We have been busy the past few days grocery shopping and packing to leave for our up north trip, but not before throwing one of my best friends a baby shower to celebrate her baby girl!
The backyard is nearly complete, so it was the perfect timing to show off how nice the landscaping is looking! So many heart eye emoji for the waterfall!!!!
We were anticipating a VERY hot weekend, so I opted to throw a brunch-themed shower earlier in the day, to try to beat the heat. It didn’t work. It was 89 degrees by noon. But we still had a blast! I planned a craft station, where guests could design their own baby beanie, bib, onesie, or headband. The guest of honor is SUPER crafty, so I knew she would love it. I avoided games (because who really enjoys shower games? not me!), but we did have these adorable “lotto” tickets!! ^we also had a crazy amount of preggos in attendance, so obviously a bump picture was necessary (in order of newly pregnant to ready to pop!) The burlap photo background was a brainchild of mine, and my friend who helped co-host was able to make it a reality!
The cake was a pipe dream. I have always wanted to try a naked cake, and the rustic/brunch theme seemed like the perfect time to attempt one! I used an 8×3 round pan to get fat layers. Once it was frosted and assembled, I cut roses about an inch after the bud and arranged them on the cake. Totally in love with how it turned out!
And now, to catch some z’s before our trip up north! (wish us luck on the car ride!!!)
