A Vintage/Anthropologie Inspired Little Man Baby Shower

Fox Cake

I’m excited to share this vintage, Anthropologie, little man inspired baby shower with you all today! Back in April a sweet friend of mine was going to be having a baby boy. I wanted to help plan/style the party. Since Tish (my friend) is a lover of all things eclectic, and is a photographer, it made sense to combine the two loves and create this dessert table. We wanted to bring an indoor nursery outside and created a faux wall to help feature the desserts. We used family pictures, art, “G’ for baby Greyson, and a DIY deer head (my […]

Skippyjon Jones Birthday Party

I am so excited to share todays Skippyjon Jones Birthday Party with you! We missed having a 3rd birthday for Asa (since my preggo belly was about to explode at any moment) so I started planning his 4th almost right away. After I got the pictures (from the lovely Courtney Miller), I knew I wanted to submit the party to Amy Atlas for a feature. (But first I had to get the guts to send it in!) So I finally did and now that she has featured it, I can post the details! A few years ago, a good friend […]

Emma’s Elegant Affair Bridal Shower

Emmasshower

Back in December my friend Stephanie and I hosted a shower for our friend Emma (and some other awesome ladies helped by bringing food and drinks).  It was one of the craziest weekends E-V-E-R. I did an insane thing.  I committed to 2 showers (yes, back to back on the same weekend!) and decorating for advent at our church. Not to mention it was two weeks after my surgery.  IN-SANE. Insane in the brain…insane in the membrane! It would not have happened if not for Stephanie.  She was a true rock star! After the first shower was over we cleaned […]

Bekah’s “She’s News to the World” Baby Shower

Bekahsshower3

Back in September (2011-yeah, I’m getting caught up baby!), my friends and I hosted a baby shower for our friend Bekah.  After sitting down one night and brainstorming, we decided to do a newspaper themed shower.  Since papers are black and white (well, sort of) we decided the accent color would be hot pink (Bekah is a girlie girl and was a having a girl so it made sense!) Here is a shot of the table.  We served brunch. Pinterest was our friend with this shower! For the backdrop my husband designed a mock newspaper.  We used a picture of […]

Stephanie’s Bridal Shower (A year late…better late then never…right???)

Steph4

My friend Stephanie got married last March.  I hosted a bridal shower in February for her (yes, 2011 *hangs head in shame*). I’m finally getting around to posting the pictures.  Our mutual friend Andi helped me get the backdrop set up and various friends (Parr, Renae, Lani and Andi) helped by bringing desserts for the table. We decided to go for the black and white theme (keeping it classy) with pops of green (it was one of her wedding colors). I decided to hang their engagement pictures on the backdrop to break up the pattern and to add a personal […]
