Love You To the Moon and Back Baby Shower

Moons, stars, planets, and spaceships dazzled together to create one celestial “To The Moon and Back” themed baby shower hosted by Operation Shower. Operation Shower is a non-profit organization that provides joyful baby showers for military families to ease the stresses of deployment, and we love supporting them! Forty military moms and their guests had an out-of-this-world shower with some help from PepsiCo. Keep scrolling to see all the darling details!
