get to eat any, unfortunately (#Whole30life) but Dharani is known for their amazing and authentic food! What we didn’t expect, though, is for the baby shower to be so much fun! Deesha and Dhaval and their families planned an evening that flowed smoothly as if it were a wedding rehearsal put together by a professional planner! We love couples who think about the experiences of their guests, and it was clear that Deesha and Dhaval value their friends and family.
From the moment guests arrived, there were appetizers to eat and games to play. They were asked to write funny messages on late night diapers, sweet messages for the soon-to-arrive baby, and even their suggestions for names! After appetizers, a slew of games were planned with specific participants for each. We love that family and friends were asked to be involved in putting on diapers one-handed, chugging water from baby bottles, and making diapers out of toilet paper. Deesha and Dhaval also got to play their own version of the shoe game with white boards. After toasts from their parents and them, dinner was served, followed by an epic dance party! We were so surprised and impressed that Deesha and Dhaval’s parents started the dancing out (okay, so Ian was surprised; Radhika thought it was normal).
We are so glad that we were able to meet and enjoy time with Deesha and Dhaval’s extended family and friends before their maternity session and newborn photos! Thanks for having us, you two — we can’t wait to see you again soon!
