A Shower For Baby E

I'm excited to share a few photos from a baby shower that we had this weekend for a friend.

Taking full advantage of a kid free afternoon, we enjoyed a perfect spring day ideal for an outside lunch.  Sheltered from the heat of the midday sun under a beautiful tree in B's backyard.  She has an amazing backyard!

Drawing from the beautiful colors of springtime; the palette consisted of oranges, greens, yellows and pinks.

Fabrics from Heather Bailey's Pop Garden collection, rose bouquet in pink and zag strip pink, as well as a Joel Dewberry's Aviary sunburst in orange were used as colorful table linens.  Water pitchers and napkin rings were created using fabric strips from the Joel Dewberry fabric.

Seats were designated by a little initial card tied to the stem of each water glass with a colorful ribbon.  The menu consisted of an Asian chicken salad, carrot souffle, and  sesame seed baguette.  Followed by red velvet cupcakes and cake balls.

Fresh flowers were placed around the tables in vases and combined in arrangements with lettuce, limes and tangerines.

It was a joy to be asked to help with this party. thanks again B for letting me help!!  It turned into a very lovely and memorable afternoon.  I am so excited for my friend and cannot wait to meet Ella or Eli!!
